EGR 100, Introduction to Engineering Design, is a college- level course required of all incoming first-year engineering students. It is an integral part of the CoRe (Cornerstone and Residential) Experience. The course introduces students to the engineering profession and the engineering design process through team-based, interdisciplinary design projects and assignments. There are 949 students enrolled in EGR 100 this semester.
For the final course project, the student teams selected from five project types: (i) Design of a Heat Exchanger, (ii) 3D Printing CAD Drawing, (iii) Design of a Water Filtration System, (iv) Costa Rica Community Design, and (v) CoRe Industry-Sponsored Projects. CoRe Industry-Sponsored Projects involved collaborations with BorgWarner on Hydrogen Fuel Cell System Requirements and GE Renewable Energy on Wind Turbine Gearbox Life Extension.
