ENGR 3137 Digital Logic Design Laboratory

This course is a foundational course for all inter-disciplinary engineering science majors.  It is a crucial component of the ENGR 3337 Digital Logic Design course. Corequisite: ENGR 3337, Lab fee.


ENGR 3160 Engineering Design: Bio-Inspired Design

This course introduces students to the engineering design process as practiced by professional engineers. Particular focus will be given to design inspirations from the natural world. Students will work in teams to study a mechanism found in nature and draw on the lessons learned to design a bio-inspired educational product, such as a toy or learning tool. Topics covered will include team building, brainstorming techniques, project management, design iteration, design optimization, ethical issues in engineering design, and reflection on career goals. Particular emphasis will be given to the communication of the design team’s results. Prerequisite: ENGR 1320. Lab fee.

ENGR 3260 Engineering Design: Engineering for Humanity

Engineering students in this course learn to apply science, mathematics, and engineering design to the service of humanity. A particular in-need group will be chosen prior to each semester for the design teams to serve. Student will spend time evaluating the needs of the target group and developing products that will improve their lives in a concrete way. Students will be asked to reflect on the experience and how it pertains to their own career goals. Lab fee.


ENGR 3290 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 3337 Digital Logic Design

This course is designed to familiarize computer science and engineering students with the fundamental concepts in the field of digital logic design. This course will consider problems from the following areas: Boolean algebra, number systems and representations, analysis and design of combinational and sequential logic circuits, minimization, small and medium scale integrated devices, programmable logic and simulation of digital circuits. Prerequisite(s): ENGR 1320 and Corequisite: ENGR 3137 or by permission of the instructor. Lab Fee.


ENGR 3420 Mechanics of Materials

This course introduces junior-level engineering students to the concepts of stress and strain with applications to design and analysis of structures. The goals include developing skills relating to modeling and analysis of simple structures subject to axial, torsional, and bending loads. This course incorporates hands-on experience with standard test methods  for the mechanical properties of a range of materials. Prerequisite(s): ENGR 2320 or by permission of the instructor. Lab fee.
