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 1097 students enrolled in EGR 100 this semester.
For the Fall 2017 final course project, the student teams selected from four project types: (i) Solar Car Competition, (ii) Cell Phone App Inventor, (iii) Robotics Competition, and (vi) CoRe industry-sponsored projects. 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.
