EGR-Engineering Courses

Courses

EGR 102. Engineering LLC Seminar. 0 Hours.

The Engineering Living Learning Community (LLC) is designed to strengthen students' first year of college while fostering a sense of community. The living-learning community extends learning from the classroom into the residence hall where students participate in structured programs built around academics, common interests, and shared goals. This program will provide scholars with a solid foundation for the successful completion of an engineering degree. Programming within the LLC is a partnership between the Office of Student Housing and Residence Life and the UAB School of Engineering.

Introduces students to research methodology, ethics, data analysis, and technical communication. Students must be invited into program in order to enroll.
Prerequisites: (MA 227 [Min Grade: C] or EGR 265 [Min Grade: C])

EGR 317. Engineering Innovation III: Project Lab. 3 Hours.

Student teams engineer devices based on client needs. The project team will collaborate with the client to establish an appropriate engineering design to meet user needs. Students are trained in product development, product design, engineering validation and will develop training and documentation market analysis, business plan and a go-to-market strategy as appropriate for the project.
Prerequisites: EGR 217 [Min Grade: C] and (EGR 265 [Min Grade: C] or MA 227 [Min Grade: C]) and CE 210 [Min Grade: C]

EGR 481. Interdisciplinary Project Lab. 3 Hours.

Multidisciplinary student teams (engineering, business, arts) engineer devices based on client needs. The project team will collaborate with the client to establish an appropriate engineering design to meet user needs. Students are trained in product development, product design, engineering validation and will develop training and documentation market analysis, business plan and a go-to-market strategy as appropriate for the project.
Prerequisites: (ME 102 [Min Grade: C] and CE 210 [Min Grade: C] and EE 312 [Min Grade: C]) or CE 360 [Min Grade: C] or (EE 337 [Min Grade: D] and EE 351 [Min Grade: D]) or (ME 322 [Min Grade: C] and ME 371 [Min Grade: C]) or MSE 281 [Min Grade: D]
