College of Aeronautics (WAERO)
Fundamentals of Engineering
This course explores the topic of engineering and is appropriate for both those intending to major or specialize in engineering (or engineering sciences) and those with an interest in learning about the design process and other aspects of the engineering profession. Students will learn how to formulate, articulate, and solve problems, how to work on a conceptual design team, and how to present the results of engineering work in oral and written form. Students will also learn about the different disciplines of engineering and the multidisciplinary nature of modern engineering design.

This course is designed to give the student an understanding of the methodologies associated with the practice of engineering and the engineering techniques and methods appropriate for various situations.

Upon course completion, students will be able to (ABET performance objectives inparentheses):1. Apply engineering principles to the design and conduct of experiments.2. Understand professional and ethical responsibility.3. Utilize knowledge of basic engineering in the development of conceptual design of system elements or processes.4. Analyze aspects of existing engineering designs to identify problems and suggest solutions.5. Understand how engineering disciplines successfully interact with and support other disciplines in industry, defense and aerospace.6. Assess the impact of an engineering design process on successful program executions in aerospace and non-aerospace applications.

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.
