This course introduces students to engineering as a profession, basic engineering skills, and the design process. The course includes components to develop teaming and oral and written communication skills. The course also provides an introduction to computer tools used by engineers (e.g., spreadsheet, word processing, presentation software, Internet).
This course provides an introduction to manual and computerassisted techniques of graphic communication employed by professional engineers. Topics include lettering; instrumental and computer-aided drafting; technical sketching; orthographic projection; pictorial, sectional, and auxiliary views; and dimensioning. This course also introduces students to the concepts and practices involved in using high-level computer environments to solve engineering problems. Programming environments such as MATLAB will be used.
This course includes vector algebra, force and moment systems, equilibrium of force systems, trusses, friction and property of surfaces.
This course includes kinematics of particles, plane kinematics of rigid bodies, kinetics of particles and rigid bodies by Newton’ s Laws; principles of work-energy and impulse-momentum.
