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 726 students enrolled in EGR 100 this semester.
For the Spring 2017 final course project, the student teams selected from seven project types: (i) Solar Car Competition, (ii) Cell Phone App Inventor, (iii) Robotics Competition (iv) MSU Adaptive Sports and Recreation Club Project, (v) Residence Education and Housing Services (REHS) Design and (vi) CoRe industry- sponsored projects. The Adaptive Sports and Recreation Club project involved the design of an athletic wheelchair transfer aid and the REHS project addressed improvements to the residence hall move in / move out process. CoRe industry-sponsored projects involved collaborations with ArcelorMittal on parking lot optimization and safety, Delphi on 48-volt mild hybrid architecture, and Tenneco on the design of heat pipes. Teams from each of the project types will display their prototypes at Design Day together with posters detailing their design concepts. Pre- college students will recognize the most outstanding projects with awards.
We would like to thank our Spring 2017 project sponsors:
