In the success-oriented environment of engage™, students learn by interacting with others to create solutions to engineering problems. The following topics are covered in nine credit hours of common first-year courses.
An introduction to the different engineering majors offered at UT.
Computer tools in problem-solving
The use of Excel and Matlab to solve engineering problems. Learn more about Engineering Fundamentals 105.
Because learning to be an effective team member can be just as difficult as learning the physical laws and computational tools of engineering, students are trained in the ways of the collaborative team process.
Students’s communication skills are honed through written project reports and oral presentations.
Physics as an Engineering Fundamental
Topics covered include mechanics, fluids, waves, sound, thermodynamics, and electricity. Learn more about Engineering Fundamentals 151 and Engineering Fundamentals 152.
