Introduction to engineering for students in the pre-engineering program. Engineering as a profession and career opportunities. Fundamentals of engineering design and analysis using the computer. College algebra and trigonometry strongly recommended.
Vector mechanics, force and moment systems, equilibrium of particles and rigid bodies, friction and moments of inertia. Prerequisites: MATH SI1210 and PHYS PS/SI2210.
Fundamentals of position, velocity and acceleration. Kinematics and kinetics of particles. Newton's laws, conservation of momentum and energy. Dynamics of rigid bodies. Prerequisite: ENGR 2010 with a grade of "C" or higher.
Fundamentals of stress and strain, Hooke's law, torsion, bending of beams, combined stresses and design of members. Prerequisite: ENGR 2010 with a grade of "C" or higher.
Combined lecture/laboratory course that introduces the fundamentals of atomic and microscopic structure of metals, polymers, ceramics and composite materials, and how these structures affect mechanical, thermal, electrical and optical properties. Prerequisite: CHEM PS/SI1210. Co-requisite: ENGR 2140.
Combined lecture/laboratory course as an introduction to electrical engineering for non-electrical engineers. Fundamentals of DC and AC circuits, digital circuits, and power circuits. Prerequisite: MATH SI1210.
Ohm's law, Kirchoff's laws and network theorems. Power in DC and AC circuits, LRC circuits and Fourier analysis of functions. Prerequisite: MATH SI1220.
Thermodynamic properties, equations of state, first and second laws of thermodynamics. Analysis of open and closed systems, availability and irreversibility, power and refrigeration cycles. Prerequisites: MATH SI1210 and PHYS PS/SI2210.
Combined lecture/laboratory course that introduces the fundamentals of digital circuits; e.g., number systems, codes, combinational logic, etc.
