This introductory course in graphical drawing and blueprint interpretation includes
orthographic projections, pictorials, lettering, scales, basic dimensioning, blueprint
reading plus interpretation of documents related to blueprints such as construction
contract documents, specifications and addendum, emphasizing commercial and industrial
building construction. Laboratory time includes practice with basic drafting techniques.
This course provides familiarization with computer-aided drafting techniques using
an interactive microcomputer CAD system. Students create, edit and store basic drawings
using a tablet digitizer and/or screen menu consisting of geometric forms and alphanumeric
characters. Laboratory included. Prerequisites: strongly recommend basic computer
This course provides a continuation of the topics introduced in ENGR 105 with an emphasis
on basic customization. Topics include configuration profiles, script files, user-created
menus, slide files, attribute creation and extraction, 3-D construction, and solid
modeling. Laboratory included. Prerequisites: ENGR 105 or equivalent.
Fundamental concepts, techniques, and applications of risk analysis and risk-informed
decision making for engineering students. An introduction to lock-out tag procedures,
electrical arc flash protection, personal protection equipment (PPE) safety gear,
and hands-on safety training.
Principles of engineering statics including basic concepts, resultants, force-couple
relationships, equilibrium diagrams, equilibrium analysis, three-dimensional structures,
two-dimensional frames, trusses, beams and friction. Prerequisites: MATH& 152, PHYS&
222 or equivalent, or instructor's permission.
Students will learn the foundations for field survey techniques with field labs using
methods and tools such as a total station and leveling equipment. The course covers
the Professional Land Survey System along with how to establish and adjust control
and conduct field survey to produce a topographic map.
Issues and case studies of policy development, strategy, planning and management of
technology in the overall corporate environment. Including understanding of LEAN manufacturing
Crystal structure, microstructure, and physical properties of metals, ceramics, polymers,
composites, and amorphous materials. Also includes elementary mechanical behavior
and phase equilibria.
The mechanics of materials emphasizing the analysis and design of statically determinate
beams, columns, and structural members in torsion and application of the three moment
equations to statically indeterminate beams.
A course in fluid mechanics. Topics include: fluid properties, hydrostatics, conservation
laws, infinitesimal and finite control volume analysis, Navier-Stokes equations, dimensional
analysis, internal and external flows. Students will build upon knowledge gained in
ENGR 325 and analyze, troubleshoot, predict and problem-solve complex structures.
Modeling and analysis of dynamic systems and introduction to feedback control. Topics
include dynamic modeling and response of mechanical, electrical, fluid, and thermal
systems; and feedback control systems analysis. Students will build upon skills learned
in the sequence of courses that will allow them to draw conclusions about complex
problems and provide solutions.
Analysis of hydraulic control components and systems. Topics include pumps, valves,
actuators, and industrial and mobile control systems.
Design of systems which require the integration of mechanical and electronic components.
Topics include microcontrollers, sensors, actuators, mechanical systems, real time
control system programming, and modeling of electronic and mechanical systems.
Safety and health in the manufacturing, construction, and utilities industries, including
pertinent laws, codes, regulations, standards, and product liability considerations.
Organizational and administrative principles and practices for safety management and
safety engineering, accident investigation, safety education, and safety enforcement.
Prepare and plan for capstone project.
Supervised on-the-job training with a manufacturer, processor, or related industrial
firm. Students will need a letter of recommendation and faculty director permission.
Students can choose projects in electronics, renewable energy systems, wireless/data
communications and automation/robotics. Typical project activities include the research
and design phase, the execution phase, and the project report phase. A written report
and oral presentation is required.
