ENGR101 : Introduction to Engineering

Provides a broad introduction to the engineering profession for those with little or no prior exposure to the subject while providing a foundation for additional study in engineering. Students are introduced to the engineering profession and different disciplines of engineering. The interdependency of these disciplines will also be explored through the completion of projects that require input from several disciplines of engineering.
