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 and present their projects at the end of the semester. Below is a list of the teams from the Fall 2021 semester.
