EGMT 230 Introduction to Global Engineering 2.0 Credits

This course introduces the student to a broad range of contemporary issues (economic, political and cultural) that engineers face in meeting the challenges of globalization. This is a discussion focused course and is intended to expose the engineers to concepts and challenges facing today’s global engineers. Topics include understanding globalization, communicating across cultures, peace engineering, and developmental engineering. Students in this course will also be asked what it means to be an engineer today and to understand their role and potential for impact. The course will feature guest speakers and students will engage in various case study analysis.

EGMT 340 Introduction to the Orbital Perspective 3.0 Credits

Living on the International Space Station is a powerful, transformative experience that can change one’s views on our planet and the problems we collectively face. Based upon Astronaut Ron Garan’s experiences in space, this course focuses on the importance and possibilities of global collaboration and innovation in creating a better world. Students will learn what it is like to work with a diverse group of people in an environment only a handful of human beings have ever known. Students will also learn to apply the orbital perspective here at home, embracing new partnerships and processes to promote peace and combat hunger, thirst, poverty, and environmental destruction. This course is a call to action for each of us to care for the most important space station of all: planet Earth.

EGMT 404 [WI] Introduction to Engineering Management Communications 3.0 Credits

Excellence in design is as important to managerial communications as it is for any engineering endeavor. By applying this concept to the challenges that new engineering managers face, the course encourages engineers to aspire to professional competence in writing and speaking as they prepare for management. This helps them in both marketing their job skills and publishing and promoting innovative ideas and solutions. Students learn the rhetoric of managerial communication to affect workplace behavior on multiple levels, effect profitable technological and business outcomes, and promote the success of new products and systems. The basic skills of composition and grammar are also stressed: developing and organizing content, building effective reporting formats, and editing to achieve style and correctness.
