Engineering Course Descriptions

EGR 100   Introduction to Engineering ...   1

Introduction to the profession of engineering within the scope of overall technical occupations.  Course includes resources for major exploration (incorporating regional professional societies, guest seminars, and university transfer information).  Emphasis is placed on emerging trends in field practice (globalization, computerization, nanotechnology, renewable energy, bio engineering, and contract engineering).  Content focuses on distinguishing aspects of practice (advanced math/science application, planning, analysis, communication) critical to the profession.

EGR 104   Engineering Design ...   3

Prerequisites: MAT 121

Introduction to technical project management involving team activities with project planning, physical design with CAD, data analysis, and communication.  Planning topics covered include project scoping, scheduling, budgeting, decision analysis, and risk reduction.  Data analysis includes basic charting/ statistics, data interpretation, and measurement  science.  Communication learning involves novel methods for effectiveness both with technical and non-technical audiences.  A team project is involved necessitating significant team member interaction outside of class.  AutoCAD, Excel, Word, and PowerPoint are learned and utilized. 

EGR 170   Engineering Mechanics I-Statics ...   3
