Pre-requisite: (ENG2102 or ENG1003 or ENG1101) and Undergraduate students must have completed 14 courses in their program.
Undergraduate students must have completed 14 courses in their program.
In this course, the widest implications of a service, product, or process are considered at the project design stage, including not only the technical interactions of the various subsystems, but also the financial, ethical, political, sociological, and socio-economic implications. This course leads the student to an understanding of the philosophy and methodology of the design process in the context of systems which embrace political, sociological, economic, technical, and ergonomic aspects.
The Technology Design Project is the capstone project course in the three-year Bachelor of Engineering Science program. The project is team-based with students working in small groups of four students drawn from a specific discipline area. Each team will work on a broadly specified project drawn from a list recommended by staff. The project is intended to enable students to demonstrate their attainment of in-depth design skills with a definite deliverable in the form of a detailed report accompanied by engineering drawings and related calculations. The experience gained in this course will enhance a student's ability to perform project work, to be innovative, to solve problems and identify solutions, thereby developing engineering judgement
This is a senior course and it is assumed that the student has the maturity, knowledge and skills base commensurate with having completed the first two years of their undergraduate course.
