2014 Spring

  • ENGR 100-010 INTRO TO ENGINEERING DESIGN
    Introduction to the art and science of engineering design. Students work in teams to design, manufacture, assemble and test a product. Examples of products include a postal scale, solar cooker and human-powered water pumping systems. CAD and modeling software will also be used. Four hours lecture/activity per week.
  • ENGR 232-010 THERMODYNAMICS
    Introduction to the principles of thermodynamics and thermodynamic properties of matter. Topics include the first and second laws of thermodynamics, heat, work, temperature, entropy, enthalpy, cycles, reactions, mixtures, energy balances, and mass balances. A design project related to the material is given. Prerequisites: C or better in ENGR 110, MATH 202, PHYS 225. Three hours per week.
  • ENGR 331-010 FLUID MECHANICS
    Introduction to the principles of fluid mechanics. Topics include mass, momentum and energy conservation, hydrostatics, control volume analysis, internal and external flow, boundary layers, and modern measurement techniques. A design project related to the material is given. Prerequisites: C or better in ENGR 221, MATH 310 and PHYS 225. Four hours lecture/activity per week.
  • PHYS 399-040 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 475-040 CAPSTONE DESIGN PROJECT
    Application of classroom learning to a real-world problem. Projects involve application of electronics and computers: e.g. robotics, CAD/CAM, microcontrollers, environmental monitoring, DSP, ASIC design, microwave and communication circuits, mechatronics and process control. Prerequisite: PHYS 413 and 470, or permission of instructor.
  • PHYS 490-040 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.
  • PHYS 499-010 SPECIAL TOPICS IN PHYSICS
    Study of a specific advanced area of physics. Topic varies semester to semester. May be repeated for up to six credits. Prerequisites: Senior standing and department chair approval. One to three hours lecture per week or lab-lecture equivalent.

2014 Fall

  • 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 322-010 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.
