PD21: Engineering Workplace Skills II: Developing Effective Plans introduces students to the engineering design process, a framework they can use to solve problems and satisfy stakeholders in their workplaces. How do you make sure your project fulfills all of your client’s needs? How do you choose between a handful of viable solutions? Can you create a compelling presentation that convinces everyone you’ve finished the job? Students who take PD21 can answer all of these questions with confidence upon finishing the course.
What do PD21 students do?
- Use project management skills to create work breakdown and linear responsibility charts
- Select valid decision criteria for a decision matrix
- Use morphological analysis to develop a feasible prototype
- "Great, relevant, up-to-date content with relevant examples and assignment problems."
- "I learned how to critically analyze problems and break down large engineering problems into smaller, manageable subtasks."
Students need to earn a grade of 60% to pass PD21.
