Engineering Fundamentals courses: ENG1101, ENG1102

The First-year engineering courses are offered by the Engineering Fundamentals Department, and are required for most engineering majors.

As a prerequisite, the Spatial Visualization test must be passed prior to enrolling in  ENG 1101 or ENG 1102.  Take ENG1002 along with your first ENG course if you do not achieve a score of at least 19 on the Spat Vis test.  Transfer students with credit for ENG1101 must pass the Spatial Visualization test before enrolling in ENG1102. (or take ENG1002 prior to taking ENG1102)

Email efadvise@mtu.edu or go to the Engineering Fundamentals Department to take the spatial visualization test:  Dillman 112,   906-487-3057

ENG Courses

Objectives of Engineering Fundamentals courses:

  • To develop an appreciation for the engineering profession
  • To develop proficiency in the use of computers to solve engineering problems
  • To introduce fundamental engineering and design concepts
  • To improved technical communication skills
  • To understand ethics and it’s importance in the engineering profession

Senior Rule

While you are a senior, and if you have room in your schedule, you may take credits and reserve them for a “graduate transcript” making the credits available for possible use toward a future graduate degree. Credits taken under “Senior Rule” may not apply to your undergraduate degree.  It is up to your future graduate program whether the credits will be accepted or not.

See here for Registrar’s details and the Senior Rule Form.

Co-curricular Repeatability

New beginning Fall 2020: 0.5-credit co-curricular courses may be repeated one time for up to 1.0 unit to count toward the General Education Co-Curricular requirement. 

This means that any 0.5-unit co-curricular course on the General Education list may be used twice for General Education effective fall 2020 for all undergraduate students. 

Co-curricular courses that are 1.0 unit may still be used only once for the General Education Co-Curricular requirement; that has not changed.

We hope you continue enjoy some of those courses that get you out, moving, and trying something new!

Registration- Senior Design or ENT4950

“I am starting my final semester of capstone project work… what do I do?”

Firstly, make sure your prerequisites are complete for senior-level capstone work. The prereqs are the same for either Senior Design or Enterprise. For ENT4950, ENT3960 is also a prerequsite.

  • CpE:  EE3901 and EE3131 are pre-req; EE3173 can be taken as a co-req or pre-req with EE4901/ENT4950
  • EE:  EE3901 and EE3131 are pre-req; EE 3171 can be taken as a co-req or pre-req with EE4901/ENT4950 (if not photonics concentration)
  • RE:  EE3901 and EE3280; and (EE3261 or MEEM3750) is a required coreq or prereq for EE4901/ENT4950.

Senior Design

To schedule ECE Design Project 1 in Fall (EE 4901), register for section 0A and section L01.  Your section will be adjusted to match your team during the second week of classes, after teams are formed.

Design Project 2 is required in Spring (EE4910). Schedule section L01 and the RXX section that matches your team section number from EE4901.

Enterprise

Scheduling ENT4950 requires a slightly different process than the normal Enterprise waiver form.

Start by completing Part A, online form found under the tab “Enterprise Student Resources” (requires ISO login). Expand “Forms” and choose ‘ENT4950 Registration Forms (Electrical, Robotics and Computer Engineering)’

  1. Part A is used to verify your are “Senior Design Ready”, have met the prerequisites. Part A must be satisfactorily completed prior to completion of Part B. Emails will be sent to you from enterprisereg@mtu.edu regarding this process.
  2. Part B is used to document your project and obtain approval from your Enterprise Advisor. (try to complete by first week of classes)
  3. Once complete and approved, Judy or Liz will register you in ENT4950, 2 credits.
  4.        Late-add form is required after 1st week of classes, in addition to Part B. Late fee may apply.

Alternate Options Info

To schedule MEEM4901 (or MEEM4911), contact Ryan (ratowles@mtu.edu)  or Tricia (pmstein@mtu.edu) in MEEM204/205. Senior Design in MEEM4901 can begin in Fall or Spring. EE majors, please copy Judy when you contact the MEEM advisors; CpE majors copy Liz on that email.

Those doing their design work via European Project Semester (EPS), start here. Let the advisors know if this is an option you want to pursue so that we can help you make a plan!
