ENGR 1201  Engineering Sci Orientation

Credits: 1.00 Credit

An examination of strategies for success, including organizational and study skills, and transfer and career opportunities for engineering students in industry. There will be at least a dozen textbook and research readings followed by written assignments on topics to include the variety of engineering transfer institutions and engineering majors, diversity in society and the technical workplace, personal assessments of goals, values, strengths and weaknesses as related to student and technical career success, employment application techniques such as resume writing, letters of application, interviewing, follow-up communications, and an introduction to MS word and Excel.

ENGR 2001  Engineering Computing Applctns

Credits: 1.00 Credit

This is an introductory, software-oriented, engineering computing course using an interactive, high-performance, scientific and engineering software package which integrates computation and visualization in a programming environment to solve engineering application problems. Topics will include embedded mathematical functions, complex numbers, matrix manipulation, plotting, user defined script and function files, matrix algebra, numerical techniques and graphical user interfaces.

ENGR 2201  Engineering Science Seminar

Credits: 1.00 Credit

The purpose of this course is to assist sophomore engineering science students in choosing and transferring to the college or university of their choice in order to complete a baccalaureate degree in engineering. Transfer admissions visitors are invited to classes and there may be class trips to potential transfer institutions depending on the interest of the students. This is a required course for the Engineering Science associate degree.

ENGR 3004  Circuit Analysis I

Credits: 4.00 Credits

This Calculus-based course covers dc circuit analysis including voltage, current, resistance, power and energy. Circuit analysis techniques and Kirchhoff's laws are applied to series, parallel and combined circuits. Thevenin's, Norton's and Superposition theorems are applied to dc circuits. Operational amplifiers are introduced. Inductance and capacitance are introduced and the transient response of RL, RC and RLC circuits to step inputs is studied using differential equations. The laboratory incorporates use of manual and computer-controlled equipment and simulation software to reinforce lecture concepts. Computational software is required for circuit calculations.

ENGR 3213  Analytical Mechanics I

Credits: 3.00 Credits

This course covers statics at the intermediate level. Equilibrium of particles and rigid bodies in two and three dimensions, centroids, centers of gravity, analysis of structures, friction, area and mass moments of inertia. Calculus and vector mathematics are employed throughout.

ENGR 3254  Systems Dynamics I

Credits: 4.00 Credits

This course covers analysis, modeling and design of dynamic and feedback control systems using a common methodology regardless of physical discipline. Mathematical modeling, block diagrams, transfer functions, system excitation, response and stability of linear mechanical and electrical systems in both time and frequency domains will be studied using classical techniques, state space representation, matrix notation and Laplace transforms. The laboratory will include programming and simulation of independent and coupled, first and second order electrical and mechanical systems using appropriate software such as MATLAB and SIMULINK. An experimental project or simulation will be required.

ENGR 4004  Circuit Analysis II

Credits: 4.00 Credits

This course covers AC circuit analysis beginning with the study of sinusoidal steady-state solutions for circuits in the time domain. Nodal, loop and mesh methods of AC circuit analyses and the Thevenin, Norton and Superposition theorems are applied to the complex plane. AC power, transformers, mutual induction, three-phase circuits and two-port networks are introduced and used for analysis. Laplace and Fourier Transforms and the Fourier Series are applied to circuit analyses. Complex frequency analysis is introduced to enable discussion of transfer functions, frequency dependent behavior, resonance phenomenon and simple filter circuits. The laboratory incorporates use of manual and computer-controlled equipment and simulation software to reinforce lecture concepts. Computational software use is required for circuit calculations.

ENGR 4213  Analytical Mechanics II

Credits: 3.00 Credits

This course covers dynamics at the intermediate level. Topics in kinematics and kinetics include particles, systems of particles and rigid bodies, mechanical vibrations, force, mass, acceleration, work and energy, impulse and momentum. Calculus and vector mathematics are employed throughout.

ENGR 4264  Engr Mechanics of Materials

Credits: 4.00 Credits

This course is a calculus-based study of advanced concepts in Mechanics of Materials. It addresses the behavior of deformable mechanical components when subjected to tension, compression, torsion, flexure/bending or a combination of these loads. Extensive use is made of free body diagrams as well as Mohr's Circle for stress and strain. Experience is gained in the analysis of beam deflection, shafts in torsion, power, column buckling and thin walled pressure vessels. Analysis includes examination of stress concentrations, elastic and inelastic response, residual stresses, indeterminate structures and thermal effects. Superposition, singularity functions and theories of failure are studied. Laboratory experiences include traditional mechanical material testing and computer software applications.

ENGR 4900  Directed Study

Credits: 1.00 TO 6.00 Credits

A student may contract for one to six credit hours of independent study through an arrangement with an instructor who agrees to direct such a study. The student will submit a plan acceptable to the instructor and to the department chairperson. The instructor and student will confer regularly regarding the process of the study.
