Press Tab to Move to Skip to Content Link Explore Engineering Innovation Teaching Assistant Explore Engineering Innovation is based on an introductory engineering course taught to undeclared freshmen engineering students at JHU. EEI covers a range of fundamental engineering topics including materials science, computer science, civil, mechanical, and chemical engineering. The course includes lectures but focuses on hands-on lab experiments and group data analysis. Graded coursework includes lab reports, homework assignments, a group presentation, and a design project. At the end of the course, students who earn an A or B receive JHU credit for the course. Ultimately, the goal of the course is to expose students to engineering principles, allow them to apply the math and science they learn in high school to solving real world problems, and to help students develop critical thinking skills. Each class of EEI consists of 16-24 students with diverse academic backgrounds. Each class is team-taught by a PhD-level engineer and a high school teacher who teaches a STEM discipline.
