  3. 3. The Scientific Method
  4. 4. The Scientific Method
  5. 5. Our Engineered World
  6. 6. The Engineering Method • Engineering design process is not cut‐and‐try • Be confident in design before implementation • Experiments using a variety of models
  7. 7. Learning Objectives for EG 111/112 at ND • Understand what engineering is and how it is practiced. – societal context – relationships and differences between disciplines – relationships to mathematics and the sciences • Develop and apply fundamental engineering skills. – problem solving; – communications; – computer skills. • Gain practical design experience. – as part of a multidisciplinary team
  8. 8. EG 111/112 Project Modules • Four half‐semester project modules – Introduce the project specifications and  show how the system can be decomposed. – Introduce background required to model  system behavior. – Use the engineering models to make  design decisions. – Build, test, and demonstrate the design,
  9. 9. Introduction to Engineering: Modeling and Problem Solving by Jay Brockman, published by John Wiley & Sons • Part 1:  The Engineering Mindset – 3 chapters • Part 2:  Model‐Based Design – 5 chapters • Part 3:  Engineering Modeling with  MATLAB – 4 chapters originally developed as support site  for book, but the author and publisher have decided to  open it to the community
