Occasionally, co-curricular and academic activities are integrated into thematic elective courses. These programs are focused on engineering challenges for the 21st century and are developed in response to the specific needs and interests of first year students. These unique courses expose CoRe students to issues at the leading edge of engineering research and practice.
Cultures of Creativity is a special, integrative two-course sequence for Engineering and RCAH students that starts with a dynamic freshman seminar away in Detroit, Michigan July 20-27, 2013. The focus of this sequence will be on the way that professionals from technical and artistic backgrounds work together to achieve creative solutions to real-world problems in both the corporate and community-based settings. Engineering and RCAH students will be automatically enrolled in a special section of EGR 100 or RCAH 395 during Fall semester. Engineering students will enroll in a specific section of EGR100 (2 credits), a required course for all engineering freshman. Students enrolled in the EGR 100 and RCAH 395 linked courses will meet jointly several times during the fall semester to work collaboratively on community-based projects that require creative solutions. A major goal of the class will be for students from artistic and technical backgrounds to work together.
