ENGT 291 Design, Build, Test, Repeat

5 credits
A collaborative, multi-disciplinary, hands-on exploration and use of varying methods of part, mechanism, and product build, analysis, and testing. Focus will be on proving/disproving/improving functional design for use. The positive and negative aspects of Engineering Failure will be explored. Scientific and practical methods will be applied to a range of part, mechanism, and product designs.

Prerequisites: ENGT 123 ENGT 141 ENGT 225 , and MACH 108  

Corequisites: ENGT 211  and ENGT 226  

Quarters Offered: Cohort 1: Fall; Cohort 2: Spring

Student Outcomes/Competencies:
Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to:

  • Demonstrate an ability to determine the design needs of the customer
  • Define “Failure” and its productive application to the design process
  • Apply hands-on, physical prototyping and testing methods to improve design performance and function
  • Work in a collaborative environment
  • Show functional level of proficiency in safe and effective use of practical test methods, tools, and machines
  • Demonstrate proficiency in use of Finite Element Analysis software to determine “problem” areas on a part or mechanism
