Course Descriptions

Our engineering design program offers an intensive hands-on education taught by experienced professors from both engineering and the humanities and social sciences. The program is designed to teach students the depth and breadth of the design process along with the necessary technical tools and professional skills to improve the world we live in. Engineering Design is an undergraduate program.

ENGD 120 - Engineering Design Studio III: Integrating Electrical, Software, and Societal Systems

Continues the design process with software development, instrumentation and measurement techniques, and cultural, historical, and social contexts and values surrounding scientific and technological development work. Adds more advanced programming concepts (implicit loops and conditionals) and tasks of software development (such as development of user interfaces). Includes use of electronic components (op amps, capacitors, inductors) and signal processing (amplifiers and filters). Social contexts for analysis of technology and its history include gender and work, with particular attention to the social implications of biotechnology. Students may not receive credit towards graduation for ENGD120 and any of CSSE120, ES213, or IA239. Successful completion of ENGD110 and ENGD120 satisfies the requirements of an ES213, ES213L, CSSE120, and IA239.
