Fundamentals of Engineering – Honors (FEH)

The Fundamentals of Engineering for Honors (FEH) Program is an optional course sequence that is offered to University Honors-designated engineering students. This accelerated program is designed to provide students with a foundation in engineering principles that are necessary for success throughout their academic careers.

The FEH Program offers a valuable first-year engineering experience because:

  • Students begin taking engineering courses immediately in the fall semester.
  • FEH projects and laboratories facilitate teamwork, which employers favor in prospective employees.
  • Accelerated classes and increased workload require and develop study skills as well as time management.
  • Students gain documentation, presentation, and communication skills (through written reports and oral presentations), which are invaluable assets when looking for a job or internship.

Any student who is interested in applying to the Honors Program must complete an Honors and Scholars Application. For more information about FE Honors (FEH) or to speak with an Honors Advisor, please call (614) 292–7923.

Academic advisers are available to direct students towards the courses that are best-suited to their needs.

FE – Honors Course Sequence

FIRST SEMESTER COURSE OPTIONS:

Engineering 1281.01H  Fundamentals of Engineering for Honors I (Regular)

This course introduces undergraduate students to engineering problem-solving using computational tools such as Excel and MATLAB. Students are taught how to develop algorithms and are introduced to the C/C++ programming languages. The semester culminates in a software design project that tests the skills that students have learned throughout the course.

Engineering 1281.02H  Fundamentals of Engineering for Honors I (Advanced)

Designed for undergraduate students that already possess knowledge of computer programming, this course provides more accelerated study and more challenging work. The course introduces students to engineering problem-solving using computational tools such as Excel and MATLAB. Students enrolled in Engineering 1281.02H also develop algorithms and become more familiar with the C/C++ programming languages. The semester culminates in a software design project that tests the skills that students have learned throughout the course. 

 

SECOND SEMESTER COURSE OPTIONS:

Engineering 1282.01H – Fundamentals of Engineering for Honors II (Robot Design and Build Project)

This course introduces students to 3D visualization and computer-aided design processes. Students learn how to communicate design ideas through graphics. Throughout the robotics design-build project, students work in teams to produce a small autonomous robot that is capable of performing several tasks. The project culminates in a showcase where the teams demonstrate their robots' capabilities.

Engineering 1282.02H – Fundamentals of Engineering for Honors II (Nanotechnology and Sustainability Design Research Project)

This course introduces students to 3D visualization and computer-aided design processes. Students learn how to communicate design ideas through graphics. Throughout the research and development project, student teams will research technologies within a given opportunity space of nanotechnology or sustainability.  Students will develop a model or prototype of their solution and present their design at a final showcase. 

Engineering 1282.04H – Fundamentals of Engineering for Honors IV (Integrated Business and Engineering) IBE Students only

This course focuses on a design project that is completed by the engineering and business students in the IBE cohort. The design project focuses on user needs and design thinking. This is available for students who participated in the IBE cohort in AU 2022.
