|Engineering 150 is a one-credit fall course that lets
first-year students get to know their faculty advisors during the first
eight to ten weeks of the semester. Students meet regularly as a group
with their faculty advisor to discuss a range of engineering topics.
Discussions may include the engineering curriculum, aspects of various
engineering careers, active research in the college and engineering in
general, and study and examination skills useful to engineering
students. Groups may also visit campus academic, engineering, and
research facilities. All first-year students are pre-registered in a
section of ENGRG 150. The objectives of ENGRG 150 are:
|The course is Pass/Fail. The key purpose is to attend and participate in the sessions. The more engagement everyone has, the better the experience and growth for all.
