This is an individual assignment. Reflect on your experiences and understanding of engineering design, and respond to the following questions:
In your own words, what is engineering design?
How does “engineering design” differ from other design fields?
Provide evidence to support your viewpoints. What is an engineering design process?
Be specific about the process or the steps. Give concrete examples of how you, and/or your team, followed an engineering design process in the past. This could be from a course or in your work experience. What did you learn from that experience? How do you think intellectual property (IP) concerns will affect your capstone project? How might IP impact your career in engineering? Your document should be single spaced, Times New Roman, Arial or Calibri, 10 or 12 point font, 700-1000 words. The assignment grading will be based on the substance of your reflection, and the professionalism of your writing.
