This (1) credit course is a seminar/workshop-style offering to prepare students for EAS 494 Interdisciplinary Capstone Senior Design. The EAS 493/494 sequence provides students from two or more SEAS departments the opportunity to solve an interdisciplinary problem. In order for students to work effectively on their projects, they will be introduced to basic project management / systems engineering perspectives and methods. The EAS 493 Seminar will not replace departmental design seminar equivalent courses ¿ students are expected to take this seminar in addition to those required courses as a co-requisite. Rather, this course will ensure that students are fully functioning project teams for the EAS 494 portion of the sequence in the Spring semester.
