Each student will be assigned to work in a team of five to seven and responsible for evaluation of oneself and teammates. Each team will learn and prepare technical memo, reports and presentations during the course. We will also encourage interaction of students with engineering companies by inviting guest speakers and alumni to present and discuss current engineering trends and challenges in class.
