Engineering Courses in the BSEM and Pre-Engineering Programs

ENGINEERING (ENGR)

1201 Introduction to Engineering A seminar for all levels, with College Algebra as a prerequisite. This course introduces both the engineering program at Incarnate Word and the engineering profession by assigning group projects, inviting guest lecturers, and covering engineering topics in decision analysis and professionalism.

1310 Engineering Graphics The first level course for computer drafting and design; two- and three-dimensional modeling. No prerequisites.

1312 Engineering Design A continuation of Introduction to Engineering. This course would involve project design using AutoCAD drawings and technical writing. Prerequisites — ENGR 1201 and 1310, or permission of instructor

3350 Statics and Dynamics- This class is a three hour lecture. Students will study vector algebra, force systems, and free body diagrams; engineering applications of equilibrium, centroids, and moments of inertia; kinematics and kinetics of particles and plane rigid bodies, work and energy, impulse and momentum, and engineering applications. Prerequisite — PHYS 2305

3455 Mechanics of Materials This four-hour course will include both lecture and lab experiences. Students will study applications of conservation principles and stress/strain relationships. Students will examine effects of loads on structural members.

3460 Electronic Circuitry This four hour course will include both lecture and lab experiences. Students will study the principles electrical networks, electronic circuits, and experimental linear circuit analysis. Prerequisite — PHYS 2306.

4375 Thermodynamics This class is a three hour lecture. Students will study heat, work, the kinetic theory of gases, equations of state, thermodynamic systems, the laws of thermodynamics, reversible and irreversible processes, the conservation of energy, and basic thermodynamic cycles. Prerequisite — PHYS 2305.

4470 Fluid Mechanics This four hour course will include both lecture and lab experiences. Students will study fluid properties, fluid statics, energy and momentum, integral and differential analysis of fluid flow, boundary layers, viscous laminar and turbulent flow in conduits, dimensional analysis, drag and lift. Prerequisite — ENGR 3350, MATH 2314.

4490 Senior Project A capstone course combining management and engineering experience. An original research project would be undertaken, and a public presentation would be given at the end of the semester. Permission of advisor required.
