Engineering Science (E SC)

E SC 411H Senior Research and Design Project II, Honors (2) Design and synthesis in the context of a specific design project undertaken during the senior year.

E SC 411H Senior Research and Design Project II, Honors (3)

E SC 411H is the third of a three-part series of courses that constitute the Engineering Science honors capstone research and design project. Engineering Science students participate in projects in all engineering disciplines and employ design principles before, during, and after analysis, experimentation and/or simulation. The resulting designs of systems, components or processes are then tested and refined by changing material, geometric, stochastic or other parameters, as required. E SC 411H is the continuation of E SC 409H and 410H. All three courses are required of Engineering Science majors and together they comprise the capstone research and design project, which integrates the scientific principles of research, design, and analysis and applies them to a particular field of engineering. In-class lectures and discussions on a wide range of topics such as design, engineering ethics, international relations, engineering management, safety, government and public policy, environmental issues, workforce preparation and graduate school occur in tandem with the students' development of their individual topics.
