The students will complete manufacturing projects at an off-campus industry and will learn to manufacture parts according to drawing specifications. The students will become familiar with and safely use an engine lathe, mill, drill press, grinder, precision measuring devices, and metal joining equipment, i.e. welding, while maintaining a safe working environment. Lab fee.

Requisites: MATH 1405, ENGR 1311.

Offered: Spring

ENGR 1311 (3-2-3) Introduction to Engineering Practice I

This course will help the students gain an understanding of what engineers do, including problem-solving and critical thinking. The engineering design process will be taught and reinforced with open-ended labs where the students will design, build, test, and give a written and oral presentation of their project. The students will gain a working knowledge of SolidWorks, improve their communication skills, and be introduced to the different engineering disciplines, engineering societies, safety, and engineering ethics. Lab fee.

Requisites: None.

Offered: Fall.

ENGR 1312 (3-2-3) Introduction to Engineering Practice II

This course is a continuation of ENGR 1311. The students will continue to work in teams on open-ended projects exercising the engineering design process, communications, reporting, decision making, goal setting, project planning, timelines, and project completion according to specifications. The students will present one of their design projects, orally, visually, and through the written word. The students will learn the basics of the Arduino language and will continue to develop problem solving and critical thinking skills. Lab fee.

Requisites: ENGR 1311.

Offered: Spring.

ENGR 2015 (0-1-0) Sophomore Design Seminar

Students will learn the technical skills, soft skills, and crafts that are necessary to complete engineering projects successfully and ethically. Communication, cultural differences, and case studies will be discussed and the elements of each that promoted or detracted from a successful project will be evaluated. Students will learn conceptual and professional skills through visiting culturally diverse field-based industries. This course is taken for credit only and does not affect the student’s GPA (CR/NC).

Requisites: ENGR 1312.

Offered: Spring.
