This course covers the use of the personal computer as an analysis tool in engineering calculations. Students will study internal data representation (binary, hexadecimal, and ASCII codes), structured algorithm design, and numerical analysis methods. Vector operations and matrix manipulation will be emphasized. Class assignments will consist of writing code statements in higher-level languages to instruct the PC to solve particular problems. The principles of compilers, branching, recursive programs, functions, subroutines, and global storage are included.
The availability, characteristics, and physical properties of various materials commonly used in industry-ferrous and nonferrous metals and nonmetals (polymers and ceramics), such as wood, plastics, glass, rubber, and masonry-are covered in this course. Students also review current developments in the field of materials. The laboratory covers destructive and nondestructive testing of materials, including tension, compression, torsion, and deflection. Laboratory work includes micro- and macro-examinations of materials and tests of ductility, hardness, impact, stress, and strain by various methods. 2 hrs. lect.; 3 hrs. lab. Prerequisite: CHE 101 or CHE 103.
This course covers the fundamentals of digital logic. Students will study combinational and sequential circuits. Karnaugh maps and Boolean algebra will be covered as ways of simplifying logic circuits. Feedback will be used to introduce gates with memory such as various types of flip flops and latches. Throughout the course there will be an emphasis on grouping together fundamental building blocks (NAND, NOR, etc.) into higher level componenets such as registers, adders and multiplexers. The laboratory will focus on the design and construction of digital circuits. Prerequisites: MAT 170 and ENR 110 or CSC 150.
The application of physics to the analysis of moving particles, systems of particles, and rigid bodies is covered in this course. Students learn the principles of kinematics and kinetics using classical Newtonian laws as applied to practical engineering analysis. Topics include force systems, inertia, acceleration, work-and-energy, and the relationship of impulse and momentum. 3 hrs. lect. Prerequisite: ENR 215.
Designed for the non-science major, this course provides an introduction to Earth Science through an examination of the Earth's atmosphere and oceans. Topics covered include the Earth-Sun system, the structure and composition of the Earth's atmosphere, global circulation patterns, severe weather, global climate change, physical oceanography, shoreline processes, and the seafloor and plate tectonics. This course may not be taken for credit by students who take GEG 101. 3 hrs. lect.
This course provides an introduction to minerals and rocks, plate tectonics, earthquakes, volcanism, the geologic processes by which water, wind and ice slowly sculpt the Earth's landscape and a broad survey of the evolution of planet Earth over its 4.6 billion-year geologic history. An optional field trip may be offered. This course is designed for non-science majors. Students who have previously passed ESC 104, or students presently enrolled in ESC 104 may not take this course.
This course is an introduction to historical geology and a study of the origin and evolution of the Earth through geologic time. Topics covered include the geologic time scale; radioactive dating; sedimentary rocks and stratigraphy; fossils and the evolutions of life; the origin of the Earth's atmosphere, oceans, and lithosphere; plate tectonic processes; and a survey of significant geological and biological events during Earth's 4.6 billion-year history. In the laboratory, students study invertebrate fossils, learn to identify and correlate sedimentary rock formations, and study sedimentary rocks and fossils in the field. This course includes several local field trips during regular lab time and a Saturday field trip. Prerequisite:ESC 102 or ESC 104 or permission of the instructor.
