Engineering 102 provides for the development of analytical and communication skills by problem solving, teamwork and project presentation. The course gives instruction on how to use computers in engineering: how to utilize engineering software, problem solving, data acquisition and analysis. Included is how to use a computer algebra system to solve math and engineering problems. Students learn the elements of the engineering design process through execution of actual design projects. Other topics include an introduction to patents and patent law and the interaction between the engineer and physical environment. Offered only in the fall semester.
ENGR 102 - Engineering Design and Laboratory I
MATH 162 or a higher-level Mathematics course.
ENGR 202 - Engineering Design and Laboratory II
This course is a continuation of Engineering Design and Laboratory I. It provides for the development of analytical and communication skills by problem solving, teamwork and project presentation. The course gives instruction on how to use computers in engineering: how to utilize engineering software, problem solving, data acquisition and analysis. In addition, students learn technical sketching and computer-aided drafting techniques with industry-standard software. Students learn the elements of the engineering design process through execution of actual design projects. Offered only in the spring semester.
ENGR 205 - Materials Engineering
In this course, students will be taught to recognize and differentiate between the several types of engineering solids, understand solids at the atomic level in terms of bonding and energy, establish a quantitative picture of the structure of crystalline and non-crystalline solids, explain atomic movements in solids using the concept of diffusion, explain the electrical and magnetic properties of different kinds of materials, and understand the processes that give rise to degradation of materials. They will also learn to interpret the optical behavior of materials in terms of the interaction of electromagnetic radiation with the material and choose materials optimally for engineering design purposes. Offered only in the spring semester.
ENGR 221 - Vector Mechanics I (Statics)
Students will learn how to use analytic geometry, differential and integral calculus and vector algebra in solving engineering problems. They will also learn about the concept of the free-body diagram and its use in conjunction with static equilibrium of forces. The course will focus upon using the deductive process to solve a great variety of problems involving particles and rigid bodies in a state of static equilibrium.
ENGR 222 - Vector Mechanics II (Dynamics)
Students will learn how to use calculus-based mathematics in solving engineering problems in dynamics, including problems related to rectilinear and curvilinear motion of rigid bodies and concept of impact, rotation and acceleration of the system of rigid bodies in a plane motion.
