EDGE: Engineering Design Guide and Environment


Table of Contents


Welcome to the EDGE site.

EDGE -- The Engineering Design Guide and Environment -- is an open source integrated design environment to foster collaboration within design project teams, and across design teams working on families of closely related projects. Through this site, we hope to provide students, faculty, staff, and sponsors with tools and information to help them be successful in their design projects, and to learn about modern design and product development processes.

Information for Developers

The EDGE site is a way to facilitate the activities of the RIT Multidisciplinary Senior Design program (including all of its underlying courses). It should be an asset to all of the participants in the program, including faculty, students, sponsors, and interested third-parties. EDGE is a nascent open source project. If you are interested in joining the development team, please contact Dr. Hensel (echeme*nospam*@rit.edu).
