Students are introduced to the world of engineering and manufacturing through activities that showcase how products are designed and built. Teams design, build, and test a weight-bearing structure, as-well-as reverse engineer a product to improve its design. Classroom and laboratory exercises are designed to expose the student to the different engineering and advanced manufacturing disciplines. Lab sessions provide hands-on exposure to the concepts discussed in the lecture sessions. This course does not require any prior engineering background.
