Junior Design Project and the Engineering Profession
Course Description: The fundamental mission of engineering is design. Students, working in teams, learn the fundamentals of developing a specific problem statement, flowcharting, researching, project management, and design actualization, incorporating appropriate engineering standards and multiple realistic constraints.

The student is challenged to consider the work of the engineer in the broader context of societal, personal, and professional responsibility.
