The students will learn about the potential of ICE (Integrated Collaborative Engineering) to support integrated systems engineering. To this end, students will be confronted with a design challenge for a complex civil engineered product that they have to solve through intensive collaborative group work. In this way, this hands-on project based module will provide students with the possibility to experience collaborative engineering design in a simulated practical environment. Students will understand the real difficulties in model integration and learn techniques to overcome these problems through collaboration and concurrent work. An important focus of the course is to teach students how to visualize engineering ideas in detail within media rich interdisciplinary work spaces (the class will be taught within the civil system group's ICE room).
