New incoming Full Time MEng Students can expect to take the following two Fall Boot Camp classes below. Each course is 90 minutes and meets everyday between August 9-18 except for weekends.:
ENGIN270A – Organizational Behavior and Negotiation for Engineers (1 unit)
Negotiation skills are critical for leaders in technology and scientific fields to have their solutions accepted and implemented. This bootcamp course is designed to provide students the opportunity to hone in on these skills by examining and engaging in case studies, surveys, and in-class exercises. Exercises may include: best/worst negotiation practices, exploring conflict attitudes, and approaches to influencing and persuading.
ENGIN270B – R&D Technology Management and Ethics (1 unit)
With the goal of preparing students to enter industry, this bootcamp course will expose students to a wide variety of managerial approaches, technologies, personalities, and business models. With a heavy emphasis on case discussions, 270B will require students to interact and contribute to discussions. Topics include technology management, Intellectual Property basics and strategy, ethics, and leadership. Cases may include: “Sheila Mason & Craig Shepherd Intellectual Property and Strategy”, “A Letter from Prison”, and “Antegren, A Beacon of Hope.”

Enrollment in Fall Semester Leadership Courses
During the fall semester, new Full Time MEng students will enroll in ENGIN295, ENGIN270C, and ENGIN296MA (see below for course descriptions). The Fung Institute will announce when students can enroll in ENGIN295 and ENGIN270C. For ENGIN296MA, Fung Staff will enroll students in a temporary section until they have been placed on a Capstone team.
ENGIN296MA – Capstone Project (2 unit)
This course is the first of a sequence of two capstone project courses for candidates of the Masters of Engineering degree. Students engage in professionally oriented independent or group research or study under the supervision of a research advisor. The research and study synthesizes the technical, environmental, economic, and social issues involved in the design and operation of complex engineering devices, systems, and organization.
ENGIN270C – Teaming & Project Management (1 unit)
In this required semester-long course, students will work on practical assignments with their Capstone teams to learn about managing their capstone deliverables and how to become a high performing team. Topics may include: effective team processes, conflict resolution, and teaming as an executive.
ENGIN295 – Communications for Engineering Leaders (1 unit)
E295 Communications for Engineering Leaders is a required year-long course. In the Fall, our objective is to develop and hone your individual communication skills. You will be able to choose kinds instructional content most useful for developing your communicative competencies. In the Spring, our objective is to develop and/or hone your team communication skills. You will enroll as a capstone team.
During the course of the year, you will investigate how you can leverage various kinds of media, rhetoric, and discourse to connect with a variety of stakeholders crucial to your success: engineers and scientists, entrepreneurs and funders, public intellectuals and trendsetters. You will find support as you become a critical reader of industry and marketing reports, a keen observer of current events, and an author of original market, industry, and IP research. You will also be inspired to develop your visual, auditory, vocal, and kinesthetic skills; to find effective ways to describe and explain your work; and to connect with your audience and your project on an emotional, social, and intellectual level. By the end of the year, you’ll be able to use a variety of communicative forms, genres, and strategies to creatively discuss your career and capstone trajectories.
