To succeed in their fields, today's engineers must:
- Be multi-skilled, multi-faceted, and multi-disciplinary
- Be able to collaborate on projects with engineers from different disciplines
- Possess strong skills in communication and teamwork
- Have an understanding of all engineering disciplines
Introduction to Engineering and Computing, the college's innovative first-year course, provides you with experiences across the engineering disciplines. The course—better known as EGR 111—focuses on:
- Skills essential to success in any engineering major
- The design process as a whole, rather than on a specific major
You'll learn about the engineering professions and about integrating technologies in engineering systems.
Building teamwork skills & confidence
A primary focus of this integrated first-year course is your transition from high school to the demands of an engineering or computer science college curriculum. EGR 111 builds confidence, introduces teamwork skills, and provides hands-on experience. You'll work as part of a multi-disciplinary team on lab design projects.
Positioning you for career success
EGR 111 is taught using active and collaborative learning techniques. A key goal is to improve student success and retention across the engineering disciplines.
Through early immersion in multi-disciplinary engineering activities, you'll be on your way to academic and career success.
