Description

This skills-based course will introduce students to the "engineering process". Through a series of lectures, exercises and projects, the students will gain experience in specific skills and activities that contribute to the engineering process. Examples include problem solving, technical sketching, team work and report writing. Additionally, the importance of sustainability, ethics and biculturalism in an engineering context will be introduced. Students will also gain a better understanding of the different engineering disciplines in regards to a career choice.

Upon enrolling for ENGR101, students will be assigned their workshop session time.  After the end of week 2, students will not be allowed to change their session time unless there is an unavoidable timetable clash.

Workshops provide opportunities for students to learn and extend skills taught in lectures, and to work on the group-based Major Design Project.
