490 Human Practice of Engineering Design (3:3:0) Prerequisites: senior standing (at least 90 credits) in an IT&E degree program; one of SYST 301, ECE 331, or CS 421; and permission of instructor. Study of engineering design and innovation emphasizing human aspects. Students directly involved in a project with a client for whom they must produce a measurable innovation supported by an engineering system. Students prepare through extensive readings and exercises, from which they will learn how to identify and listen for human concerns, action, breakdowns, and coordination.
498 Independent Study in Engineering (1-3:3:0) Prerequisite: 60 credits; must be arranged with instructor and approved by department chair before registering. Directed self-study of special topics of current interest in ENGR. May be repeated for maximum 6 credits if topics are substantially different.
499 Special Topics in Engineering (3:3:0) Prerequisites: 60 credits and permission of instructor; specific prerequisites vary with nature of topic. Topics of special interest to undergraduates. May be repeated for maximum 6 credits if topics are substantially different.
