Students completing this course will have the ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs in aircraft systems; they will have the ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams; and they will have the ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems. In addition, students will have the background to help determine what the ethical responsibilities are to themselves, to employers, and to society. Classes (115 minutes each, twice weekly) include lecture and time for team meetings.
