Introduction to Engineering Design
ENGI 120-220/FWIS 188
First year students with Spring '22 FWIS requirement: join us at the FWIS Fair on Wednesday, 11/3 from 2:30 - 5:00 pm
ENGI 120-220/FWIS 188 is an introductory course taught face-to-face 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 more than 200 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 many others. Students have developed products that have been deployed to the community.
The course content of ENGI 120-220/FWIS 188 sections is identical. ENGI 120-220 does not fulfill the FWIS requirement or carry D3 credit. This spring, the three credit hour course will be offered T/TH 10:50 am and 1:00 pm. Max enrollment per section on ENGI 120 -220 is 25 students, and for FWIS 188 is 16 students.
