Professionals must effectively communicate in the technical and business environment of a company organization. The course pays particular attention to verbal communications within and between organizations, focusing on multiple audiences and their varying needs for information. Stressing audience awareness, organization, clarity and efficiency in speaking, it will improve speaking skills necessary for confident verbal presentations such as professional briefings and conferences.

ENGR 350     Nanoscience and Nanotechnology     4 Credit Hours

The terms "nanoscience" and "nanotechnology" have come to mean many different scientific and technical disciplines. The course will introduce students to the fundamentals of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Interesting phenomena about individual nanometer scale objects will be discussed. The difference in properties of objects of nanometer scale, containing hundreds or thousands of atoms and those exhibited by individual atoms or molecules or the properties of materials at the macroscale with which we are most familiar will be covered. The analytical techniques that are used to characterize these objects will be discussed. The manufacturing techniques used to make these objects along with their applications will be covered. Cost benefit analysis of nanotechnology and its future will be discussed. (YR)

ENGR 360     Des Inovtn: Proc, Meth & Prct     4 Credit Hours

Design Innovation: Process, Method and Practice is a highly interactive project-based introduction to design, structured as a hands-on course. This course brings a holistic vision to design innovation. Students work in teams that follow a process of immersion of user experiences, exploration of ideas and prototyping of potential solutions. To work effectively as a team, collaboration and project management concepts and methods are introduced. The course consists of two instructional elements: regular class lectures and in class hands-on exercises based on case studies. In addition, a semester long team based project allows students to apply classroom learnings to real life design problems. Teams present their design concepts, showcase prototypes in engaging and thoughtful ways. (F, W)
