Engineering 5 is a half-credit course for those interested in engineering, presenting techniques, and tools that engineers use to define, analyze, solve, and report on technical problems and an introduction to department facilities. Designed for students who are potential majors as well as those interested only in an introduction to engineering. Although Engineering 5 is not required of prospective engineering majors, it is strongly recommended.

Your evaluation for this course will be based upon the assignments and laboratory exercises.
