The following courses are offered in Engineering:
- This course provides an introduction to engineering practice through hands-on investigations, computer applications, and design projects in the fields of structures and robotics. All investigations and design projects are performed in groups and presented in oral and/or written form. Computers are used for documentation, data analysis and robot control.
Prerequisites: MAT 206, CHE 201 or CHE 210, PHY 215 or departmental approval
- This course introduces topics important for engineers. Computer aided analysis techniques are introduced and used for the design and modeling of engineering systems such as electrical circuits, pipelines, signal and image processing, aircraft engines, orbits and trajectories, protein molecules and sewer treatment.
Corequisites: MAT 206, CHE 201 or CHE 210, PHY 215 or departmental approval
- This is a course in fundamental engineering drawing and industrial drafting-room practice. Lettering, orthographic projection, auxiliary views, sessions and conventions, pictorials, threads and fasteners, tolerances, detail drawing dimensioning and electrical drawing; introduction to computer-aided graphics are covered.
- This course provides the students with a basic working knowledge of Computer Aided Drafting. Through the use of engineering drawings, students develop skills in the use of a mainstream computer assisted drawing software package like AutoCAD for Civil Engineering. Methods and procedures are developed for solving practical drafting problems encountered in construction projects using Computer Aided Drafting methods. Students will learn the sequence of commands and/or steps required to start, create, save and plot CAD drawings. Skills are also developed in the reading and interpretation of typical working drawings from construction projects.
- This is a course in statics and dynamics and designed for engineering students. Among the topics covered are forces, equilibrium, friction, kinematics and dynamics of a particle, work and energy, linear and angular motion, and rotational dynamics of a rigid body.
Prerequisites: PHY 225 and MAT 302, or departmental approval
- This course is a three-dimensional vector treatment of the static equilibrium of particles and rigid bodies. Topics include: equivalent force and coupled systems, static analysis of trusses, frames machines, friction, properties of surfaces and rigid bodies, particle kinematics, path variables, cylindrical coordinates and relative motion. Elements of design are incorporated in the course.
Prerequisites: ESC 130, MAT 302 and PHY 225 and SCI 120, or SCI 121, or departmental approval
- This course is a three-dimensional vector treatment of the kinematics of rigid bodies using various coordinate systems. Topics include: relative motion, particle dynamics, Newton?s laws, energy and mechanical vibrations. Elements of design are incorporated in the course.
Prerequisites: ESC 130, ESC 201, PHY 225, Corequisite: MAT 501 or departmental approval
- This course covers introductory concepts and definitions; Absolute temperature, Work, heat, First Law and applications, Second Law, Carnot Theorem, entropy, thermodynamic state variables and functions, reversibility, irreversibility, ideal gas mixtures, mixtures of vapors and gas, humidity calculations.
Corequisites: CHE 201 and PHY 225
- This course covers circuit elements and their voltage-current relations; Kirchoff's Laws, elementary circuit analysis; continuous signals; differential equations; first order systems and second order systems. Students will simulate circuits on the computer. A laboratory component is integrated into the course.
Prerequisite: PHY 225 and ESC 113, Corequisite: MAT 501 or departmental approval
- This course includes the analysis and design of cominational and sequential circuits and their applications to digital systems. The use of integrated circuits in the design of digital circuits is illustrated in the laboratory experiments.
