An engineering course for freshmen is described. The course begins with a discussion of the philosophy of preliminary design and then moves to certain "macroconcepts" used in the design process: These are: economics, energy, thermodynamics, information, human factors, and optimization. An important feature of the course is a weekly three-hour design laboratory in which the principles covered in lecture are applied to realistic engineering problems.
