ENG161 Engineering Challenge 1 (14)

This subject draws upon the Engineers Without Borders annual challenge to provide teams of student engineers the opportunity to solve real world problems with human dimensions.  Student engineers work in teams to respond to the Engineers Without Borders challenge, and will then have to communicate their achievements to both engineers and non-engineers.  The development of technical, teamwork and communication skills are supported as student engineers begin to develop the CSU Engineering mindset.
