Course Description

Course Objectives

As outlined in the College of Engineering's legislation, the objectives for ENGRG 150 are:

  1. To have engineering freshmen meet with their faculty advisors on a regular basis in a friendly atmosphere during the beginning weeks of their academic careers in order to facilitate the development of a supportive relationship and the understanding necessary for effective communication between the two.
  2. To provide freshmen with an introduction and orientation to engineering activities and the College of Engineering during the fall semester.
  3. To help students improve study, examination, and survival skills useful in the College of Engineering.

Most of the activities in an ENGRG 150 section will focus on objective (ii), learning about engineering at Cornell, and about engineering more broadly as a profession. Through these activities, often carried out in small groups, ENGRG 150 students and instructors have an opportunity to interact and develop a mentoring relationshop with their advisees.
