Engineering (EGR)

  • Intro to Engineering

    EGR-150, Lecture: 1, Lab: 2, Credits: 2
    Fall 2019
    No prerequisites.No corequisites.

    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.

  • Engineering Statics

    EGR-220, Lecture: 3, Credits: 3
    Fall 2019
    Prerequisites
    Take PHY-251
    Corequisites
    Take MAT-272

    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.

  • Engineering Dynamics

    EGR-225, Lecture: 3, Credits: 3
    Spring 2020
    Prerequisites
    Take EGR-220
    Corequisites
    Take 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.
