(QUANTITATIVE REASONING)

ENGR 489 ENGINEERING DESIGN PROJECT (4 credits)

Design an engineering solution to a specified need, incorporating appropriate engineering process and standards and meeting multiple realistic constraints. Research prior knowledge; identify clear design specifications; create prototypes; conduct appropriate experimentation, modeling, and theoretical analysis; and analyze and interpret results. Each student's individual contribution will address a unique project component or system and be appropriate and sufficient for writing up as a senior thesis. Recommended: an 8-9 credit sequence to develop practical engineering and science skills, such as: ENGR 025, ENGR 252, ENGR 253; or ENGR 315, ENGR 316; or COMP 160, COMP 161, COMP 262.

Prerequisites: ENGR 310 and consent of instructor. Recommended: an 8-9 credit sequence to develop practical engineering and science skills, such as: ENGR 025, ENGR 252, ENGR 253; or ENGR 315, ENGR 316; or COMP 160, COMP 161, COMP 262.
