ENGR 110-010 STATICS The equilibrium of stationary bodies under the influence of various kinds of forces. Forces, moments, couples, equilibrium, trusses, frames and machines, centroids, moment of inertia, beams and friction. Vector and scalar methods used to solve problems. Prerequisites: MATH 201, PHYS 221. Three hours per week.
ENGR 220-010 MECHANICS OF MATERIALS Study stress and deformation of beams, shafts, columns, tanks, and other structural, machine, and vehicle members. Topics include stress transformation using Mohr's circle, centroids and moments of inertia, shear and bending moment diagrams, derivation of elastic curves, and Euler's buckling formula. Complete a design project related to the material. Prerequisite: ENGR 110. Three hours per week.
PHYS 322-011 DIGITAL ELECTRONICS Study of the basic concepts of digital electronics, with emphasis on modern TTL and CMOS integrated circuits. Topics include gates, combinational and sequential logic circuits, flip-flops, counters, shift registers, multiplexers, decoders and multivibrators. Credit may not be received for both PHYS 322 and COSC 250. Prerequisite: PHYS 223. Three hours lecture, three hours laboratory per week.
PHYS 399-010 INTERMED SPEC TOPICS PHYSICS Study of specific area of physics at the sophomore or junior level. Topic varies semester to semester. May be repeated for up to six credits. Prerequisite: Permission of instructor. One to three hours lecture per week or lab-lecture equivalent.
PHYS 490-030 RESEARCH IN PHYSICS Research project in one of the areas of physics chosen, designed and carried out by student with the advice and approval of a faculty member. Actual work may be carried out at off-campus sites. Written report, seminar presentation required. Prerequisites: PHYS 470 and 40 credits of physics (or senior standing) and department chair approval.
