This course is designed for people interested in learning about the engineering profession. It provides an overview of the engineering disciplines. A project-based approach will be used to give experience in skills, tools, and problem-solving methods associated with completing engineering design solutions.
This course is designed for people interested in mechanical, civil and aerospace engineering and the Bachelor of Construction Management degree. The student will learn to make AUTOCAD drawings in a Windows environment. The topics that will be covered include: drawing, editing, pan, zoom, view, laying, plotting, dimensioning, blocks, inquiry, purge, DXF, ZIP, UNZIP, XREF, and work in three dimensions.NOTE: Students who do not have access outside of class to computer hardware capable of running AutoCAD can access the program in the computer lab outside of class time.
This course will provide flexibility in offering an in-depth review of topics of immediate importance and topical interest. These topics will go beyond the introductory courses in examining specific aspects of the subject matter.
This is an introduction to digital logic design. Topics include Boolean algebra fundamentals; Karnaugh mapping; elements of digital building blocks such as gates, flip-flops, shift registers, memories, etc.; analysis and design of combinational-logic circuit and sequential-logic circuits.
This course examines systems held in static equilibrium. Topics include vector algebra, equivalent systems of forces, equilibrium of particles and rigid bodies, moments, center of mass, centroids, analysis of structural and machine elements, distributed loads, friction.
This course is an introduction to the linear stress-strain behavior of engineering materials. Topics will include stresses due to uniaxial loading, bending and torsion; stress transformations, beam deflections, indeterminate structures, column buckling, stress analysis of structural and machine elements.
Dynamics is the study of motion and the effect of forces on bodies in motion. This course will cover the kinematics and kinetics of particles, of systems of particles, and of rigid bodies in the plane; application of work-energy and impulse-momentum methods; introduction to mechanical vibrations.
This course will cover basic laws of thermodynamics; energy transfer processes; conservation of mass and energy; entropy balance; thermal properties of materials; equations of state; reversible and irreversible processes and cycles. Also includes applications to engineering systems.
This course explores direct-current and alternating circuits. Topics include Kirchhoff's Laws; mesh and nodal analysis; Thevenin's and Norton's Theorems; RL, RC, and RLC circuits; sinusoidal steady state analysis of AC circuits; operational amplifiers. A laboratory component is included.
