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 659 students are enrolled in EGR 100 this semester.
For the final course project, the student teams selected from five project types: (i) Robotics Challenge, (ii) Solar Car Competition, (iii) Cell Phone App Inventor, (iv) Thermal Insulator Design, and (v) MSU Resource Center for Persons with Disabilities (RCPD) Designs. There were four RCPD projects including Assistive Tools for Understanding Multivariable Calculus, Assistive Tools for Understanding Physics, Basic Electronics Assistive Tools and Accessible MSU Campus Maps. 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.
