Change an existing course Senior Capstone Design I EML Senior (4xxx) 551

Design courses have been added at the sophomore level that serve as precursors to this course, therefore EGN 2009C Introduction to Engineering is being added as prerequisite. In addition, two courses (EML 3015 Fluids I and EGN 3331 Strength of Materials) at the junior level are being added as prerequisites to ensure students have attained proper depth in the curriculum before attempting the capstone courses.

 

 

 

Change an existing course Material Science I EML Junior (3xxx) 520C

The course prefix and number is being changed from "EML 3520 Materials Science I" to "EMA 3010 Introduction to Materials Science and Engineering" to match other programs in the SUS for consistency,as well as ease of transfer of credits within the SUS. The C is being removed for similar reasons and the fact that formal lab activities have been removed from the course.

 

 

 

Change an existing course Introduction to Engineering I EGN Freshman (1xxx) 001

There are significant lab activities associated with the active learning in this course. Addition of the "C" designation captures this fact, and helps to justify the lab components assigned with different sections of the course. There will be no change in the credit hours associated with the course.

 

 

 

Change an existing course Introduction to Engineering II EGN Sophomore (2xxx) 009

The "C" designation is being added due to the large portion of the course dedicated to active learning based design activities. This is further justified by the different sections of the course defined by their different lab meeting times. There will be no change in the credit hours associated with this course.

 

 

 

 

Change an existing course Senior Capstone Design I CGN Senior (4xxx) 803

EGN2009C Introduction to Engineering II is being added as an additional prerequisite to CGN 4803 Senior Capstone Design I. The introduction to engineering course employs design methodology and techniques that serve as a precursor to the content in CGN 4803 Senior Capstone Design I.

 

 

 

 

Change an existing course Senior Capstone Design I EEL Senior (4xxx) 914

EGN2009C Introduction to Engineering II is being added as an additional prerequisite to EEL 4914 Senior Capstone Design I. The introduction to engineering course employs design methodology and techniques that serve as a precursor to the content in EEL 4914 Senior Capstone Design I. 

 

 

 

Add a new course Materials Selection (3 crs) EMA Senior (4xxx) XXX

Prerequisites:    
"EMA3010: Introduction to Materials Science and Engineering"
Co-requisites:    
None

Course Description:

This course exposes students to an algorithm for proper materials selection that will guide them in design activities. The course focuses on the assessment of the demands of specific design criteria including, but not limited to mechanical properties, corrosion, interaction with the service environment as well as economic and social factors.

 

 

 

Add a new course Materials Characterization (3 crs) EMA Senior (4xxx) XXX

Prerequisites:    
"EMA3010: Introduction to Materials Science and Engineering" 
Co-requisites:
    
None

Course Description:

The analysis of crystal structures, microstructures and chemical composition are presented. Students will learn the physical principles behind optical microscopy, electron and x-ray diffraction and electron microscopy for the purpose of indentifying materials as assessing their properties.

 

 

 

Add a new course Problem Solving and Continuous Improvement Methods for Engineers (3 crs) EGN Senior (4xxx) XXX

Prerequisites:    
"EGN2009: Introduction to Engineering"
AND "STA3032: G(M) Prob/Statistics for Engrs"
Co-requisites:    
None

Course Description:

Application of problem identification, solution development and continuous improvement methods to real-life problems from community by using engineering tools and concepts is presented. Projects entail root cause analysis, developing multiple solutions and selection as well as implementation of the best solution for the needs of the client.

Change an existing course Model/Analysis Dynamic Systems EML Senior (4xxx) 312

It is requested to add EEL 3111 as a prerequisite. Electro-mechanical systems are covered in this course and the students should have the additional electrical engineering background. No other changes are requested.
