ENGINEERING IMPROVED QUALITY OF LIFE

Each Intro to Engineering project group was responsible for selecting a problem to Improve the Quality of Life, determining the magnitude of the problem, determining the specifications associated with a satisfactory solution, generating a set of potential alternative approaches, and selecting an approach. They were then expected to develop a prototype, test the prototype, develop a venture proposal, and present the prototype and venture proposal to the Review Board.
