Technology Experiential Education (TECX) Courses

TECX4045 Technical Solutions Team I

In this course, students act as part of a working technology project team. During the term prior to the beginning of this course (TSTI), each student applies for a position on a particular team working on a specific project; only students accepted for such positions are admitted into the course. Students begin TSTI with a series of lectures and workshops that familiarize them with the project methods and protocols used by TSTI. They then work under the supervision of a faculty project manager and subject matter advisors. Teams submit their work for regular phase reviews; set and conform to explicit schedules for project work; monitor and assure project quality; assess and mitigate project risks; draft, update and maintain all project documentation; and are ultimately responsible for the outcome of the project. This course is one of several options in the School of Engineering & Design for students to fulfill their experiential education requirements.
