TE 401 Textile Engineering Design I UNITS: 4 Prerequisite: TE 302

The design process including initial specification, design constraints, sources of information and design strategy. Development of fact-finding ability in areas unfamiliar to the student. Analysis of existing designs and the development of improved or new designs.

You will learn to write effectively on teams, develop a state-of-the-art technology report for your project idea, learn strategies to “sell your idea”, and present an original engineering design concept. The course will continue into the following semester (TE402) where you will develop a proof-of-concept prototype.

The past two years have focused on engineering projects for people with disabilities.
