Although almost everyone uses spatial visualization on a daily basis, certain careers prioritize this skill. Engineers are possibly one of the most notable examples of professionals who use spatial visualization every day. This course will focus on developing students’ spatial visualization skills through a combination of in-person and online modules, reflections, and fun activities.
Well-developed spatial visualization skills have been shown to be excellent predictors of success in STEM fields. Additional research has shown that spatial visualization skills can be dramatically improved with dedicated training and practice. This course provides a structured opportunity for students to engage in improving the visualization skills that will be helpful throughout their engineering careers.
