ENGR 13200: Transforming Ideas to Innovation II

Course description

A partnership between Schools and Programs within the College of Engineering, introduces students to the engineering professions using multidisciplinary, societally relevant content. Developing engineering approaches to systems, generating and exploring creative ideas, and use of quantitative methods to support design decisions. Explicit model-development activities (engineering eliciting activities, EEAs) engage students in innovative thinking across the engineering disciplines at Purdue. Experiencing the process of design and analysis in engineering including how to work effectively in teams. Developing skills in project management, engineering fundamentals, oral and graphical communication, logical thinking, and modern engineering tools (e.g., Excel and MATLAB). Syllabus

Learning goals

ENGR 13200 builds upon the knowledge, skills, and practices covered in ENGR 13100. The Enduring Outcome of ENGR 13200: Guided by professional habits, students will continue to learn to make evidence-based engineering decisions in diverse teams.

In ENGR 13200, you will learn to:

  • apply basic programming concepts to the solution of engineering problems,
  • represent and interpret data in multiple formats,
  • develop, select, modify, and justify mathematical models to solve an engineering problem,
  • function effectively as a member of a team, and
  • demonstrate habits of a professional engineer.

ABET outcomes

ENGR 13200 includes components that address the following ABET outcomes (bolded outcomes are particularly important for the course):

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science and mathematics
  2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  3. an ability to communicate efficiently with a range of audiences
  4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
