Engineering (ENGR)

Courses

The following Engineering courses are offered:

ENGR 303
Introduction to Logic Design 4 Units
Prerequisite: None
Advisory: Some previous exposure to programming at the high school level or above.
Course Transferable to CSU
Hours: 54 hours LEC; 54 hours LAB
This is an introductory course in the fundamentals of designing digital computer hardware. This course covers: logic gates, binary number system, conversion between number systems, Boolean algebra, Karnaugh maps, combinational logic, digital logic design, flip-flops, programmable logic devices (PLDs), counters, registers, memories, state machines, designing combinational logic and state machines into PLDs, and basic computer architecture. The lab is design oriented and emphasizes the use of software equation entry tools, schematic entry, and logic simulation tools. Lab assignments are design oriented. This course is required for Electrical/Electronics Engineering and Computer Engineering majors at some universities. This course is also helpful for Computer Science majors, electronics technicians, and for students wishing to sample computer engineering.

ENGR 312

Engineering Graphics 3 Units
Prerequisite: None
Advisory: MATH 110
Course Transferable to UC/CSU
Hours: 36 hours LEC; 72 hours LAB
This course applies the graphical tools needed to analyze, interpret, and solve engineering problems. The engineering design process is taught using manual tools and computer-aided design and drafting (CADD) tools to solve typical engineering problems. Topics include descriptive geometry, vector graphics, orthogonal projection, primary and secondary auxiliary views, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T), 3D solid modeling, and an introduction to finite element analysis (FEA) tools. This course is intended for mechanical and civil engineering majors, but may also be required for other programs.

ENGR 400

Introduction to Electrical Circuits
and Devices 3 Units
Prerequisite: PHYS 421 with a grade of "C" or better
Corequisite: MATH 420
Course Transferable to UC/CSU
Hours: 54 hours LEC
This course will provide engineering students with circuit analysis concepts and applications that will be of value in any engineering field as well as a solid foundation for electrical engineering and related majors. The course includes the analysis of circuits with resistors, inductors, capacitors, and independent and dependent voltage and current sources. Many analysis techniques will be applied to DC and AC circuits. Differential equations will be used to find the transient response of circuits. Power calculations will be performed on both DC and AC circuits, including an introduction to three-phase AC power. This course is required for most engineering Bachelors of Science degrees.

ENGR 420

Statics 3 Units
Prerequisite: MATH 401 and PHYS 411 with grades of "C" or better
Course Transferable to UC/CSU
Hours: 54 hours LEC
This is the first course in engineering mechanics. Topics in this course include two and three dimensional force system analysis using vector techniques, moments and couples in two and three dimensions, centroids and moment of inertia, friction, forces in beams, and truss analysis. This course is required for mechanical, civil, aeronautical engineering transfer students and by some electrical engineering programs.

ENGR 495

Independent Studies in Engineering 1-3 Units
Prerequisite: None
Course Transferable to CSU
Hours: 54-162 hours LAB

ENGR 499

Experimental Offering in Engineering .5-4 Units
Prerequisite: None
Course Transferable to CSU
Hours: 18 hours LEC; 54 hours LAB
