Course Objectives The aim of the course is to examine the engineering aspects of various systems and devices. Student will gain exposure to the basic fields of engineering and the interrelationships among engineering, science, mathematics and society. Students will develop a number of skills that will help them excel in their chosen engineering field.
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • perform teamwork tasks effectively
  • communicate effectively by writing
  • prepare a solid curriculum plan for each semester including summers
  • analyze a real-life problem and designing a solution process with team
  • use project management technics for problem solving
  • identify major problem-solving tools used in engineering practices
  • define basic units of length, time, mass, force, temperature, electric current, energy and power, and related parameters frequently observed in engineering problems
  • make an effective presentation
Course Description The course will cover basic engineering concepts such as units, engineering analysis and design process. The second half of the course will be dedicated to program-based introductory content.
