ENGR3242 Quantitative Engineering Design

The engineering design process can often be completed more quickly and efficiently by applying quantitative analysis at various points. In this course, students will apply their existing skills and knowledge and learn new tools to perform quantitative analysis in the context of the design process, including techniques for validation and verification of results and communicating those results to support and effectively guide design decisions. Introductory modules will involve computation simulation tools (e.g., commercial FEA software), optimization, and system integration. In the later part of the semester, students will define and carry out the full design process, starting and ending with a user, on their own multidisciplinary projects (e.g., electromechanical system or product).
