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 1042 students enrolled in EGR 100 this semester.
For the Fall 2015 final course project, the student teams selected from six project types: (i) Solar Car Competition, (ii) Cell Phone App Inventor, (iii) Engineers Without Borders (EWB) Projects, (iv) MSU Resource Center for Persons with Disabilities (RCPD) Adaptive Designs, (v) MSU Adaptive Sports and Recreation Club Designs, and (vi) CoRe industry-sponsored projects. The EWB design projects were Solar Water Heater Design, Water Purification System and Rainwater Collection System Design. Two RCPD projects were offered including an E-Bike Cargo/ Passenger Carrier and a Hand Cycle Pedal Adaptor offered jointly with the Adaptive Sports and Recreation Club. Adaptive Sports and Recreation Club projects also included a Throwing Chair Stabilizer and Athletic Wheelchair Toe Guard. CoRe industry- sponsored projects were collaborations with ArcelorMittal on Overhead Crane Safety Zone Alert and a Furnace Exhaust Gas Sampling System. 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.
