Applied Engineering Immersion Semester (Accelerated)

Credits: 3

The Applied Engineering Immersion Semester is an interdisciplinary course for Sophomores and Juniors interested in concentrated study within the disciplines of computer science, engineering, science modeling, and media studies. This program draws on the resources of the Sweeney Applied Engineering Center and the Emerging Technologies Laboratory to support collaborative design work toward authentic purposes. The physical sciences will serve as the focus for developing skills in programming, 3D modeling, interaction design, and media studies. As part of the program, students will begin a professional design portfolio and learn leadership skills in project management and personal networking. Students may complete their second core science requirement as part of the experience, and earn additional credits for Accelerated coursework in engineering, computer science, and media studies. This course serves as a prerequisite for upper level work in the engineering and computer science programs.
