Engineering
3.0 credits ENGR-112: Introduction to Engineering
An introduction to engineering as a career. Issues important to engineers, as students and professionals, are discussed along with answers to the question, "What can I expect to do as an engineer?" In addition, basic computer skills and electronic data acquisition are introduced in a laboratory setting, emphasizing a hands-on approach to experimentation and team design.
Prerequisites: TAKE MATH-115
Corequisites: ENGL-111
Offered: FASP
3.0 credits ENGR-230: Engineering Circuit Analysis
Introductory engineering analysis of analog circuits. Topics include electrical component descriptions and equations (resistors, inductors, and capacitors), Kirchhoff's voltage and current laws, and calculus based formulation of network equations using time and frequency domain concepts.
Prerequisites: Take MATH-189.
Offered: FALL
3.0 credits ENGR-233: Mechanics-Statics
An introduction to basic engineering structural analysis of static (stationary) objects. Methods to examine external and internal forces on structural components are developed using vector methods.
Prerequisites: Take MATH-189 and PHYS-215.
Offered: FALL
3.0 credits ENGR-234: Mechanics-Dynamics
Expand your knowledge of statics to the study of systems in motion. Dynamics is divided into two parts: "kinematics" examines the geometric aspect of motion (where does it go?), and "kinetics" covers forces involved in motion (how should I design it?). Vector analysis methods are used throughout.
Prerequisites: Take MATH-189 and ENGR-233.
Offered: SP
3.0 credits ENGR-236: Thermodynamics
This first course in thermodynamics is applicable to all engineering disciplines (and modern society in general) as it deals with energy, and an "energy-balance" approach to problem solving. The first portion is devoted to energy, energy transfer, and physical properties. The first law of thermodynamics (which relates energy to heat and work) and the second law (specifies the direction of certain processes) are then covered in detail.
Minimum grade required: "C"
Prerequisites: TAKE PHYS-215
Offered: SP
1.0 - 4.0 credits ENGR-299: Special Topics
Special or specific topic course to meet the needs of students. Topics and credits are announced in the Schedule of Classes. These courses may be used as electives for Associate degree requirements. May be repeated one or more times for additional credit. No more than 6 credits of special topic courses can be used toward a degree.
Offered: DMND
