These seminars are coordinated with the requirements of Engr. 294/394 in mind. See description below. While it may be geared for students currently in the engineering program, the Calvin Community and general public are always welcome to attend.
Engineering 294/394 (0 credit) A series of seminars devoted to an exploration of topics in engineering. Seminars will cover areas such as the practice of engineering design, non-technical issues in engineering practice, engineering graduate studies, and aspects of engineering analysis. Students will receive transcript recognition for Engineering 294 if they attend eight (8) seminars before being admitted to a BSE concentration and will receive transcript recognition for Engineering 394 if they attend eight (8) seminars after being admitted toa BSE concentration. Plant tours and technical society meetings may be substituted for seminars upon approval.
Students wishing to use a seminar from another department at Calvin must get approval in advance from Prof. Hoeksema. The subject must have some relevancy to engineering in order to be considered. Typical requirement is to have submit a written summary of a seminar sponsored by another department.
- Students need both 294 & 394 credit to graduate from the engineering program. They are required courses.
