Introduces the fundamentals of drawing with a computer-aided drafting software system. Drawing and editing commands are used to create and revise a variety of drawings. Topics include CAD systems, advantages, applications, and operational skills. Prerequisite: ENGR& 114 or permission of instructor.
Introduces fundamental concepts of electrical science. Topics include resistors, sources, capacitors, inductors, and operational amplifiers as individual components and as circuit systems. Also covers simultaneous algebraic equations and differential equations in solution methods. Prerequisite: MATH 238 and PHYS 122.
Explores principles of statics, vector algebra, force-couple relationships, equilibrium analysis, structures, area properties, beams, and friction. Prerequisite: PHYS 121 or MATH&254.
Surveys the dynamics of particles and rigid bodies using vector analysis. Specific topics include kinematics, kinetics, momentum, and energy principles for particles and rigid bodies, as well as Euler's Equations of Motion. Prerequisite: ENGR& 214.
Introduces basic principles of thermodynamics from a predominately macroscopic point of view. Topics include the basic laws of thermodynamics as relating to energy transformations and state changes in engineering problems. Recommended: CHEM& 162 and MATH& 152.
Introduces the concepts of stress, deformation, and strain in solid materials. Topics include basic relationships between loads on structural and machine elements such as rods, shafts, and beams, and the stresses, deflection and load-carrying capacity of these elements under tension, compression, torsion, bending, and shear forces. Prerequisite: ENGR& 214.
Covers directed readings, special projects, and independent study by an individual student. May be repeated for a maximum of 15 credits. Prerequisite: Permission of instructor.
