Engineering (ENGR)

ENGR 100S Introduction to Engineering (1)
(FYS)

Engineering 100 is a First-Year Seminar designed as an introduction to the majors available to students in engineering. There are three main goals:

1. To introduce students to the areas of study that the college has to offer - this is to assist students in deciding whether engineering is for them. It also helps students decide which major within engineering is for them. This introduction is accomplished through homework exercises and guest speakers - graduates in industry, graduate students, department heads, faculty, and current undergraduates.

2. To introduce students to the university in general - what resources are available and what it means to be a student at a university instead of high school. This is accomplished through guest speakers, lectures by your professor, and homework exercises.

3. To provide students with an opportunity to interact with faculty members, academic advisers, and other students.

The class meets twice a week. All sections meet together once a week to listen to presentations from people representing each major. On the other class day, sections meet separately with their professor for presentations and activities unique to that instructor.
