Engineering, General (ENGR) Courses

ENGR 151 Engineering Principles I
3 hours. This course serves as an introduction to the concepts and methods of engineering problem solving and design. Topics include the following: analysis and design methodologies, structured computer programming, basic principles of engineering graphics, the visualization and modeling of real-world systems, and an introduction to the history and ethics of the engineering profession. Computer-aided-design (CAD) tools, solid modeling and simulation software, and mathematics software applications are presented. Students work on numerous team design projects, communicating their results through oral and written reports. Meets twice weekly in a lecture/lab environment. Additional course fee is required.
Prerequisite: MATH 190 Precalculus Mathematics or equivalent.

Prerequisite: ENGR 151 Engineering Principles I.

ENGR 250 Principles of Materials Science
3 hours. Course concerns the science underlying the behavior of engineering materials, including the relation between atomic structure and mechanical, electrical, and magnetic properties in metals, ceramics, polymers, composite materials, and semiconductors. Phase diagrams, heat treatment and corrosion mechanisms are also presented. Laboratory exercises are included to enhance course theory and to provide hands-on experience with materials measurement apparatus and analysis techniques. Two lectures and one laboratory per week. Additional course fee is required.
Prerequisites: CHEM 211 General Chemistry I, ENGR 152 Engineering Principles II, and PHYS 212 General Physics with Calculus II.

ENGR 275 Engineering Internship Experience
1-4 hours. Supervised experience with an off-campus industry, business or institution where the student is working in some engineering-related discipline. Admission and credit hours determined by instructor.

ENGR 285 Selected Topics
2-4 hours. Occasional special courses chosen to fit the interests and needs of engineering students and faculty. Additional course fee is required.

ENGR 381 Servant Engineering I
2 hours. Servant engineering is a two-semester course sequence typically taken in the student’s junior year. In the summer before the course begins, students research a potential engineering project designed to serve others. These projects are proposed early in the first semester, and the most feasible projects are selected for the program. Students are then assigned to a team of four or five who work on a selected project. Projects might require a multi-disciplinary team ranging from computer science to civil engineering, or they might be more focused on a specific skill-set. Each team has a faculty mentor who helps guide the project. In both semesters, teams meet weekly with their faculty mentors and work through problem definition, specification development and conceptual development, with the goal of selecting a specific design for detailed design-and-build. Every project will be an opportunity to use the gifts that God has given us to serve others. Additional course fee is required. Prerequisite: ENGR 152. Final enrollment is contingent on approval from the College of Engineering.

ENGR 399 Cross-Cultural Study
3 hours. This course offers in-depth discipline-specific cross-cultural study designed to enhance the intercultural emphasis of various academic majors. The course includes class meetings followed by travel to various locations throughout the world. Students will use core disciplinary knowledge to serve, learn and interact with other cultures. (Offered in May Term. Students must meet eligibility requirements.) Additional course fee is required.

ENGR 475 Engineering Internship Experience
1-4 hours. Supervised experience with an off-campus industry, business or institution where the student is working in some engineering-related discipline. Admission and credit hours determined by instructor.

ENGR 481 Senior Design I
1 hour. In the senior design sequence, students apply their knowledge and design skills gained through course work to an industry-based project. In the first semester, interdisciplinary teams are formed to begin projects in conjunction with participating industrial sponsors. Necessary background research and feasibility studies are completed. Students must also consider the ethical, moral, environmental and social impact of their designs. Collaboration with other departments of the university is encouraged. Additional course fee is required.
Prerequisite: senior status in the engineering major.

ENGR 482 Senior Design II
3 hours. The projects that were initiated in the first semester are further developed through simulation, prototyping and testing. Use of analytic, computer, experimental and design techniques is applied throughout the project. The design sequence culminates in the construction of the projects, oral presentations and formal written reports. Additional course fee is required.
Prerequisite: ENGR 481 Senior Design I.

ENGR 485 Selected Topics
2-4 hours. Occasional special courses chosen to fit the interests and needs of engineering students and faculty. Additional course fee is required.
