ENGR 122 - Hardware and Software
The Living WITH the Lab first year experience boosts hands-on learning through student ownership and maintenance of the “lab.” Each is provided with a robotics kit, a programmable controller, sensors, servos, and software to provide the basis for a mobile laboratory and design platform. Students are also provided with a set of tools and two software programs to allow them to work on projects independently outside of the classroom. Student-owned hardware and software broaden the spectrum of projects and design topics that can be addressed. Students are responsible for purchasing their own laptop computer.
You will need to purchase your own parts and supplies for the ENGR 122 "smart product" project.
