This course is expected to run but has not yet been scheduled.

Course Description

Are you considering a career in engineering? Are you fascinated by what engineers do?

In this free, open course, you will gain an understanding of the various fields of engineering and explore the engineering design process, from conceptual design and optimal choice evaluation to project construction and the need for engineering ethics.

This introductory course is a recommended – but not required – prerequisite for Brown’s other pre-college online Engineering courses. If you haven't completed Exploring Engineering you may still enroll in our other pre-college Engineering courses and will not be at a disadvantage.

Exploring Engineering generally is offered twice a year, in winter and in spring. If you wish to consider taking the course in the future, please sign up for program updates to be alerted of the next time the course is offered.
