Decisions Under Risk and Uncertainty Project Course

Course

Description

Many complex issues in engineering involve decision making under risk and uncertainty, whether by managers, technology users, or engineers themselves. In this challenge-based learning course, students work toward an acceptable technical solution to a problem originating from real-life stakeholders, first encountered in previous courses in the sequence. Examples include resolving managers’ questions about the safety of an innovative process chemical installation, designing a contact-tracing software application that is compatible with privacy, and choosing a strategy for designing automobile traffic flows in the Eindhoven region. Using technical knowledge from the specialized course, students benchmark possible technical solutions for acceptability and develop solutions that are acceptable to relevant stakeholders. They communicate the proposed solution(s) to a stakeholder in a presentation at the end of the course.
