These ENG courses introduce freshmen to the College and to how Illinois engineers “do the impossible every day.”
ENG 100 is a required course for all engineering students and is taken in the first-year. ENG 100 begins with Launch and continues with one to two sessions per week for the first eight weeks of the semester. The purpose of the course is to introduce you to the profession of engineering, including the wide variety of fields of study and potential careers. You will also explore what it takes to be successful, both now as a student and in the future as a graduate in the profession of engineering. And you will learn important skills for exemplary leadership, professional practice, and life-long learning as an engineer.
Following the ENG 100 sessions, IEFX Electives are hands-on, cross-department courses in engineering projects, leadership, research, international opportunities, and professional skills. These courses are 11-week, 1-credit-hour elective classes that begin after ENG 100 (week 6 through end of semester).
