Course Descriptions

ENGR 110: INTRODUCTION TO ENGINEERING

1 hr. (TC)

Prerequisite: Credit or concurrent enrollment in MATH 165 or higher

This course provides an introduction to the engineering profession. Informed educational and career choices are facilitated through discussions with guest speakers from industry and transfer universities. Skills are developed in engineering problem solving and the use of the personal computer for word processing, spreadsheet analysis, and equation solving. A team design project is included.

ENGR 113: ENGINEERING GRAPHICS/CAD

3 hrs. (TC)

Prerequisite: Credit or concurrent enrollment in MATH 165 or higher and appropriate score on the engineering placement test or department approval

This is a course in hand-sketching and computer-aided design, modeling, and drawing techniques. Topics include: lettering/text, scaling, multiview first and third angle orthographic projections, pictorial presentation, descriptive geometry with auxiliary views, sections, dimensioning, tolerancing, fasteners, assemblies and production drawings. [IAI: EGR 941]

ENGR 230: PROGRAMMING ENGINEERING APPLICATIONS

3 hrs. (TC)

Prerequisite: MATH 222 with a grade of "C" or better and introductory computer skills

This course uses a high-level programming language to solve specific mathematical and scientific problems applying various mathematical techniques, including numerical and matrix algebra. Structured design is stressed as an essential part of programming each exercise. The course is intended to provide a tool for the engineering student to be able to design their own programs.

ENGR 240: ENGINEERING CIRCUIT ANALYSIS

4 hrs. (TC)

Prerequisite: A grade of "C" or better in PHYS 212; Credit with a grade of "C" or better or concurrent enrollment in MATH 250

This is the first electrical engineering circuit analysis course which includes the study of the principles of circuit operation as well as the mathematical techniques used to analyze circuit behavior under both transient and steady-state conditions, including loop and nodal equations, network theorems, and matrix methods. [IAI: EGR 931]

ENGR 241: ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING LAB

2 hrs. (TC)

Prerequisite: Credit with a "C" or better, or concurrent enrollment in ENGR 240

This is the basic electrical engineering laboratory course which acquaints the student with the methods and equipment used in a variety of experimental investigations. It serves as a foundation for more advanced electrical engineering lab work. [IAI: EGR931L]
