Course Summary

This course will introduce students to the engineering profession, the entrepreneurial mindset, and the study skills necessary to succeed in the rigorous course of study to achieve an engineering degree. The course introduces fundamental engineering concepts, including spreadsheets, dimensions and units, engineering communication, engineering ethics, and the engineering design process. This is a required course for online engineering majors and also serves non-engineering students by exposing them to an overview of the engineering discipline.

For information regarding the prerequisites for this course, please refer to the Academic Course Catalog.

Rationale

The degree programs at Liberty University are designed to develop Christ-centered men and women with the values, knowledge, and skills essential to positively influence their chosen profession in the current and evolving world.  These programs prepare graduates for the thoughtful integration of work and life and to view their profession as a lifelong commitment to serving others.  Within a few years of graduating, graduates will be able to advance in their professional careers or graduate studies, be recognized as critical and creative thinkers exhibiting an aptitude for continuous learning, and display professional ethics and behavior consistent with foundational Christian principles.  To that end, the objective of this course is to introduce students to the engineering professions and prepare them for success in achieving a degree in one of those fields.

Measurable Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this course the student will be able to:

  1. Clearly articulate what an engineer is and what inspires them to pursue this profession (SOs: 1, 3, 4, 5, & 7).
  2. Apply an entrepreneurial mindset that considers curiosity, connections, and creating value (SOs: 2, 3, 4, 5, & 7).
  3. Put into practice positive academic strategies/productive behaviors necessary for academic success (SOs: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, & 7)
  4. Articulate how their personalities and learning styles influence their educational experience and their participation as members of teams (SOs: 1, 3, 4, & 7).
  5. Demonstrate the importance of cultivating intellectual dispositions that are essential to the excellence of thought and sound engineering reasoning (SOs: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, & 7).
  6. Apply a Christian Worldview to engineering challenges in group exercises and team projects (SOs: 3, 4, 5, & 7).

Course Assignment

Course Requirements Checklist

After reading the Course Syllabus and Student Expectations, the student will complete the related checklist found in the Course Overview.

Discussions (7)

Discussions are collaborative learning experiences. Therefore, the student is required to create a thread in response to the provided promptly for each forum. Each thread must be at least 250 words, providing citations as appropriate. In addition to the thread, you are required to reply to the threads o at least two classmates. Each reply must be at least 125 words.

Quizzes (Reading Assessments) (7)

These Reading Assessments measure the student’s preparation for engaging in the new course material.  These are conducted online before the module/week when the subject will be discussed and are administered in a Quiz format.

Problem Set Assignments (6)

Problem Sets (PS) measures the student’s application of course material after the subject matter has been presented in class. These are conducted in WebAssign and require applied critical thinking as well as subject matter comprehension.

Case Study: Ethics Assignment

Case Studies (CS) also measure the student’s application of course material, but in a reflective writing format. Case Studies will include the integration of biblical worldview with an understanding of course concepts.

Project Assignments (2)

There will be two projects in this course, one individual project and one team project:

  • Individual Project: Design Your Plan (DYOP) Assignment: The student will develop a personal plan that maps out their path to completing their degree program. This project will include the integration of biblical worldview to the maximum extent possible, as well as focus on the attitudes, habits, and behaviors necessary to become a master student and life-long learner.  This project will be completed in stages, with four writing assignments and the creation of a graduation plan in spreadsheet format.
  • Team Project: New Product Proposal (NPP) Assignment: The student will participate in a team project that creates a proposal for developing a new product, implementing the engineering design process and an entrepreneurial mindset. This project will also be completed in stages, with the final deliverable in poster format during the final week of class.
