General Engineering Courses
Engineering Student Success Seminar is a zero credit course that supports engineering students who are enrolled in college algebra or plane trigonometry. Students will identify potential barriers to student success and gain access to related campus resources. This course will also assist students in developing effective academic skills including, but not limited to the following: time management, organization, learning styles, effective communication, academic planning and goal setting. This course will be reserved for first-semester general engineering students in fall, and open to students in the College of Engineering in spring.
Engineering Orientation is a one credit hour, seminar-style course aimed at providing first year students with an overview of all of the degree programs within the College of Engineering at K-State. DEN 160 also serves as an orientation course through helping students consider study skills, time management, and important campus resources and opportunities. This course is only offered in the fall and all students in general engineering participate.
Engineering Problem Solving is a one credit hour, lab-style course intended to complement DEN 160 for all first-year general engineering students who are enrolled in MATH 220 or higher. Here, students gain hands-on experiences with engineering problem solving. In addition to small projects from various engineering disciplines, there is also time spent working on the problem solving skills and practices that cross-cut all engineering disciplines. Students gain experience working in an engineering design team. This course is offered in both fall and spring.
