25 Scopus citations


The feasibility of implementing freshman design courses for solving real problems is discussed. Freshman design courses were found to be problematic because students do not yet have the fundamental engineering background necessary to solve the real problems. The students use the same design process to work that span a range of problems and disciplines. All the communication that students practise and produce in the course are key elements in the design process.
