GENERAL ENGINEERING (ENGR)
Office: 112 H. M. Comer Hall
ENGR 111 Engineering the Future. 1 hour.
An introduction to the discipline of engineering and what the future of the field will involve. Focus is on developing and understanding of the discipline, the contributions that the discipline will make to society in the future, and career opportunities for students in the field.
Introductory course for students in all engineering disciplines that provide the basic skills required for engineering with an emphasis on problem solving, teaming, oral and written technical communication, and the design project.
A second course for students in all engineering disciplines that reinforces the basic skills required for engineering with an emphasis on design, problem solving, teaming, and technical communication.
An introduction to the fundamental principles of graphic and visual communication. Focus is on the ability to use sketching as an effective communication tool within the field of engineering.
Use of a commercial software package to produce three-dimensional representations of mechanical devices. Two-dimensional representations of multiviews, sections, and auxiliaries will be generated.
Use of a commercial software package to produce engineering drawings such as multiviews, sections and auxiliaries, isometric and oblique pictorials, dimensional drawings, as well as simple topographical and property drawings, with an emphasis on large-scale applications.
Probability and basic statistical concepts; random variables; discrete and continuous distributions; sampling distributions; inferences concerning means; simple regression and correlation. Experiments demonstrating probabilistic and statistical concepts are conducted.
Hypothesis testing, multiple regression and correlation analysis; analysis of variance; applications in quality assurance and reliability. Experiments demonstrating the use of statistical methods are conducted.
Not open to students with credit for GES 255. Not available for MSIE degree credit. Probability and basic statistical concepts. Discrete and continuous distributions; the central limit theorem; sampling distributions; point and interval estimation; hypothesis testing; regression and correlation analysis; analysis of variance.
Not open to students with credit for IE 363. Not available for MSIE degree credit. Model construction, linear programming, network models, dynamic models, stochastic models, queuing theory, and decision theory.
GES 418 Engineering Management. 3 hours.
Prerequisite: Junior standing.
An introduction to management principles, and the management functions of planning, organizing, motivating, and controlling. Management of research, design, manufacturing, and quality will be studied.
Determinants and matrix algebra, linear simultaneous equations, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, matrix functions, computer techniques, vector algebra and calculus, and integral theorems.
DR 135 Construction Drawing. (2-4) 3 hours.
Introduction to the graphic language used by the construction industry. Covers architectural plans, elevations, sections, and pictorials, executed by freehand sketches, instrument drawings, and computer-aided drawings.
DR 350 Construction Materials and Systems. (2-0) 2 hours.
Prerequisite: DR 131.
Study of materials and systems used in residential and commercial construction. Covers the properties of these materials and their assembly.
Use of AutoCAD software to produce two-dimensional architectural drawings such as floor plans, elevations, sections, and details. Explores three-dimensional views and presentation techniques.
Assigned graphics problem(s) supervised on an individual basis.
