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 708 students enrolled in EGR 100 this semester.
For the final course project, the student teams selected from ten project types: (i) Solar Car Competition, (ii) Cell Phone App Inventor, (iii) Solar Water Heater Design, (iv) MSU Resource Center for Persons with Disabilities (RCPD) Adaptive Designs, (v) MSU Residential Hall Waste Reduction Designs, and (vi) CoRe industry-sponsored Projects. There were two RCPD projects including Basic Electronics Assistive Tools and Assistive Tools for Middle School Math Instruction. CoRe industry-sponsored projects included a collaboration with ArcelorMittal on Overhead Crane Rail Conflict Avoidance System Design and a Delphi partnered Autonomous Vehicle Development Design. Teams from each of the project types will display their prototypes at Design Day along with posters detailing their design concepts.
