This course is an introduction to the engineering profession and processes used by engineers and technologists. Computer applications are used to demonstrate the problem-solving techniques used by engineers and technologists. This course is designed for the student considering career possibilities in engineering and/or engineering technology. (UC, CSU)
This course is designed to present the principles of orthographic drawing, descriptive geometry applications, and graphical analysis. The student demonstrates documentation of engineering problems using freehand drawing, computer-aided drafting, and three-dimensional modeling. (UC, CSU, CAN ENGR 2)
This course is an introduction to the properties of engineering materials and their relation to the internal structure of materials. Topics include atomic structure and bonding, crystalline structures, phases and phase diagrams, metals, polymers, ceramics, composites, mechanical deformation and fracture, structural control and influence of properties, and materials naming and designating systems as well as exposure to the corrosive, electrical, and magnetic properties of materials. (UC, CSU, CAN ENGR 4)
This course is designed to emphasize the solution of equations arising from the applications of Kirchhoff's Laws and Thevinen's Theorem to direct current (DC) and alternating current (AC) circuits. Topics include mesh and nodal analysis, periodic forcing functions, phasors, frequency response, natural and complete response, dependent sources, and the characteristics of operational amplifiers. Laboratory experiments are used to provide experiences and examples of theoretical concepts covered in the course. (UC, CSU, CAN ENGR 6)
This course is a study of rigid bodies in static equilibrium when acted upon by forces and couples in two-dimensional and three-dimensional space. Included are equilibrium of rigid bodies, trusses, frames, and machines, as well as the calculation of centers of mass, centroids, friction, distributed forces, beams, shear and moment diagrams, and moments of inertia. (UC, CSU, CAN ENGR 8)
This course is study of surveying principles incorporating the use of electronic instrumentation. Applications include computational practices, fieldwork, and project summary work related to measurements (linear and angular, horizontal and vertical), layouts, traverse adjustments, areas, state plane coordinates, boundary surveys, mapping, horizontal curves, vertical curves and earthwork computations. (CSU, CAN ENGR 10)
This course is designed to offer instruction in one of the specialized areas of engineering not already covered by existing curriculum. (CSU)
This course is an introduction to the programming language FORTRAN. The course includes input-output processing, arithmetic calculations, and the use of logical expressions. Computer programs are assigned to assist the student in developing competence in the language. The course is designed primarily for the mathematics or engineering student. (UC, CSU, CAN CSCI 4)
This course is designed to introduce the student to the use of computers to solve a variety of engineering problems. Structured FORTRAN, Language "C", and software applications are utilized. This course includes algorithm development, control structures, array processing, functions and subroutines, roots of equations, and numerical integration of functions. (CSU)
Prerequisites: Completion of two semesters of engineering classes with a grade of "B" or better and presentation of a project acceptable to the instructor and division chairperson.
This course is offered to any student qualified to do advanced work in engineering. Projects and assignments must be arranged and be approved by the instructor and the division chairperson before enrolling in the course. The course may be repeated for a maximum of four units. (CSU)
Limitations on Enrollment: The student must enroll in a course that is directly related to the engineering technologies internship. The student must enroll in a minimum of 7 units during the semester including internship units. For summer session, the student must enroll in one related course in addition to internship. The combined total number of units a student may take in internship, work experience, and occupational practice may not exceed a maximum of 16 units. Participation requites submission and approval of internship program objectives and an employer internship agreement.
This course is designed for the student participating in an occupational internship in engineering technologies. Application of discipline-related skills and knowledge of Secretaries Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills (SCANS) competencies is emphasized. Each student is engaged in a specific research project or on-the-job learning activities under the supervision of a worksite supervisor and a college internship instructor. (CSU)
This course is designed to provide the study of the design, analysis, construction, testing, and documentation of a human-powered vehicle.
This course is designed to offer instruction in one or more of the specialized areas of engineering not already covered by the existing curriculum. Units in this course do not cont toward an associate degree.
