EPICS 151 - 2017
EPICS 151 classes meet three times per week for a total of five hours. Each class consists of 25 students and an experienced mentor. All teams in EPICS 151 work on the same project for the entire course. In addition, two instructors lead graphics courses and hand-sketching practice as well as computer-aided drawing (SolidWorks).
Students typically work in teams of four to five members to learn and practice the fundamental skills of engineering through the use of a guided design methodology, as applied to an engineering problem with real-world implications. Mentors deliver explicit instruction or information in selected topics, such as decision making, team dynamics, communications, along with specifications for course assignments. Mentors also guide teams through the design process by providing information where needed, mediating team member issues, encouraging creative thought and logical development of design solutions that are grounded in established scientific principles and intended to meet the needs of an external client.
