The Engineering Design Division (EDD) First-year Engineering Program is dedicated
to providing outstanding educational opportunities for engineering first-year students
to prepare them for entry into one of the engineering disciplines offered in The Watson
The program strives to provide first-year engineering students with a solid foundation
of core engineering, oral and written communication, teamwork, and research skills.
It accomplishes this by providing exciting design projects, a stimulating laboratory
experience, and informative lectures presented by Watson School faculty and engineers
from local industry.
A core value of our program is frequent interaction between students and faculty to
help students make a successful transition from high school to their chosen career.
