ENGR 100, Section 520: Engineering Wellness (fall) (2023 – present)

Course Website

Course Profile (ATLAS)

Engineering 100 (ENGR100) serves as a first-year student’s introduction to engineering. This BME-based version of the course is focused on wellness, allowing students to explore research and technologies that support both psychological health and physical health. By working with a commercial, wearable biosensor, students develop hands-on skills in engineering design and technical communications.

This novel course has been designed and developed by our team of wellness instructors (Dr.’s Fatima Albrehi, Robin Fowler, Karin Jensen, and graduate student Eileen Johnson).

EER 602: Theoretical and Coneptual Frameworks for Engineering Education Research (winter) (2024 – present)

Course Profile (ATLAS)

This course offers an in-depth examination of theories from education, psychology, and other disciplines that are relevant to EER. Learning focuses on how the theories apply to EER, how they can guide research, and how they advance knowledge and practice.
