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 303 - Systems Architecture Practicum

  • Credit Hours: 0R-12L-4C
  • Term Available: Su
  • Prerequisites: ENGD 260 and student must obtain professional employment such as an internship or co-op.
  • Corequisites: None

This class will introduce students to the art and science of systems architecting, where systems architecting refers to uncovering the fundamental structure of a system (functional, physical, logical, operational) defined in terms of system’s elements, interfaces, processes, constraints, and behaviors that must operate under specific requirements and constraints. Focus will be placed on investigating the broader meaning of architectures, as they relate to organizations and businesses, in addition to engineered systems and products. Students will apply course concepts to their work environment. The work environment must contain some phases of the design process such as stakeholder analysis, conceptual design, risk analysis, detail design, manufacturing, testing, validation, or recycling. Students may not receive credit for ENGD 303 and either of EMGT 464 or EMGT 564.
