Students read, discuss, and write essays that explore contemporary social issues. Students work on skills necessary to meet the challenge of writing accurately and clearly on the college level. Students write a minimum of eight essays, including three in-class essays. Emphasis is on the development of a topic, use of appropriate rhetoric and research, and a review of grammar. At the end of the semester, students must take a writing competency test, which is evaluated by a panel of instructors and constitutes 25% of students' final grade for the course. Prerequisite: Placement by test or completion of ENG 081 with a grade of C or better. A grade of C or better must be earned for advancement to ENG 102.
Students read and discuss literature that explores the human condition and its moral dilemmas, social problems, and values. This course continues to stress the development of writing skills, with emphasis on criticism, analysis, research methods, and documentation. A research paper is required. Prerequisite: Completion of ENG 101 with a grade of C or better. Prerequisite or corequisite: LIB 111.
Students study authors and works ranging from the Classical era to early Medieval times. Extensive writing, with emphasis on analysis and other rhetorical forms, is a major component of the course.

This course has been designed with Early Education English majors (1-6) in mind, but it is also open to all English Education majors and as an elective to students outside the discipline. The primary focus of the course is to critically examine selected titles from the Newbery Medal and Honor Book list. In addition to the Newbery titles, special consideration will be given to classics of children's literature from the Victorian period to the modern period. Class discussions will focus on the social and literary implications of children's literature, literary technique and content, and the role of fantasy in children's literature. Prerequisites: ENG 102 with a grade of C or better and LIB 111 or by permission of instructor.
An introduction to technical writing, this course considers the problems of presenting technical subject matter and provides instruction and practice in report writing and oral presentations. Prerequisite: ENG 102 with a C or better or A.A.S. program requirement or permission of the instructor. Prerequisite or corequisite: LIB 111.
The student will have the opportunity to do independent research and study in the area of English. The work will be done with the guidance of an instructor from the Department of English and Philosophy with written approval of the Department Chairperson. Open only for sophomores for not more than two semesters.
Students are introduced to engineering design through a series of projects involving 3D modeling and 3D printing. While students will learn some CAD specific skills, the emphasis of the course is on the design process: define the problem, propose multiple solutions, develop the solutions, realize a prototype, test, and refine the design. Clear communication of specifications and solutions will be emphasized. This course is targeting engineering majors but is also designed for other majors who would like to work on interdisciplinary projects.

Clear communication of specifications and solutions will b emphasized. This course is targeting engineering majors but is designed for other majors who would like to work on interdisciplinary projects. Prerequisite: MAT 115.
Topics in this course include element and interconnection laws, network theorems, circuit equations and methods of solution (branch equations, Kirchoff's Law, node and mesh equations, and Norton and Thevenin equivalents), transient and steady state responses, frequency response, resonance phenomena, and power. Basic solid-state electronic circuits are introduced (two-port and three-port elements). 3 hrs. lect. This course includes a 1 hr. lab (ENR 218) which is required for computer engineering and electrical engineering majors and optional for all others. Corequisites: PHY 110 and MAT 180 or by advisement.
Both the classical and vector approaches in the application of physics to practical engineering analysis are featured in this course. Students learn the principles of static equilibrium of rigid bodies. Topics include force systems, couples, first- and second-moments, centroids, friction, and free body diagrams. Application areas include trusses, frames, machines, cables, and other structures. 3 hrs. lect. Prerequisites: PHY 109 and MAT 180.
Students learn the application of physics (statics) and materials science theory to the analysis and design of structural members. The principles of axial, shear, and torsional stresses, shear flow, bending stress, and combined stresses are covered. Shear and bending moment characteristics are related to the flexural formula, including such tools as the moment-area method and the three-moment theorem. Design of pressure vessels, columns, and other systems is emphasized. 3 hrs. lect. Prerequisite: MAT 180. Corequisite: ENR 215.
This is a one-semester hour laboratory in support of ENR 208. The laboratory is required for computer engineering and electrical engineering majors and optional for all other students.
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.
Designed for the non-science major, this course provides an introduction to the over 3.5 billion-year history of life on planet Earth as preserved in the geologic record. This course will examine the origin of life on Earth, how life on Earth has changed dramatically through time by the mechanism of evolution, the influence of plate tectonics and other geologic forces on the evolution of life, how organisms are preserved as fossils in sedimentary rocks, famous fossil localities, and the impact of mass extinction events in the geologic record. This course includes a Saturday field trip. 3 hrs. lect.
