Section 590: Wireless Microscopic Ore Rover (WMOR)

Autonomous and remotely-controlled vehicles are important tools used for exploring terrestrial planets and planet-like moons. In this section, you will design, build, and test a rover system capable of collecting microscale ore particles from an emulated planet surface and transferring particle samples to the onboard microscope for material characterization.

Section 580: Bio-inspired Design

Section 580: Bio-inspired Design

Bioinspired design views the process of how we learn from nature as an innovation strategy translating principles of function, performance, and aesthetics from biology to human technology. The creative design process is driven by interdisciplinary exchange among engineering, biology, medicine, art, architecture and business.

Section 750: Engineering for Social Impact

When developing new technologies, engineers must carefully consider the impact their decisions may have on individual stakeholders and on society as a whole. In this course, you will learn a variety of prototyping methods within the context of a socially-engaged design process. You will then apply these skills to address a real-world problem in the field of public transportation.
