Technology Experiential Education (TECX) Courses

TECX4020 Technology Solo Project

This course allows each student to design, build, implement, or research an actual technology project related to his or her degree program. Under the supervison of a faculty advisor, each student selects an appropriate project (often from a list of project requests submitted to the School of Engineering & Design), sets a completion schedule, reports on project progress, and finally writes an extensive final report on the results of the project. Students defend their work and report in an oral presentation before a faculty panel.

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.
Prerequisite(s): PRMG2010.
