ENGR 150 Introduction to Engineering 3
Introduction to engineering problem-solving techniques unique to areas of the technical world, including chemical, civil, construction, nuclear, manufacturing, mechanical, and electrical disciplines. Problem solving is presented in both English and International (SI) Units.
ENGR 251 Engineering Mechanics I - Statics 3
Prereq.: ENGR 150 and PHYS 125 and MATH 221 (may be taken concurrently). Engineering vector mechanics of equilibrium (statics), covering force resolution and composition, force moments and couples, and equilibrium equations for analysis. Forces and moments acting on structures and machines, centroids, and moments of inertia are evaluated. Fall.
ENGR 252 Engineering Mechanics II - Dynamics 3
Prereq.: ENGR 251. Engineering vector mechanics of non-equilibrium conditions (dynamics), covering the kinematics of motion and kinetics of particles and rigid bodies. Spring.
ENGR 257 Mechanics of Materials 3
Prereq.: ENGR 251. The analysis of simple and combined stress, torsion, flexure, and deflection of beams, continuous and restrained beams, combines axial and bending loads, and columns. Spring.
ENGR 490 Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) 3
Prereq.: ET or ME senior standing or permission of instructor. Further development of topics included in the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) general exam. Currently, Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection application deadlines are December 1 and July 1, prior to the April and October FE Exam offerings. Spring.
