EGSC 110 COMPUTER METHODS

This course introduces students to the personal computer. Topics relating to DOS, word processing, spreadsheets, and databases are followed by programming with FORTRAN. About two-thirds of the course is devoted to FORTRAN. The course also includes technical report writing assignments.

Prerequisite: None

(3: 3, 0) When demand warrants

EGSC 115 COMPUTER-AIDED ENGINEERING DRAWING

This is an introductory course in computer-aided engineering drawing. This course is appropriate for students in any discipline where technical drawings are required, including civil, electrical, mechanical, surveying, and landscaping. The principles of drawing are first taught using sketching, then using Autocad computer graphics software.

Prerequisite: None

(3: 2, 3)

EGSC 120 ENGINEERING MEASUREMENTS LABORATORY I

The first of a two-semester sequence intended specifically for Engineering Science students, this course is designed as an introduction to the engineering profession. Technical measurements concepts are introduced as a foundation for the development of a sense of engineering as both a vocation and a profession. Lab work is complemented with audiovisual materials as well as field trips and presentations by practicing engineers.

Prerequisite: None

(1: 0, 2) Fall

EGSC 130 ENGINEERING MEASUREMENTS LABORATORY II

The second of a two-semester sequence intended specifically for Engineering Science students, this course is designed to continue the introduction to the engineering profession. Upper-division engineering transfer options are revisited, and students use Internet resources to investigate transfer application requirements of one or more four-year engineering programs. General areas of engineering are discussed with illustrations of specific career paths available. Professional engineering registration, canons of conduct, and ethics are studied. Laboratory exercises, field trips, and design contests are undertaken in accordance with opportunity and the interests of students in the course.

Prerequisite: None

(1: 0, 2) Spring

EGSC 210 STATICS

The study of statically determinant systems in equilibrium is the focus of this course. Topics include: the concept of static equilibrium; force systems; free body diagrams; vectors and vector products in two and three dimensions; beams and trusses; load, shear, and moment diagrams for statically determinate beams, trusses, and centroids; and moments and products of inertia.

Prerequisites: MATH 210 and PHYS 210

(3: 3, 0) Fall

EGSC 230 CIRCUIT ANALYSIS I

This is a calculus-based course in engineering circuit analysis including: Ohm's and Kirchoff's laws; nodal and mesh analysis; superposition; source transformation; Thevenin's and Norton's theorems; operational amplifiers; inductance; capacitance; overdamped, critical, and underdamped RLC circuits. Other topics include the Unit-Step and Sinusoidal forcing functions and their response, phasors, and sinusoidal steady-state power calculations. Computer simulation software and hands-on activities are used to strengthen the learning process.

Prerequisite: MATH 215

(3: 3, 0) Fall

EGSC 240 CIRCUIT ANALYSIS II

This course is a continuation of EGSC 230. Topics include: average, effective, and apparent power; single-phase and three-phase wye and delta connections; complex frequency and the s-plane; series and parallel resonance; magnetically coupled circuits; two-port networks; Fourier analysis and transforms; and LaPlace transform techniques.

Prerequisite: EGSC 230

(3: 3, 0) When demand warrants

EGSC 250 DYNAMICS

This course is an extension of EGSC 210 through nonequilibrium systems: displacement, velocity, and acceleration. Methods of kinematics, kinetics, work and energy, and impulse-momentum are examined and applied to particles, systems of particles, and to rigid bodies.

Prerequisite: EGSC 210

(3: 3, 0) Spring

EGSC 260 STRENGTHS OF MATERIALS

This course introduces students to the behavior of material bodies. Topics include mechanical and thermal stress and strain: Mohr's Circle, deflection of beams, indeterminate structures, and analysis of impact loads.

Prerequisite: EGSC 210

(3: 3, 0) Spring
