General Engineering 440
14:440:100 Introduction to Engineering (1) Brief overview of each of the specific fields of engineering offered as degree programs at the school. Describes the major fields of study, as well as the engineering profession in general. Graded Pass/No Credit.
14:440:107 Methods of Inquiry for Engineers (E3)   Study skills. A system of thinking strategies and critical and analytical thinking skills applicable across the engineering curriculum.
14:440:115 Reilly DELLC Introduction to Engineering (3)
Reilly DELLC Introduction to Engineering introduces different engineering majors to students consist of in-class activities including panels, guest lectures, and group projects. It gives students a chance to connect with the engineering community and orients them to information, programs, and resources that may be helpful as they embark on their journey in engineering. The class is open to engineering students who are members of the Reilly Douglass Engineering Living Learning Community (DELLC).
14:440:127 Introduction to Computers for Engineers (3) Introduction to MATLAB, a powerful programming package for engineers and scientists. Students will learn the fundamentals of MATLAB, how to write programs in MATLAB, and how to solve engineering problems using MATLAB. Emphasis on problem-solving skills and mathematical tools of importance in engineering. Prerequisite: Some prior programming experience is preferred.
14:440:191 Honors Introduction to Engineering I (3) This course introduces students to the profession of engineering in all of its creative, professional, social, and at times controversial aspects. Students will learn about engineering as a curriculum of study, the different fields, careers, and job functions. They will learn the aspects of engineers as creators and designers as they create solutions, keeping in mind both ethics and professionalism. Students will also learn some of the key tools needed for engineers as they develop their paths toward professional/personal growth and success. The course culminates in final projects where students create, document, and present a human-based design. Open only to first-year students in the Engineering Honors Academy.
14:440:221 Engineering Mechanics: Statics (3) Classification of systems of forces and their resultants; geometrical and analytical conditions for the equilibrium of force systems; frames and trusses; friction; parabolic and catenary cables; centers of gravity. Prerequisites: 01:640:151 and 01:750:123.
14:440:222 Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics (3) Kinematics of particles and rigid bodies; rectangular, path, and polar descriptions. Relative motion. Kinetics of particles, particle systems, and rigid bodies; equations of motion, principles of work and energy, linear and angular impulse and momentum. Impact. Prerequisites: 01:640:152 and (14:440:221 or 14:440:291).
14:440:291 Honors Engineering Mechanics: Statics (3) Covers the same material as 14:440:221 but in a more thorough and demanding fashion. Open only to honors program participants.
14:440:292 Honors Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics (3) Covers the same material as 14:440:222 but in a more thorough and demanding fashion. Open only to honors program participants.
14:440:294 Honors Engineering Design and Development I (1) This course is offered in the spring semester of the Engineering Honors Academy second year. The class is made to enhance professional and technical skills by practicing human-centered design and continuing the growth of leadership and presentation abilities while fostering community between the sophomores and juniors in the Honors Academy. The course will culminate in an oral presentation and poster session. The learning objectives are to continue to develop engineering, technical, and public speaking skills from Honors Introduction to Engineering (14:440:191); to continue to build a sense of community between the different classes that compose the Honors Academy students; to assist in preparing students for industry, research, and senior design; to develop group skills while immersing students in multidisciplinary engineering; and to build creative problem-solving skills in realistic scenarios. Prerequisite: 14:440:191. Open only to sophomore students in the Engineering Honors Academy.
14:440:298 Professional Skills to Succeed in Engineering (1) This course consists of a series of seminars that provide students with exposure to some of the professional skills and competencies associated with the practice of engineering. Topics include professional ethics and conduct, contemporary issues, written and oral communication, evaluation of career options, interviewing skills, and other career-related topics. Material and activities include guest lectures, case studies, and interactive small-group discussions.
14:440:391-392 Undergraduate Research in Engineering Interdisciplinary undergraduate research under the guidance of a faculty member in the areas of math, science, and engineering.
Permission by the Instructor.
14:440:396 Honors Engineering Design and Development II (1) This course is offered in the spring semester of the Engineering Honors Academy third year. The class is made to enhance professional and technical skills by practicing human-centered design and continuing the growth of leadership and presentation abilities while fostering community between the sophomores and juniors in the Honors Academy. The course will culminate in an oral presentation and poster session. The learning objectives are to continue to develop engineering, technical, and public speaking skills from Honors Introduction to Engineering (14:440:191) and the Honors Design and Development I (14:440:294); to continue to build a sense of community between the different classes that compose the Honors Academy students; to assist in preparing students for industry, research, and senior design; to develop group skills while immersing students in multidisciplinary engineering; and to build creative problem-solving skills in realistic scenarios. Prerequisites: 14:440:294. Open only to junior students in the Engineering Honors Academy.
14:440:496-497 Co-op Internship in Engineering (3,3) Provides students with the opportunity to practice and/or apply knowledge and skills in various industrial settings in the engineering fields. Credits earned for the educational benefits of the experience and granted only for a continuous, six-month, full-time assignment. Permission by the Instructor. Graded pass/no credit.
