Hours: M-Th 4:00-4:30 p.m., F 12-3:00 p.m.
Introduction to Engineering (ENGI 110)
This course introduces the major engineering disciplines, engineering decision-making and ethics, and factors for success in academic and professional settings. It provides general knowledge of engineering design, communications, problem solving, fundamental physical concepts, and computational engineering tools. Presents the relationship of engineering to materials, the environment, and mathematics. Speakers, field trips and classroom activities expose students to the many ways engineering affects our lives and the variety of roles of engineers in society. Recommended for both technical and non-technical majors. CSU and UC transferrable. 3 units.
Engineering Graphics & Design (ENGI 122)
Introduction to the engineering design process and graphical communications tools used by engineers. The fundamentals of orthographic projection, pictorial sketching, dimensioning and tolerancing, and their application in the solution of engineering problems. Use of the computer-aid design package, and AutoCAD, as an analysis, design and documentation tool. CSU and UC transferrable. 4 units.
Properties of Materials (ENGI 240)
This is an introductory course on the properties of engineering materials and how their overall properties relate to internal structure. Topics include: atomic structure and bonding; crystal structure; phases and phase diagrams; properties (mechanical, electrical, magnetic, optical) and structure of metals, polymers, ceramics and composites; mechanical deformation and fracture; taxonomy systems; corrosion and processing methods. Prerequisites: CHEM 120, PHYS 140. CSU and UC transferrable. 4 units.
Engineering Mechanics: Statics (ENGI 241)
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. Topics include analysis of 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. Prerequisites: PHYS 140, MATH 121. CSU and UC transferrable. 3 units.
Circuits 1 (ENGI 242)
An introductory course in teh analysis of linear circuits containing resistors, inductors, capacitors, independent and dependent voltage, and current sources. Analysis techniques are developed from Kirchoff's network theorems and include node and loop methods, superposition and source transformations. Thevenin's and Norton's theorems are applied to DC and AC circuits. Differential equations are used to find transient response. Periodic waveform analysis including evaluation of average and rms values. AC analysis techniques including sinusoids and phasors, the concept of impedance, frequency response, and resonance. Use of simulation software, ideal operational amplifiers and transformers, approximations at high and low frequencies, impedance matching, and three-phase circuits. Prerequisites: PHYS 240, MATH 221. CSU and UC transferrabale. 4 units.
Selected Topics in Engineering (ENGI 298)
Topics in General Engineering and various Engineering disciplines, such as Engineering Computer Science, Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Biological Engineering etc., not covered by regular catalog offerings. Course offerings will be based on community/student or program-interest and need. Course content and unit credit to be determined by selected topic. May be offered in a seminar, lecture, or lecture/laboratory format as appropriate. CSU transferrable. 1 to 3 units.
Independent Study in Engineering (ENGI 199)
Study an area of engineering of special interest to the student. May include advanced studies and projects begun in other engineering course or engineering related studies not normally included in formal course work. CSU transferrable. 1 to 3 units.
