First Year Engineering Design Showcase Fall 2015

During the first year at TCNJ, all engineering students take ENG 142 – Fundamentals of Engineering Design.

Fundamentals of Engineering Design provides an introduction to the study of engineering design and the fundamental skill-sets used in the design process. Topics include team dynamics, effective oral and written communication, spatial visualization, and problem solving/engineering design process. These topics are practiced through team-based projects and interactive activities. Breakout sessions specific to each discipline cover additional appropriate topics, providing an overview of several areas of engineering outside of the declared major.

Freshmen complete a Student Design Showcase Project as part of this course. Below are the winners and pictures of the participating students in the Fall 2015 Design Showcase.
