The First-Year Engineering Learning Center provides a broad range of services to students enrolled in first-year engineering courses. The center is divided into a Design Center (Dillman 207) for project support, and a Course Support Center (Dillman 209) for assistance with day-to-day course homework and concepts.
The Design Center offers lab areas dedicated to wet construction/testing and general construction/testing, where students have access to basic tools and workbenches. The center’s meeting space, equipped with five computer workstations and a printer, is large enough to accommodate student teams. Students in ENG1001 and ENG1101 have used the center to construct and test bench-scale wind turbines and small-scale aquaculture aeration systems.
Students can receive assistance with course homework and concepts at the Course Support Center. The center is staffed by knowledgeable Undergraduate Teaching Assistants, who work directly with first-year students, and an engineering graduate student supervisor. Outside of the Learning Center’s hours, Dillman 208 is available to engineering students for computer lab use and to engineering classes scheduled between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
