When planning classes to take this coming year, please consider the Winter Quarter course:
This course is open to all undergraduate and graduate students including ME, PD, BME, CS, EE, HumBio, and STS.
You should take this course if:
Perspectives in Assistive Technology (ENGR110/210) is a Winter Quarter course for students from every discipline that explores issues surrounding the design and use of technology that benefits people with disabilities and seniors.
The course consists of twice-weekly in-class discussions, presentations by guest lecturers, and tours of local medical facilities and engineering labs.
Students pursue projects that address problems faced by users of assistive technology. For students whose schedule does not permit working on a project, lecture-only options are offered.
Students can continue working on projects into the Spring Quarter - engaging in prototyping, fabrication, user testing, and iterative design for credit as an independent study or senior design project.
ENGR110 is a certified Service Learning course that satisfies the optional course requirement for the BSME degree and is newly approved for the Program in Science, Technology & Society.
The course objectives are to:
The teaching staff invites undergraduate and graduate students from all majors and backgrounds to enroll in Axess and attend the first class session in the Winter Quarter of 2012.
