College of Aeronautics (WAERO)
Introduction to Engineering
This course is an introduction to the interdisciplinary aspects of the engineering of aerospace systems. It is a project-based course, demonstrating how the engineering profession is a multi-disciplinary field. Students are involved in an array of conceptual exercises, simple design activities, and projects dealingwith engineering in aerospace-related areas.

This course is designed to encourage students to have active participation in engineering design experiences, instill a sense of appreciation for the creative aspects of engineering. Students engage in discussions relating to historical perspective of engineering, the nterdisciplinary aspects of modern engineering and ethical values through practice and/or ase studies. Students will develop communication skills through documentation and oral presentations.

1. Students should demonstrate the skills to continually develop good study and time management habits.2. Students should be able to demonstrate experience with the interdisciplinary aspect of engineering.3. Students should demonstrate technical written and oral communication skills.4. Students should demonstrate knowledge of engineering ethics and professionalism.5. Students should be able to demonstrate knowledge and experience with the design process.6. Students should be able to assess and develop their teamwork skills.

Upon course completion, students will be able to:7. Demonstrate knowledge of the historical basis and modern need for standards/certification bodies.8. Subdivide a project into manageable elements and then organize those elements into a final deliverable.9. Describe modern methods for evaluating end-result appropriateness versus customer requirements.10. Demonstrate appropriate selection and application of a research method and statistical analysis (where required), specific to the course subject matter.

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
