School of Engineering/Electrical Engineering (Undergraduate)


Change a degree-major of an existing program

BS in Electrical Engineering - Electrical Engineering Major


Summary of the changes:

The EE Program is cleaning up co-requisites for several laboratory courses. Currently for several of the courses, the course lists the laboratory section as a co-requisite and the laboratory section lists the course as a co-requisite for the course. Having both the course and laboratory section listed as co-requisites prevents students from enrolling in both without an adviser override. In order to correct this, for all courses only the laboratory section will be listed with the course as a co-requisite. This will allow students to enroll in the course without the laboratory, but not in the laboratory without enrolling in the course. Details of the changes are:

 

  • EEE 4309 (Microelectronics II) - Removing EEE 4309L (Electronics Lab) as a co-requisite
  • EEL 3701 (Introduction to Digital Systems) - Removing EEL 3701L (Introduction to Digital Systems Lab) as a co-requisite
  • EEL 4657 (Linear Control Systems) - Removing EEL 4657L (Linear Control Systems Lab) as a co-requisite
  • EEL 4712 (Digital Design) - Removing EEL 4712L (Digital Design Lab) as a co-requisite
  • EEL 4713 (Digital Computer Architecture) - Removing EEL 4713L (Digital Computer Architecture Lab) as a co-requisite

 

The changes do not affect the total credit hours for the degree with remains at 128.

School of Engineering/Mechanical Engineering (Undergraduate)


 Change a degree-major of an existing program

Bachelor of Science - Mechanical Engineering Major

 

Summary of the changes:

This package updates the BS Mechanical Engineering curriculum. The total credits required for the degree will remain unchanged at 128. As part of this update, the following changes to the curriculum have occurred:


Course Name Change

  • Changed the name of “EML4304L Fluid Mechanics Lab (1 credit hr)” to “EML4304L Thermal Sciences Laboratory I (1 credit hr)” to better describe this laboratory course sequence. The course description was updated to reflect these changes.
  • Changed the name of “EML4004L Energy Systems Laboratory (1 credit hr)” to “EML4004L Thermal Sciences Laboratory II (1 credit hr)” to better describe this laboratory course sequence. The course description was updated to reflect these changes.

Removal of corequisite

  • Removed “EML4304L Thermal Sciences Laboratory I (1 credit hr)” as a corequisite for “EML 3015 Fluids (3 credit hr)”. “EML 3015 Fluids (3 credit hr)” is already a corequisite for “EML4304L Thermal Sciences Laboratory I (1 credit hr)”. The double corequisite was causing issues when students registered.
  • Removed “EML4004L Thermal Sciences Laboratory II (1 credit hr)” as a corequisite for “EML 4140 Heat Transfer (3 credit hr)”. “EML 4140 Heat Transfer (3 credit hr)” is already a corequisite for “EML4004L Thermal Sciences Laboratory II (1 credit hr)”. The double corequisite was causing issues when students registered.

Removal of prerequisite

  • Removed “EGN1001C Introduction to Engineering I (2 credit hr)” as a prerequisite to “EML3535C Modern Engineering CAD (2 credit hr)”. The knowledge from “EGN1001C Introduction to Engineering I (2 credit hr)” is no longer required for “EML3535C Modern Engineering CAD (2 credit hr)”.
Added prerequisite(s)
  • Added “MAP2302 Differential Equations (3 credit hr)” as a prerequisite to “EML3015 Fluids (3 credit hr)”. This prerequisite ensures the students have the necessary knowledge for the course.
  • Added “MAC2311 Calculus I (3 credit hr)” as a prerequisite to “EMA3010 Introduction to Materials Science and Engineering (3 credit hr)”. This prerequisite ensures the students have the necessary knowledge for the course.
  • Added “EGN1001C Introduction to Engineering I (2 credit hr)” as a prerequisite to “EML4320C Integrated Design and Manufacturing (3 credit hr)”. This prerequisite ensures the students have the necessary knowledge for the course.
  • Add “EGN3321 Dynamics (3 credit hr)” as a prerequisite to “EML4140 Heat Transfer (3 credit hr).” The knowledge in “EGN 3321 Dynamics (3 credit hr)” is required for “EML4140 Heat Transfer (3 credit hr)”.
  • Add “EGN3203 Modeling and Analysis of Dynamic Systems (3 credit hr)” and “EGN3321 Dynamics (3 credit hr)” as prerequisites to “EML 4551 Senior Capstone Design 1 (3 credit hr)”. These additional prerequisites ensure the students have the necessary knowledge for their senior capstone project.
Added a corequisite
  • Added “EGN1001C Introduction to Engineering I (2 credit hr)” as a corequisite to “EML3100 Thermodynamics I (3 credit hr)”. This is to ensure that only engineering students are taking this engineering course.
Change of prerequisite/corequisite
  • For “EML4622 Clean and Renewable Energy (3 credit hr)”, the corequisites of “EML3015 Fluids (3 credit hr)” and “EML4140 Heat Transfer (3 credit hr)” were removed and the prerequisites of “EML3015 Fluids (3 credit hr)” and “EML3101 Thermodynamics II (3 credit hr)” were added. This change was done to ensure the students had the necessary knowledge for the course.
  • For “EGN4042 Problem Solving and Continuous Improvement Methods for Engineers (3 credit hr)” removed “EGN 2009C Introduction to Engineering II (1-2 credit hr)” as a prerequisite and added “EGN1001C Introduction to Engineering I (2 credit hr)” as a prerequisite. This change was due to “EGN 2009C Introduction to Engineering II (1-2 credit hr)” no longer being offered as a required course for engineering.
Course removal

 

  • Remove the 3 credit hour course “EML4126: Transport Phenomena (3 credit hr)”. Add some of the content from “EML4126: Transport Phenomena (3 credit hr)” to the course “EML4140 Heat Transfer (3 credit hr)”. The course description for “EML4140 Heat Transfer (3 credit hr)” was updated to reflect these changes. This change was done to align with the other Florida state schools and to streamline the thermal science course sequence.

Course addition for graduation

  • An additional 3 credit hour technical elective (3 credit hr) will be required for graduation, to replace the removal of 3 credit hours from “EML4126: Transport Phenomena (3 credit hr)”. The total credits required for the degree will remain unchanged at 128.

Changed course descriptions:

  • EMA3010 Introduction to Materials Science and Engineering (3 credit hr)
Changed: Removed reference to laboratory since this is a lecture-based course. Expanded on the lecture topics covered in the class.
  • EML4304L: Thermal Sciences Laboratory I (1 credit hr)
Changed: The description was updated to reflect the topics that would be covered within the first course in the thermal science laboratory sequence. The difference between the current description and the previous one is that the explanation of content in the new description is more explicit. The same content has been covered in the courses previously, so it is indeed the same course, but without explicit detailed call out in the descriptions.
  • EML4004L: Thermal Sciences Laboratory II (1 credit hr)
Changed: The description was updated to reflect the topics that would be covered within the second course in the thermal science laboratory sequence. The difference between the current description and the previous one is that the explanation of content in the new description is more explicit. The same content has been covered in the courses previously, so it is indeed the same course, but without explicit detailed call out in the descriptions.
  • EML4140: Heat Transfer (3 credit hr)
Changed: The course description was updated to include the important topics from EML4126: Transport Phenomena (3 credit hr) since the courses EML4140: Heat Transfer (3 credit hr) and EML4126: Transport Phenomena (3 credit hr) are being combined.
