Engineering the Guitar

An exciting new general education course

ENGR 1600 fulfills the interdisciplinary (ID) general education requirement at SLCC. You’ll build your own electric guitar, starting with a block of wood and a box of electronics. You’ll work with the shop equipment used in many manufacturing applications, learn wood crafting skills and utilize engineering design concepts. Additionally, you’ll be introduced to the science behind the guitar as you learn about vibrations, acoustics, the function of the human ear, music theory and much more. It’s a great way to meet the
interdisciplinary general education requirement, and you’ll take home
your very own guitar!
