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 1,045 students enrolled in EGR 100 this semester.
For the Fall 2016 final course project, the student teams selected from seven project types: (i) Solar Car Competition, (ii) Cell Phone App Inventor, (iii) Robotic Competition, (iv) MSU Adaptive Sports and Recreation Club Project, (v) Residence Education and Housing Services (REHS) Design, (vi) Peckham and RCAH Straw Bale Structure Design, and (vii) CoRe Industry-Sponsored Projects. The Adaptive Sports and Recreation Club project involved the design of an athletic wheelchair support. The REHS project addressed improvements to the residence hall move-in / move- out process, and the Peckham and RCAH Structure included assessments of straw bale structure design. CoRe industry- sponsored projects involved collaborations with ArcelorMittal on an annealing furnace gas sampling system, Delphi on 48- volt mild hybrid architecture, and Tenneco on the design of a pothole reporter. Teams from each of the project types will display their prototypes at Design Day along with posters detailing their design concepts. Pre-college students will recognize the most outstanding projects with awards.
