Course Description

Formerly CPSC 1090

Amongst the many skills required of engineers is the ability to clearly communicate their designs and engineering analyses using both verbal and graphical languages. In this project-based course, students explore the engineering design process and develop their ability to use engineering communication tools. Working in teams, they examine the technical background of a well-defined problem and use engineering drawing and CAD to design potential solutions. Through this process, students experience professional responsibility and develop their writing and presentation skills.

Students will receive credit for only one of CPSC 1090 or 1091.

Priority registration in this course is offered to students admitted to the Diploma in Applied Science for Engineering and the Certificate in Arts and Science (Engineering).

Prerequisite(s): One of the following: a minimum "B" grade in Precalculus 12 (or equivalent), a minimum "C+" grade in Precalculus 12 (or equivalent) and a minimum "C-" grade in Calculus 12, a minimum "C+" grade in MATH 1170, or a minimum 90 on the Mathematics Diagnostic Test; and a minimum "B" grade in Physics 12, or a minimum "B-" grade in PHYS 1118. Prerequisites are valid for only three years.
