Course Descriptions

Engineering Graphics - ENGR 1032 (ENGR 103)
Course Description: Introduces the student to conception, visualization, and communication of creative design concepts useful in the field of engineering. Develops drafting skills and introduces sketching, drafting instruments and computer software for graphic representations. Emphasis is placed on graphical analysis, orthographic projection, auxiliary views, pictorial drawings, dimensioning methods, and sectioning with adherence to USA Standards Institute standards. AutoCAD will be used.
Prerequisite:  MATH 1113 (or MATH 101) or MATH 1213 (or MATH 110) with a grade of c or better
2 credit hours

Introduction to Engineering - ENGR 1052
Course Description:  Introduces students to the history of engineering, engineering disciplines and principles of design.  The course allows students to get an overview of engineering from the beginning of their study and to become broadly educated across various engineering disciplines while learning how to solve engineering problems. Professional issues such as licensure, ethics, safety, and design are discussed. Projects and activities are used to develop problem solving, written and verbal communication and computer skills (word-processing, spreadsheets, presentations, mathematical analysis, email, Internet).
Prerequisites: MATH 1113 (or MATH 101) or MATH 1213 (or MATH 110) with a grade of "C" or better and eligibility for ENGL 1013
2 credit hours

Surveying - ENGR 2073 (ENGR 207)
Course Description:  Covers the fundamentals of surveying procedures and office computations including electronic distance measurement, leveling, computer solutions to land area problems, stadia measurements, topographic surveys and construction surveys.
Prerequisites:  MATH 1223 (or MATH 111) with a grade of C or better
3 credit hours

Statics - ENGR 2453 (ENGR 245)
Course Description:  Introduces the students to engineering skills and provides a strong engineering foundation for further study.  Emphasizes vector treatment of resultants and equilibrium of force systems, including equilibrium of particles, internal forces, rigid bodies, trusses and frames.  Also focuses on the area moment of inertia, the center of mass and the centroid of area.
Prerequisites:  MATH 2125 (or MATH 211) and PHYS 2133 (or PHYS 221) with grade of C or better
