This course is designed to equip engineering students with the necessary tools & background Info to prepare them to be successful engineering students as well as a successful practicing engineer. Topics covered in this course include Proj. Mgmt., team work, technical writing, working with data & using spreadsheets, creating presentations, engineering design, & a thorough underst&ing of the engineering profession.
ENGINEERING GRAPHICS WITH COMPUTER AIDED DRAFTING
(Previously GRA 110) An Introductory course in engineering graphics focusing on graphical communication. Topics include descriptive geometry elements, visualization, engineering drawing techniques, orthographic Proj.ion, pictorial representation, auxiliary views, section views, & basic dimensioning. The course incorporates computer aided drafting (CAD) with engineering applications using 2-D drawing & 3-D modeling techniques.
SOLID MODELING AND DESIGN
This Proj.-based course Introduces students to reverse engineering & three-dimensional design using industry st&ard solid modeling software (SolidWorks). The course assumes some previous knowledge of solid modeling, such as would typically be gained in an Introductory engineering graphics & computer aided drafting course. This course will include one or more reverse engineering Proj.(s) that will require the students? application of engineering problem skills.
(Previously MEC 202) Kinematics, force-mass-acceleration relations, work & energy, impulse & momentum, & moments of inertia of mass. This course will serve the requirements of the several engineering curricula.
MECHANICS OF MATERIALS
(Previously MEC 203) Stress & strain, torsion, bending of beams, compound stresses, principal stresses, deflection of beams, statically indeterminate members, columns, elastic buckling, fatigue, creep, impact, & concrete properties.
First & second laws of thermodynamics; thermodynamic properties of real & ideal gases, vapors, & mixtures; analysis of power & refrigeration cycles.
