Electrical Track

Computer Software Track


This program aims to prepare prospective engineering students to make an informed decision in choosing their engineering option (Civil, Mechanical, Computer Software, Electrical and etc.). Students can choose to first complete all the courses that are common to most engineering options and then choose from electives that are discipline specific.
The four tracks that you may choose to pursue are:

  • Mechanical, Aerospace, Manufacturing Engineering
  • Civil Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Computer Software Engineering
Engineering Student with a Small Robot

Prerequisite: None
Lecture: 2 hrs

Students learn about the engineering method and strategies for academic and career success in engineering. Students are introduced to mechanical, civil, electrical, and computer systems engineering through project work. The vast range disciplines and opportunities in engineering are presented. Students are guided through challenging design exercises to develop skills in planning, communication, team working, and creativity. Only basic mathematics skills are required

Prerequisite: PHYSICS 037
Lecture: 3 hrs

This engineering course covers how to apply vector analysis of forces and moments to determine the equilibrium conditions in trusses, frames, and machines. It also covers center of mass, centroids, friction, and moment of inertia.

Prerequisite: CHEM 101 and PHYSICS 037
Lecture: 3 hrs

This engineering course covers how the properties of materials are related to atomic and crystal structure and how processing influences structure and hence properties. Topics include atomic structure and bonding; crystalline structures; phases and phase diagrams; metals; polymers; ceramics; composites; mechanical deformation, fracture, electrical, and magnetic properties.

Prerequisite: PHYSICS 038
Corequisite: MATH 275
Lecture: 3 hrs
Lab: 3 hrs

Students learn the theory of circuit analysis and practice its application to areas of importance in electrical analysis in time and frequency domains, transient, and steady state solutions. Topics include linear circuit analysis techniques, Kirchhoff’s Laws, Network Theorems, mesh and nodal analysis, OP amps and amplifiers, Thevenin/Norton equivalents circuits, natural-forced-complete response of RLC circuits and Laplace Transforms. Introduction to AC circuits, phasors, three phase power, and frequency response and resonance. The laboratory includes experimental verification of the laws of AC and DC circuits, Kirchhoff’s laws, and Thevenin’s theorem using instruments such as multimeter, oscilloscopes, and signal generators.

Advisory: MATH 121
Lecture: 2 hrs
Lab: 2 hrs

This course covers the principles of engineering drawings in visually communicating engineering designs and an introduction to computer-aided design (CAD). Topics include the development of visualization skills; orthographic projections; mechanical dimensioning and tolerancing practices; and the engineering design process. Assignments develop sketching and 2-D and 3-D CAD skills. The use of CAD software is an integral part of the course.

Prerequisite: EGD TEK 101
Lecture: 2 hrs
Lab: 2 hrs

This is an introductory course in Three-Dimensional Computer-Aided Design and solid modeling. Students learn the concept of creating parts by using features including extrusion, revolve, sweep and loft boss, base, and cut. Other topics covered include creating assemblies and making drawing files out of the solid model or the assembly, utilizing SolidWorks 3-D software.
