Engineering Programs

Thursday, April 7, 5:45pm - 7:30pm
Agile Processes This course will address what agile methods are, how they are different from traditional methods, how they are implemented in a pragmatic way and their impact on product development, software engineering, and outside of information technology. Different methods will be covered, but the focus will be on Scrum, Kanban, and Lean.

(Part of our MSIS, MEM, MSE, and MEng curricula)


Tuesday, April 12, 5:45pm - 7:30pm
Ethics & Values This course will examine the ethical issues within science and engineering from a problem solving perspective. Fundamental concepts of preventive ethics are considered, as well as professional responsibility within the technical community. 

(Part of our MSIS, MEM, and MEng curricula)


Wednesday, April 13, 5:45pm - 7:30pm
Creativity & Problem Solving II This course builds on an understanding of the individual problem solver to address the dynamics of group problem solving, with a particular focus on building and facilitating effective engineering teams. At the core of the material is the concept of cognitive gap, i.e., the differences in cognitive characteristics that exist between problem solvers (both individuals and groups) and between problem solvers and the problems they must solve.

(Part of our MSIS, MEM, MSE, MEng)
