First Year Design Showcase Spring 2014

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.  The Spring 2015 problem statement was “Design a product or device that will enable a person to perform a task with one hand that would normally require two hands.”  Complete Photo Album
