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 655 students enrolled in EGR 100 this semester.
For the Spring 2018 final course project, the student teams selected from four project types: (i) Solar Car Competition, (ii) Cell Phone App Inventor, (iii) Advanced Robotics Competition, (iv) 3D Printing, (v) Water Quality, and (vi) CoRe industry-sponsored projects. CoRe industry-sponsored projects involved collaborations with ArcelorMittal on an annealing furnace gas sampling system, Aptiv on autonomous vehicle sensing design, and Tenneco on the design of a heat pipe. 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.
