First-Year Engineering

Beginning engineering students enroll in First-Year Engineering and complete a common first year curriculum before moving to their engineering major. Students from a wide range of backgrounds develop a common knowledge base and skill set they will need as they move through their engineering degree program and career.

Making Sense of ENGR 131/132

"I wanted to let you know how helpful ENGR 131/132 has been since I have started my career at UTC Aerospace Systems. A lot of what I have been doing so far involves team dynamics, working with new people (customers), and a lot of Microsoft Excel use. In all honesty, it was hard for me to see the point of some of the lessons being taught both as a student and a peer teacher. However, I just wanted to commend you and your team for all of your hard work in truly preparing me for life in the engineering world."
