Engineering

ENGR 101 Engineering Orientation

An introduction to engineering, its evolution, methods, and ethics. An overview of various engineering disciplines and curriculum requirements, an introduction to a variety of modeling and analysis methods, written and oral communication activities, discussion of professional ethics and social implications of engineering work. The course includes visits by guest speakers, possible field trips, introductory activities on measurement methods, data collection, use of electronic spreadsheets and the Internet, possible group projects and/or oral and written reports.
 

ENGR 102 Engineering Orientation 2

Prerequisite or Co-requisite: MTH 251 completed with a grade of "C-" or better within the past two years. This course is an introduction to the use of computing language in engineering. Students will use a standard problem-solving methodology through the course.
 

ENGR 115 Engineering Graphics

Prerequisite or Corequisite: MTH 112 or equivalent course completed with a grade of C- or better within the past two years or placement by the College’s Math Placement process. An introduction to graphic communication, including visualization, multiview and isometric projections, sections, auxiliary views, and ASME dimensioning and tolerancing standards. Graphic concepts are applied using freehand sketching and Solidworks.
 

ENGR 211 Statics

Prerequisite: MTH 252 and PH 211 completed with a grade of "C-" or better within the past two years. Principles of statics of particles and rigid bodies are studied with a vectorial approach. Particular attention will be given to the composition, resolution and equilibrium of coplanar and non-coplanar force systems; two dimensional trusses and frames; centroids and moments of inertia of plane areas; coulombic friction; and the distribution of shear and bending moments in simple beams.
 

ENGR 212 Dynamics

Prerequisite: ENGR 211 and MTH 254, all completed with a grade of "C-" or better within the past two years. This is a fundamental dynamics course of particles and rigid bodies. Topics include kinematics and kinetics of particles and kinematics of rigid bodies; Newton's second law of motion; rectilinear and curvilinear motion; linear and angular momentum; principles of work and energy; impulse and momentum and D'Alembert's Principle.
 

ENGR 213 Strength of Materials

Prerequisite: ENGR 211 and MTH 252, both completed with a minimum grade of "C-" or better within the past two years. Course presents theory of stress and strain, shear, bending, combined stresses, and temperature-induced stresses in axially loaded members, circular shafts, beams and in statically indeterminate systems. Additional topics include thin-walled pressure vessels, torsional and flexural loading, failure theory and column buckling.
 

ENGR 221 Electrical Fundamentals 1

Prerequisite: PH 213 completed with a grade of "C-" or better within the past two years. Linear circuits will be analyzed via Kirchoff's Laws using idealized circuit elements. Steady state and sinusoidal responses of passive and active circuits will be addressed. The course emphasizes a combination of conceptual understanding, mathematical analysis, lab experiments and computer simulations. This course is designed for engineering majors.
