ERT 461/3 BIOSYSTEMS ENGINEERING DESIGN I
Biosystems Engineering Design is a 2 part course covering aspects of engineering design related to open-ended design projects at professional level engineering design task in biosystems engineering field. The design project is a team-based approach to provide capstone design experience emphasizing on the application of sciences, mathematics and engineering science acquired in earlier course work in design of projects. The scope of the course covers the knowledge on the elements in project formulation, planning/scheduling, management and communication, engineering economics including cost-benefits analysis and budgeting, critical thinking, ethics and safety in engineering design, fundamental in engineering design methodology (the process and tools) and systems engineering. Analysis of case studies pertaining to engineering issues in design.
Ability to differentiate between ethical and legal issues and relate how these are related to design projects in biosystems engineering field.
Ability to demonstrate team work through group weekly meetings, project planning and management, analysis of case studies and class presentation.
Ability to analyze and assess the impact of design and engineering solutions on society and environment.
Ability to evaluate economic and feasibility study of a design project in biosystems engineering.
Ability to compose engineering problems and alternative solutions and formulate a sound proposal in biosystems engineering project using systematic design process.
