Engineering Exploration is a first-year course, and it is a PBL approach (Project Based Learning). In this course, students are given a need statement from that they have to carve out a problem definition and with the help of this problem definition students have to develop the prototype by following the Engineering Design process. Agile as a project management methodology- in particular Scrum is used to develop the prototype. Musical bot is one of the need statements in this course. The purpose of this need statement is to economically automate the musical instruments so that it can be played by all age groups anytime without the need for the musician.
