Engineering - Fall 2017

Intro Engineering & ENR Design — 3449
ENR 1560 – 4 credits

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

Mechanics-Statics — 3452
ENR 2550 – 3 credits

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

Analysis/Linear Elec Circuits — 3453
ENR 2740 – 3 credits
Timothy W. Piazza

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
