ENGI 120 - Introduction to Engineering Design
ENGI 120 is a freshman-only course taught in the OEDK offered in both fall and spring. In this class students work in multi-disciplinary teams to design and build solutions to authentic real-world challenges. These projects allow Rice students to discover the importance and relevance of engineering by solving contemporary problems whose solutions benefit clients or society directly.
Since inception of the course in spring 2011, ENGI 120 teams have tackled over 100 real-world problems! This has included clients such as the Houston Zoo, several museums, Shell Oil, Wilson Elementary School (HISD), Shriners Hospital, Texas Children’s Hospital, and others. Students have developed products that have been deployed to the community.
