Perspectives on EG1004
Our world is becoming ever more complex. For engineers to create effective solutions to today's challenges requires more than their own technical expertise - it requires the ability to work on multidisciplinary teams, to communicate with various stakeholders, and to manage projects at various scales.
Being able to do so requires practice. Here in EG-1004, our goal is to empower first-year students as they begin this practice through labs and semester long projects. While the course has evolved since its original form launched in 1993, this remains its core mission. In this manual, you will find the activities and materials to help us accomplish this.
