ENGR 2290 Independent Study

Independent study in engineering may be conducted under the guidance of a faculty member. Course may be taken at the sophomore level through the senior level. One to four hours of credit may be specified. Prerequisite: Written consent of the supervising professor, department chair, and Dean prior to registration. Lab and administrative fee.


ENGR 2301 The Effects of Climate Change

This course is designed to expose students with a wide range of academic interests to the human activity of science. In this course students will take the broad view that includes the natural, behavioral, and social sciences as material for discussions. Students will use the texts to explore the modes of thought and activity that are common to all of these disciplines, including their mathematical tools and empirical methods. Students will also consider the social, cultural and political contexts in which science occurs. By the end of the course, students should be familiar with scientists’ intellectual and practical tools. Students should also be able to contrast the distinctive features of the sciences with academic areas such as humanities. Lab fee.
