Engineering Design - Course Descriptions

ENGD 100 Engineering Design Studio I 6R-10L-8C F
Prerequisites: There are no prerequisites for this course.
Corequisites: There are no corequisites for this course.

Integrates rhetorical analysis, research methods, and the conventions of academic writing into the design process. Includes problem definition, analysis, alternate solutions, and specifications of final solutions. Uses sketching, computer-aided drawings, and traditional orthographic drawings to communicate design decisions. Introduces teamwork through group design efforts and instruction. Successful completion of this studio satisfies the requirements of RH131, EM103, and EM104. Students may not receive credit towards graduation for both ENGD100 and RH131, EM103, and EM104.

ENGD 110 Engineering Design Studio II 4R-12L-6C W
Prerequisites: ENGD 100 Engineering Design Studio I 6R-10L-8C F or RH 131 Rhetoric & Composition 4R-OL-4C F, and EM 103 Introduction to Design 1R-3L-2C S, and EM 104 Graphical Communications 1R-2L-2C F
Corequisites: There are no corequisites for this course.

Extends the design process to include the development of software, the use of instrumentation and measurement techniques, and the consideration of scientific research and technological development within cultural, historical, and social contexts and values. Introduces fundamental principles and techniques of programming, including classes, objects, and methods. Surveys types of sensors and basic principles of circuit design (including Ohm’s Law, Kirchoff’s Laws). Supplies context in ideas about technical progress and scientific facts, the role of design in social institutions, and issues of gender facing technical professionals and knowledge domains.

ENGD 120 Engineering Design Studio III 4R-12L-6C S
Prerequisites: ENGD 110 Engineering Design Studio II 4R-12L-6C W
Corequisites: There are no corequisites for this course.

Continues the design process with software development, instrumentation and measurement techniques, and cultural, historical, and social contexts and values surrounding scientific and technological development work. Adds more advanced programming concepts (implicit loops and conditionals) and tasks of software development (such as development of user interfaces). Includes use of electronic components (op amps, capacitors, inductors) and signal processing (amplifiers and filters). Social contexts for analysis of technology and its history include gender and work, with particular attention to the social implications of biotechnology. Students may not receive credit towards graduation for both ENGD120 and CSSE120, BE201, or IA239. Successful completion of ENGD110 and ENGD120 satisfies the requirements of an Engineering Topics elective (4 hr. elective), CSSE120, and IA239.

ENGD200 Systems Accounting and Modeling I 2R-0L-2C W
Prerequisites: MA 111 Calculus I 5R-0L-5C F,W or MA 101 Introduction to Engineering Mathematics 4R-1L-4C F
Corequisites: There are no corequisites for this course.

Covers systems accounting and modeling approach to engineering science, conservation of mass, linear and angular momentum. 2D and 3D vectors will be introduced and reinforced with examples.

ENGD 210 Systems Accounting and Modeling II 4R-0L-4C S
Prerequisites: ENGD200 Systems Accounting and Modeling I 2R-0L-2C W, and EM 121 Statics & Mechanics of Materials I 4R-0L-4C F, W, S equivalent
Corequisites: There are no corequisites for this course.

A common framework for engineering analysis is extended using the concepts of a system, accounting and conservation of extensive properties, constitutive relations, constraints, and modeling assumptions. Stress, strain, and deformation under axial loading are defined. Equilibrium is defined. Conservation equations for mass, charge, momentum and energy, and an entropy accounting equation are developed. Applications are developed from multiple engineering disciplines. Students may not receive credit towards graduation for both ENGD210 and ES201.
