This course is for engineering majors. Through lectures and hands-on demonstration, the fundamental concepts of electrical circuits including elements like resistors, capacitors and inductors will be discussed. The Ohm’s and Kirchhoff’s laws, nodal and mesh methods are applied in resistive circuits. Other topics of discussion will be network theorems, ideal op-amps, the complete response of first order circuits, complex frequency and phasors, steady-state AC circuits, coupled inductors and ideal transformers. The program like MATLAB and PSpice will be applied for the analysis of an electrical circuit.
This course is an introduction to engineering calculations and problem solving using the computer. Students will learn how to solve and present engineering problems using computer software such as spreadsheets, graphics programs, and database programs. An introduction to engineering design is presented and a small design project will be completed by the students. (2 Lectures, 1 Lab)
Topics include equilibrium of particles and rigid bodies; static analysis of structures including trusses, beams, frames and machines; coulomb friction; area and mass centroids, moments and products of inertia.
This course is an introduction to qualitative, quantitative, and numerical methods for ordinary differential equations. Topics include modeling via differential equations, linear and nonlinear first order differential equations and systems, elementary phase plane analysis, forced oscillations, and Laplace transform techniques.
This course is the first semester of a two-semester sequence that is designed for students in engineering or physical science. The course covers functions; transcendental functions; limits and continuity; derivatives and their applications; and integration theory. Graphing calculators will be used to explore real-life applications.
This course is the second semester of a two-semester sequence. The course covers methods of integration, applications of integration, Taylor’s theorem, infinite sequences and series, and polar coordinates. Graphing calculators will be used throughout the course.
This course covers topics in two and three dimensional geometry. Vectors and their applications. Functions of several variables, contour maps, graphs, partial derivatives, gradients, double and triple integration, vector fields, line integrals, surface integrals, Green's Theorem, Stokes' Theorem, and the Divergence Theorem.
This course is the first semester of a two-semester sequence of calculus-based physics designed for students in engineering or physical science. Topics covered are mechanics (such as motion, Newton’s laws, work, energy, system of particles, and rotational motion), mechanical waves (such as oscillations, wave motion, sound, and superposition), material properties, and fluids.
This course is the second semester of a two-semester sequence of calculus-based physics designed for students in engineering or physical science. Topics covered are electricity and magnetism (such as Coulomb’s law, Gauss’ law, electric fields, electric potential, dc circuits, magnetic fields, Faraday’s law, ac circuits, and Maxwell’s equations) and optics (such as light, geometrical optics, and physical optics).
