Term: Spring 2018
Introduction to the engineering profession and the engineering design process. Hands-on experiences that emphasize interdisciplinary teamwork, seeking and defining problems, and developing, fabricating and/or testing solutions. Data analysis and technical communications.
Principles of computer-aided drafting/design; production of engineering drawings including: orthographic, auxiliary, section, pictorials and dimensioning, graphics and charts; applications in specific engineering disciplines.
Diversity in CEMS: under-representation, environmental justice, gender/race participation, ethical considerations, urban planning, equal opportunity, Title IX. Landscape of race/gender in STEM.
Traditional technical and scientific writing forms, including outlines, summaries, abstracts, technical descriptions, research reports/papers and proposals; written and oral technical communication with technical and nontechnical audience; electronic professional portfolio. Prerequisites: ENGS 001; Engineering major.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a digital representation integrating the design tools used by building disciplines under a single parametric computer model. Buildings, facilities and infrastructure are modeled with special attention to mechanical, plumbing, electrical and structural systems. Prerequisite: ENGR 002 or Instructor permission.
Creation of geometric solid representations of physical objects using three dimensional CAD. Introduces parametric design; analysis tools; assembly simulation; dimension methods & standards; tolerances & geometric tolerancing. Further addresses the design for manufacturing of machined parts; sheet metal; mold design. Prerequisite: ENGR 002 or Instructor permission.
Introduces logical and electrical circuit modeling using computer-based virtualization tools in a graphical format. Includes circuit simulation; scripting, interfacing; signal processing; control of instruments and data acquisition. Prerequisite: ENGR 002 or Instructor permission.
Professional responsibilities of computer scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and statisticians in research and practice. Professional rights and responsibilities, research integrity, fair credit in research and publication. Preerquisite: Minimum Senior standing.
