ENG162 Engineering Challenge 2 (14)

This subject will continue to develop the student engineers’ professional identities and capabilities from ENG161, while drawing upon the technical skills developed elsewhere in the curriculum.  Student engineers will work in teams to tackle a session-long engineering challenge with social, environmental, economic and human dimensions.  In particular, this challenge will focus student engineers’ efforts on the process of engineering, the engagement with people outside of their design team, and the communication of their ideas and designs to both technical and non-technical audiences.
