ENR101 Intro to Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing
ENR103 Introduction to Robotics
ENR105 Circuit Theory and Analysis
ENR106 3D Design and Analysis I
This introductory course explores careers in engineering, architecture, and design. Principles associated with 3D design, visualization, documentation, and product simulation are taught through hands-on use of Computer Aided Design (CAD) modeling software. In addition, student designed parts are fabricated using both additive (3D printing) and subtractive (CNC milling, laser cutting) techniques to enhance the understanding of the design to manufacturing process.
Prerequisite: MAT035 or MAT041, ENL108 or satisfactory basic skills assessment scores
ENR107 3D Design and Analysis II
This is the second of a two course 3D mechanical design series for students interested in careers as product engineers, architects, and designers using computer aided design (CAD) software. This course prepares students for the Certified SolidWorks Associate Exam (CSWA) and the Certified SolidWorks Professional Exam (CSWP). A research paper that addresses an advanced topic in 3D solid modeling is required.
ENR110 Engineering and Scientific Computing
Learn about the branch of applied mathematics concerned with the study of forces and torques, and their effect on motion. The course focuses on kinematics, vector descriptions of a point, vector equations related to velocity and acceleration, Newton’s Law for a particle, angular velocity and acceleration, moment of inertia of a rigid body, parallel axis theorem, work/energy for a particle and a rigid body, and conservation of momentum and angular momentum.
Prerequisite: ENR201; MAT250
ENR204 Circuit Theory I
This is the first of two courses that begin a student’s preparation for a career in electronics and related fields. The course is structured for those interested in expanding their background into the world of electronics. The course focus is on DC and transient electric circuit analysis, use of computer-based circuit simulation, and operational amplifier circuits. Laboratory experiments reinforce course concepts, develop laboratory and measurement skills, and provide system-level understanding.
Prerequisite: MAT250, ENL108 or satisfactory basic skills assessment scores
ENR205 Circuit Theory II
This is the second of two courses that begin a student’s preparation for a career in electronics and related fields. The course is structured for those interested in expanding their background into the world of electronics. The course focus is on AC and polyphase circuit analysis, Laplace and Fourier transforms, the s-Domain, and Bode diagrams.
ENR206 Quality Manufacturing
ENR207 Materials Science
Materials science incorporates elements of physics, chemistry, and engineering and focuses on the structure, processing, and the characteristic limits of various materials. Study of materials science advances understanding of research areas such as nanotechnology, biomaterials, and metallurgy, forensic engineering and failure analysis. The course focuses on structure and characteristics of materials, material defects, testing and failure mechanisms of materials, applications of different materials, and the economic/environmental impact of various materials.
Thermodynamics (a branch of physics) is a study of heat and temperature and their relation to energy and work. The laws of thermodynamics describe how fundamental physical quantities (temperature, energy, and entropy) behave under various circumstances. The course focuses on concepts of thermodynamics, the laws of thermodynamics, work, heat, energy, the Carnot Cycle, energy conservation, enthalpy, specific heat, efficiency, entropy, phase, phase change, heat engines, and heat transfer.
Prerequisite: CHM151 and MAT250
ENR209 Strength of Materials
The study of strength of materials shows the methods of calculating the stresses and strains in structural members such as beams, columns, and shafts. These methods predict the response of a structure when subjected to loading, as well as its susceptibility to various failure modes. The course focuses on types of stresses and strains, thermal effects on material strength, calculation of stresses and strains, normal stress in beams, shear/moment diagrams, and design of simple beams.
