Cumulative Course Portfolio
Calendar of Events (OCEs)
Throughout the semester, students will build an electronic portfolio of their engineering
course work and attend campus events related to important engineering skills. Additionally,
students must maintain an Excel spreadsheet based on the course syllabus that tracks
their performance in class. Towards the conclusion of the semester, students will
write a reflection essay on their cumulative experiences in and out of the classroom,
and at the end of the semester submit their final electronic portfolio through
their MIX account’s Google Drive.
While the Fundamentals of Engineering Program will announce Department Visitations and other out-of-class events, it is recommended that students actively seek out engineering programs and events on their own.
To receive credit for an event, students must bring an out-of-class event form with them to the event, fill out the form, and submit it to their instructor on the assigned due date.
Academic Enrichment is open to all Fundamentals of Engineering students, but are required for those students taking ENGR 100, 101, 102, or 191.
