EGR 101 - Engineering Graphics  (IAI: EGR 941) (3, 6)

A college transfer course; consult the Transfer Center for more details.
Prerequisite: Completion or concurrent enrollment in one of the following: MTH 100, 106, 165, 167, 190

This course is designed to give the student the basics of engineering graphics as required by the profession. The primary tool of the course is Mechanical Desktop, and students learn how to create orthographic, sectional and auxiliary views of various parts and components. Students are introduced to the software as a tool through a "problem solving" approach and are taught CAD commands needed to solve various drawing problems. Emphasis is placed upon proper drawing techniques, views and dimensioning.  Fee.

EGR 201 - Electrical Circuits (4, 5)

A college transfer course; consult the Transfer Center for more details.
Prerequisite: MTH 203; MTH 205 concurrent

Introductory circuit analysis including Kirchoffs Laws, nodal and loop analysis, equivalent circuits, operational amplifiers and magnetically coupled circuits. Transient and steady state analysis of R, L, and C networks with DC, sinusoidal, and non-sinusoidal forcing functions under zero and non-zero initial conditions. Frequency response of networks, Bode plots, and polyphase circuits are also studied, along with computer based circuit simulation.  Fee.

EGR 205 - Engineering: Statics and Dynamics  (IAI: EGR 944) (5, 5)

A college transfer course; consult the Transfer Center for more details.

Topics to be studied include particle statics, general principles and force vectors, rigid body equilibrium, moments of inertia, distributed forces and centroids, analysis of structures, virtual work, friction, particle kinematics (rectilinear and curvilinear), Newtons laws, energy; work, and momentum methods; planar dynamics and rigid bodies rigid body kinematics; impulse and momentum; and vibrations.
