E100: Introduction to Engineering
Engineering 100 is an engineering student’s first taste of what it is to be a practicing engineer! This project-based course simulates a real-world engineering environment. Each section asks students to complete an engineering project where they design a solution to an authentic, real-life problem. Students can choose from a range of different sections, each with its own project focus – from radiation mitigation to robotics to rocket science, and more!
What will I learn?
Every ENGR-100 section shares the same four core learning outcomes. Students will learn to:
- Employ the Engineering Design Process
- Communicate Effectively as an Engineer
- Collaborate in Diverse Teams
- Understand and Practice Professional Engineering Values
What makes E100 unique?
Engineering 100 helps Michigan Engineers learn how to integrate design, communication, teamwork, and people-first engineering in one unified experience. Uniquely, this course embeds writing and communication instruction (first-year writing requirement) within the engineering discipline. This discipline-specific writing instruction helps our students learn the professional communication skills necessary to build their engineering career.
