This introductory course in graphical drawing and blueprint interpretation includes orthographic projections, pictorials, lettering, scales, basic dimensioning, blueprint reading plus interpretation of documents related to blueprints such as construction contract documents, specifications and addendum, emphasizing commercial and industrial building construction. Laboratory time includes practice with basic drafting techniques.
This course provides familiarization with computer-aided drafting techniques using an interactive microcomputer CAD system. Students create, edit and store basic drawings using a tablet digitizer and/or screen menu consisting of geometric forms and alphanumeric characters. Laboratory included. Prerequisites: strongly recommend basic computer knowledge.
This course provides a continuation of the topics introduced in ENGR 105 with an emphasis on basic customization. Topics include configuration profiles, script files, user-created menus, slide files, attribute creation and extraction, 3-D construction, and solid modeling. Laboratory included. Prerequisites: ENGR 105 or equivalent.
Fundamental concepts, techniques, and applications of risk analysis and risk-informed decision making for engineering students. An introduction to lock-out tag procedures, electrical arc flash protection, personal protection equipment (PPE) safety gear, and hands-on safety training.
Principles of engineering statics including basic concepts, resultants, force-couple relationships, equilibrium diagrams, equilibrium analysis, three-dimensional structures, two-dimensional frames, trusses, beams and friction. Prerequisites: MATH& 152, PHYS& 222 or equivalent, or instructor's permission.
Students will learn the foundations for field survey techniques with field labs using methods and tools such as a total station and leveling equipment.  The course covers the Professional Land Survey System along with how to establish and adjust control and conduct field survey to produce a topographic map.
Issues and case studies of policy development, strategy, planning and management of technology in the overall corporate environment. Including understanding of LEAN manufacturing principles.
Crystal structure, microstructure, and physical properties of metals, ceramics, polymers, composites, and amorphous materials. Also includes elementary mechanical behavior and phase equilibria.
The mechanics of materials emphasizing the analysis and design of statically determinate beams, columns, and structural members in torsion and application of the three moment equations to statically indeterminate beams.
A course in fluid mechanics. Topics include: fluid properties, hydrostatics, conservation laws, infinitesimal and finite control volume analysis, Navier-Stokes equations, dimensional analysis, internal and external flows. Students will build upon knowledge gained in ENGR 325 and analyze, troubleshoot, predict and problem-solve complex structures.
Modeling and analysis of dynamic systems and introduction to feedback control. Topics include dynamic modeling and response of mechanical, electrical, fluid, and thermal systems; and feedback control systems analysis. Students will build upon skills learned in the sequence of courses that will allow them to draw conclusions about complex problems and provide solutions.

Analysis of hydraulic control components and systems. Topics include pumps, valves, actuators, and industrial and mobile control systems.

Design of systems which require the integration of mechanical and electronic components. Topics include microcontrollers, sensors, actuators, mechanical systems, real time control system programming, and modeling of electronic and mechanical systems.
Safety and health in the manufacturing, construction, and utilities industries, including pertinent laws, codes, regulations, standards, and product liability considerations. Organizational and administrative principles and practices for safety management and safety engineering, accident investigation, safety education, and safety enforcement.
Prepare and plan for capstone project.

Supervised on-the-job training with a manufacturer, processor, or related industrial firm. Students will need a letter of recommendation and faculty director permission.

Students can choose projects in electronics, renewable energy systems, wireless/data communications and automation/robotics. Typical project activities include the research and design phase, the execution phase, and the project report phase. A written report and oral presentation is required.
