Engineering (EGR) Courses

EGR 1313. Calculus with Engineering Applications. (3-2) 3 Credit Hours.

Prerequisite: Completion of precalculus or satisfactory performance on a placement examination. The first of a two-part integrated physics and calculus course. Calculus topics include an introduction to the concepts of limit, continuity, and derivative, mean value theorem, and applications of derivatives such as velocity and acceleration; introduction to the Riemann integral and the fundamental theorem of calculus. Physics topics include an introduction to vectors, force and Newton’s Laws of Physics. Classes meet weekly for three hours of lecture and two hours of problem solving tutorials.

EGR 1324. Calculus II for Engineers. (4-0) 4 Credit Hours. (TCCN = MATH 2414)

Prerequisite: MAT 1214. Methods of integration, applications of the integral, sequences, series, and Taylor expansions. Calculus topics are combined with physics applications including an introduction to vectors, parametric equations, gradients, and Newton’s Laws of Physics. (Credit cannot be earned for both EGR 1324 and MAT 1224.).

EGR 1343. The Impact of Modern Technologies on Society. (3-0) 3 Credit Hours.

Prerequisites: Basic background in high school mathematics and physical sciences. This course is designed to inform students of the social impact of modern technologies. The course explores the issues faced by society as technology becomes an integral part of human life. The course prepares students to think critically, practically, creatively and responsively about technological and sociological challenges, and encourages them to examine solutions of their own. The course also explores and discusses the socio-technological interplay. May be applied toward the core curriculum requirement in Social and Behavioral Sciences.

EGR 1403. Technical Communication. (3-0) 3 Credit Hours.

Prerequisite: WRC 1013. Oral, written, graphical and visual communication; technical instructions; design project with presentation; team-work; and personal responsibility. May be applied toward the Core Curriculum requirement in the Component Area Option.

EGR 2103. Statics. (3-0) 3 Credit Hours. (TCCN = ENGR 2301)

Prerequisites: MAT 1224 and PHY 1943. Vector analysis of force systems applied to particles and rigid bodies and free body diagrams. Engineering applications of equilibrium; of moments, internal forces, and friction; and of centroids, centers of gravity, and moments of inertia. Generally offered: Fall, Spring, Summer.

EGR 2213. Statics and Dynamics. (3-0) 3 Credit Hours. (TCCN = ENGR 2303)
