1.101 Introduction to Civil and Environmental Engineering Design I
Introduces the creative design process in the context of civil and environmental engineering. Emphasizes the idea-to-product trajectory: identification of a design question/problem, evaluation of requirements/constraints set by the application and/or client, and implementation into a concrete product deliverable. Fosters active learning through open-ended, student-driven projects in which teams apply the design process to a design/planning problem. In labs, students design and build a working model or an experiment that addresses a specific engineering aspect of their project. In addition to written and oral presentations, students start a web-based portfolio. Enrollment limited; preference to Course 1 majors and minors.
This class has no prerequisites.
1.101 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by P. Reis.
