DFT 170 Engineering Graphics          2 Lecture 2 Lab 3 Credit

Prerequisites: None

Corequisites: None

Local Prerequisites: MAT 171

This course introduces basic engineering graphics skills and applications. Topics include sketching, selection and use of current methods and tools, and the use of engineering graphics applications. Upon completion, students should be able to demonstrate an understanding of basic engineering graphics principles and practices. This course has been approved for transfer under the CAA as a premajor and/or elective course requirement.

EGR 150 Intro to Engineering            Lecture 2 Lab 2 Credit

Prerequisites: None

Corequisites: None

Local Corequisite: ACA 122 This course is an overview of the engineering profession. Topics include goal setting and career assessment, ethics, public safety, the engineering method and design process, written and oral communication, interpersonal skills and team building, and computer applications. Upon completion, students should be able to understand the engineering process, the engineering profession, and utilize college resources to meet their educational goals. This course has been approved for transfer under the CAA as a premajor and/or elective course requirement.

EGR 220 Engineering Statics          3 Lecture 0 Lab 3 Credit

Prerequisites: PHY 251

Corequisites: MAT 272

Local Prerequisites: MAT 272 and PHY 251; with a grade of C or better

This course introduces the concepts of engineering based on forces in equilibrium. Topics include concentrated forces, distributed forces, forces due to friction, and inertia as they apply to machines, structures, and systems. Upon completion, students should be able to solve problems which require the ability to analyze systems of forces in static equilibrium. This course has been approved for transfer under the CAA as a premajor and/or elective course requirement.

EGR 225 Engineering Dynamics          3 Lecture 0 Lab 3 Credit

Prerequisites: EGR 220

Corequisites: MAT 273

This course introduces the concepts of engineering based on the analysis of motion in Cartesian, cylindrical, and spherical coordinate systems. Topics include the two and three dimensional motion of particles and rigid bodies, the forces associated with that motion, and relative motion between two coordinate systems. Upon completion, students should be able to solve problems which require the ability to analyze the motion and forces involved in a dynamic system. This course has been approved for transfer under the CAA as a premajor and/or elective course requirement.
