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 693 students enrolled in EGR 100 this semester.
For the Spring 2016 final course project, the student teams selected from seven project types: (i) Solar Car Competition, (ii) Cell Phone App Inventor, (iii) Robotics Tournament, (iv) Engineers Without Borders (EWB) Design, (v) MSU Adaptive Sports and Recreation Club Project, (vi) Residence Education and Housing Services (REHS) Design, and (vii) CoRe industry-sponsored projects. The EWB project involved the design of a bridge system. The Adaptive Sports and Recreation Club project was the design of an athletic walker. The REHS project addressed improvements to the residence hall move-in / move- out process. CoRe industry- sponsored projects were collaborations with ArcelorMittal, Delphi and Tenneco. 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.
