APSC-100 is a Queen's University[1] course developed to encourage a sense of curiosity about engineering work, and to develop professional skills used by engineers. The Design Module (Module 1) is designed around open-ended design problems that complement the science and mathematics content of other courses. It also introduces multidisciplinary problems. Module 1 focuses on five fundamental engineering skills:

  • design and creativity
  • project management
  • information management
  • teamwork
  • communications

This course is primarily student-directed. As such, each student team has the opportunity to learn independently and apply creativity to solve the design problem. Because the project is student-directed, the skills and knowledge you learn will be directly related to the effort you put into it. Occasionally students have complained that they did not learn anything from the project; you can ensure that this doesn't happen to you by using the resources provided to develop the five fundamental skills.
