In this paper, we will look at how the engineering skills acquired by the students in the freshmen Foundations of Engineering I (ENGR111) course helped them in their higher level courses in the university. As ENGR111 developed skills in students that they had previously not been exposed to, it was essential to understand their effect. Students in the sophomore, junior and senior were surveyed to collect this information. Results show that the students have found the impact of these skills in their higher level courses to be positive.
