Engineering Design is taught through a discipline-specific team project. Students are taught to learn and apply professional engineering concepts and issues including sustainability, safety, estimation, materials selection, decision making, project management, information literacy, communication (graphics, written, oral), ethics, and prototyping (building). The course broadly provides an introduction to engineering as a profession.
Semester- wise, students of the course in India study the following as part of their course curriculum:
Program Elective - II
Design engineers have creative mind through rigorous inputs in technology, thinking and conceptualising abilities. Softer aspects to deal with people is also looked into and dealt with in the process. Design engineering discipline trains designer students to be sensitive to people and solve their real- time problems through a creative and analytical mind. Simple industrial design, technically complex product as well as systems design are major learning landmarks in the process. These courses teach working as individuals as well as working in a large team.
