EGR 111   Solid Modeling and Design   1 Units

This Proj.-based course Introduces students to reverse engineering & three-dimensional design using industry st&ard solid modeling software (SolidWorks). The course assumes some previous knowledge of solid modeling, such as would typically be gained in an Introductory engineering graphics & computer aided drafting course. This course will include one or more reverse engineering Proj.(s) that will require the students? application of engineering problem skills.

EGR 176   Creative Problem Solving and Project Management   3 Units

This course is designed for students in any discipline to underst& creative problem solving & Proj. Mgmt.. The course is an interdisciplinary course teaching design, problem solving, & Proj. Mgmt. skills by applying these principles in the context of a Rube Goldberg machine. The course will focus on solving the Rube Goldberg challenge for the year with the end product being a competitive Rube Goldberg machine. The course will cover topics in creative problem solving, design work, teamwork, Proj. Mgmt., sketching, public speaking, presentational performances, publishing, stage & set design & construction. The final product will then be displayed for the campus community & toured throughout various community events & schools.
