Unit 1 - Design Process

The goal of Unit 1 is to introduce students to the broad field of engineering
and a design process that engineers use to develop innovative solutions to
real problems. Students become familiar with the traditional big four
disciplines of engineering and the extensive array of career opportunities
and engineering problems addressed within each discipline. A design
process is presented as a structured method for approaching and
developing solutions to a problem. The art and skill of brainstorming is
emphasized as students begin to develop skill in graphically representing
ideas through concept sketching.
