Undergraduate Students

Engineers are responsible for the ways in which people around the world communicate, work, and live. Whether they work in a lab with chemicals or behind a computer creating algorithms … whether they design airplanes or biomedical implants, engineers are focused on meeting needs and making an impact. They are always seeking quicker, better, and less expensive ways to benefit mankind.

If you like math, science, and technology, then engineering may be the perfect fit you. It offers opportunities at every level and in almost any field you can conceive … from project manager or software designer to senior information consultant or CEO.

The introductory course sequence at the University of Notre Dame offers all students considering engineering an opportunity to explore the multidisciplinary nature of engineering through hands-on design projects. The projects are team based and are constantly evolving but maintain focus on a variety of learning objectives relating to: modeling, analysis, computer programming, design, and technical communication. Past projects have included: scanner decoders, data storage systems, neutralizing waste systems, creating computer games, and launching projectiles, bridge project, pet robot, and open ended design.

The structure of the course sequence is based on both theory and practice; this is accomplished by holding 75-minute sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Stinson-Remick learning center. The concepts discussed in lecture are immediately put into practice in the learning center through an active learning experience.
