Curriculum - EPOM 403
Product/Process Design & Implementation

EPOM 403 and EPOM 409 form a two semester design sequence. In EPOM 403 lectures, class discussions, group projects, and carefully orchestrated exercises concentrate on engineering processes, design, prototyping, development, and analysis that can be applied in all aspects of engineering. Topics such as safety, ethics, intellectual property, product liability, environmental issues, and public policy are considered in relation to the design experience. The second part of this sequence is a program capstone activity that uses a multidisciplinary team project to develop the skills needed to define a market opportunity, identify design objectives, select from among available concepts, and implement production all within the context of an open-ended business opportunity within "virtual" company.

Sample examples of projects include:

  • A cardiac rehabilitation exercise device with remote monitoring and control developed for a bicycle company
  • An automatic pill dispensing and monitoring device developed for a pharmaceutical company.
