  • ENR 1560 Intro Engineering & ENR Design

    This course provides a first experience for students choosing an engineering career and is divided into three segments. Part one covers the engineering design process. Part two introduces the student to computer-aided design. Part three introduces the student to the engineering fields and advances in high technology. Field trips and speakers are used to help the student select a major field and a transfer institution. Corequisite: MAT 1590. Master Course Syllabus

  • ENR 2010 Engineering Internship I

    Students receive on-the-job experience consisting of 135 hours of supervised activity in a local business or industry. Students work in conjunction with a faculty mentor and a supervisor at the job site. All guidelines in the original college internship policy will be followed. Prerequisite: at least a 2.0 GPA and either sophomore standing or one semester completion in an appropriate certificate program. Master Course Syllabus

  • ENR 2020 Engineering Internship II

    Students receive on-the-job experience consisting of 135 hours of supervised activity in a local business or industry. Students work in conjunction with a faculty mentor and a supervisor at the job site. All guidelines in the original college internship policy will be followed. Prerequisite: at least a 2.0 GPA and either sophomore standing or one semester completion in an appropriate certificate program. Master Course Syllabus

  • ENR 2510 Thermodynamics

    Students will continue investigations into mechanics with extensive study in thermodynamic systems. Students will analyze and solve problems involving fluid dynamics, energy conservation, and thermodynamic processes. Prerequisite: PHY 1610 or 1710 and MAT 1720. Master Course Syllabus

  • ENR 2550 Mechanics-Statics

    Students will study rigid body mechanics including forces, force systems, their resultants, and conditions for equilibrium. Other topics include equivalent force systems, equilibrium of rigid bodies, structural mechanics to include trusses, frames and beams, shear and bending moment diagrams, friction, and properties of areas and volumes. Prerequisites: MAT 1720 and PHY 1710; Corequisite: MAT 2650. Master Course Syllabus

  • ENR 2560 Mechanics-Dynamics

    Students will study time derivatives of vectors using Cartesian, cylindrical, and path coordinates. The dynamics of a particle from a single frame of reference including rectilinear and central force problems are stressed. Other topics are conservation of energy and momentum as applied to dynamic problems. Rigid body rotations and Coriolis acceleration are studied in detail. Prerequisite: ENR 2550; Corequisite: MAT 2680. Master Course Syllabus

  • ENR 2580 Strength of Materials

    Students will be able to explain the concepts of stress and strain and the relationships between them in the solution of problems such as beams, columns, torsional members, connections and combined loading (Mohrs circle). Stress concentrations, thin-walled pressure vessels, and beam deflections are covered. Laboratory experiences include standard tests to determine properties of various materials when subjected to normal stress, bending, shear impact, and torsion loading. Hardness tests and non-destructive testing procedures are used. Prerequisites: MAT 2650 and ENR 2550. Master Course Syllabus

  • ENR 2740 Analysis/Linear Elec Circuits

    Students will gain expertise in the techniques of elementary circuit analysis. DC resistive circuits are first analyzed using Ohms and Kirchhoffs laws, voltage and current division, resistance and source combinations, and superposition. Basic techniques are expanded to include dependent sources, mesh analysis, nodal analysis, Thevenins and Nortons theorems, and the maximum power transfer theorem. Sinusoidal, exponential, and damped sinusoidal forcing functions are then introduced along with inductance and capacitance. LaPlace transforms are used to obtain complete solutions for first and second order RL, RC, and RLC circuits. Prerequisite: MAT 1250 or Corequisite: MAT 1720. Master Course Syllabus
