Course description and aims

This course aims to become a bridge between general education at high school and specialized education in the subjects of No.200 or higher. This course also aims to cultivate not only basic knowledge of engineering but also sense and attitude for problem solving so that the freshmen of School of Engineering can learn actively specialized subjects after sophomore.
By taking all Engineering literacy I-IV, the students experience the following all seven subjects in Engineering Literacy.
【Manufacturing process 】
【Mechanical Design (Steamship)】
【Mechanical Design (CAD)】
【Wireless electric car with microcomputer】
【Communication, Computation, and Intelligent Information Processing】
【Management Technology (Industrial Engineering and Economics)】

Student learning outcomes

By completing this course, students will be able to:
【Wireless electric car with microcomputer】
1) control a microcomputer (Arduino) with programming.
2) fabricate electric circuits and perform wireless communication.
3) obtain the basic knowledge on Electrical and Electronic Engineering


【Wireless electric car with microcomputer】
Microcomputer programming, Electric circuit, Wireless communication, Internet delivery lectures

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

【Wireless electric car with microcomputer】
In this course, the fabrication of electric circuits and programming which are necessary for the wireless electric car are carried out in each class, and finally, the race is performed using the fabricated cars. Furthermore, internet delivery lectures with related quizzes are taken.
