A Sophomore level Introduction to Engineering Design Course
Iowa State University has a sophomore level course that is known as ABE 218. The objectives of this course include learning a structured approach to engineering design, preparing the students for internships, learning the basics of project management, and connecting the theoretical engineering paper designs to physical reality. This informal paper discusses how the course is structured, identifies the lab projects that are part of the course, and discusses some of the results and challenges associated with ABE 218.
