Engineering (ENGR)

ENGR 101. Graphical Communication

Credits: 3
Corequisite: Concurrent registration in, or previous successful completion of, Math 105 or Math 107.
Typically Offered: FALL
An introduction to Engineering and Engineering Technology including career options, ethics, the engineering design process, an introduction to engineering calculation methods, and an introduction to graphical communication practices including elementary space visualization of points, lines, planes, and solids on orthogonal projection; graphical expression of technical sketching; geometry; pictorial representation, and an introduction to plan production techniques. Beginning computer-aided drafting and modeling is also introduced.

ENGR 192. Experimental Course

Credits: 1-3
Typically Offered: ONDEMAND
An experimental course is one that is being tested to determine its suitability for inclusion in the course catalog. Testing may continue for two semesters, after which the course should be discontinued or approved through the established college procedures, assigned a permanent course number and title, and included in the master catalog.

ENGR 194. Independent Study

Credits: 1-3
Typically Offered: ONDEMAND
An independent study course is one designed jointly by the student and faculty member to address an advanced topic of particular interest to the student and in the instructor's field of expertise. The course, when developed, must be approved by the department chair as being relevant to the discipline and of sufficient rigor for the credits to be awarded.

ENGR 195. Service Learning

Credits: 1
Repeat Status: Repeatable up to 6.00 credits.
Typically Offered: ONDEMAND
Designed to increase off-campus community involvement and awareness of civic responsibility, Service Learning gives students the opportunity to earn up to six semester hours of college credit while pursuing volunteer activities that have positive impact in the community. Some examples of activities that may serve as vehicles for Service Learning include: volunteer work at non-profit organizations (e.g., Kiwanis, Lions, etc.); serving as unpaid interns in local and state government; and organizing and participating in activities that are beneficial to the community as a whole (e.g. spring clean-up drives, neighborhood watch programs, meals-on-wheels, etc.). Students interested in Service Learning should discuss options with their academic advisors and/or faculty in areas related to the proposed activity.

ENGR 196. Study Tour

Credits: 1-3
Typically Offered: ONDEMAND
Study Tour courses provide students with unique learning opportunities in locations, either foreign or domestic. These learning opportunities should be directly related to the academic field of study under which credits are to be awarded. Some students may not qualify for study tours if their travel abroad is restricted for legal reasons.

ENGR 197. Cooperative Education/Internship

Credits: 1-3
Repeat Status: Repeatable up to 6.00 credits.
Typically Offered: ONDEMAND
Cooperative education and internships provide students with real-world experience in business and industry as they explore careers or gain experience in chosen fields of study. The work experiences must be directly related to the discipline under which the credits are to be awarded.

ENGR 199. Special Topics

Credits: 1-3
Typically Offered: ONDEMAND
Special topics courses are developed by the faculty member to take advantage of unique learning opportunities that either are not repeatable (such as a presidential election) or address advanced topics not normally covered in the curriculum. Topics covered must be directly related to the discipline under which credits are to be awarded.

ENGR 201. Statics

Credits: 3
Corequisite: Concurrent registration in, or previous successful completion of, MATH 166.
Typically Offered: FALLSPR
Vector approach to principles of statics. Resultants of force systems, equilibrium of force systems, analysis of structures, centroids, moments of inertia.

ENGR 202. Dynamics

Credits: 3
Prerequisite: ENGR 201.
Typically Offered: FALLSPR
Vector approach to principles of dynamics. Rectilinear and curvilinear translation, rotation, plane motion, force-mass-inertia, work-energy, impulse-momentum.

ENGR 203. Mechanics of Materials

Credits: 3
Prerequisite: ENGR 201.
Typically Offered: SPRING
Students study simple stress and strain, torsion, shear and bending moment, flexural and shearing stresses in beams, combined stresses, deflection of beams, statically indeterminate members and columns.

ENGR 204. Surveying I

Credits: 3
Prerequisites: Either MATH 105 or MATH 107; plus CAD 211.
Corequisite: ENGR 204L.
Typically Offered: FALL
This course includes an introduction to surveying, measurements and errors, measurements of distances and angles, differential leveling, traverse surveys, coordinate geometry and area calculations, mapping, construction surveys, simple horizontal and vertical curves, earthwork calculations, and an introduction to GPS surveying, state plane coordinates and Public Land Survey system.

ENGR 204L. Surveying I Lab

Credits: 1
Typically Offered: FALL
Three hours of lab per week. Field and office exercises that supplement lecture material. Equipment used includes tapes, chains, levels, total stations, and GPS equipment.

ENGR 205. Surveying II

Credits: 3
Prerequisites: ENGR 204 and ENGR 204L.
Corequisite: ENGR 205L.
Typically Offered: SPRING
This course includes expanded topics on state plane coordinate system, Public Land Survey system, survey types (including boundary surveys, A.L.T.A. surveys and others), survey controls, precision, additional topics in GPS surveying, laser scan surveys, and surveying data collection and reduction.

ENGR 205L. Surveying II Lab

Credits: 1
Typically Offered: SPRING
Three hours of lab per week. Field and office exercises that supplement lecture material. Equipment used includes tapes, chains, levels, total stations, robotic/spatial total stations, and GPS equipment.
