Program Overview

The DEEP initiative allows motivated students to earn college credit by taking accredited courses taught by UM-Flint faculty.  DEEP will do exactly what its name implies: deepen the students' knowledge and understanding of course material, while providing in-depth college courses that will prepare them for college and university academic expectations.

Pre-Engineering Program (13 credits)

Winter Semester 2017 Courses     Computer Science (CSC) 175: Problem Solving and Programming I, 4 credits.     This course introduces stu dents to the structured programming language C++  which is essential for engineering applications and problem solving.   Programming language concepts, arrays, structures, and subprograms will be  included.         Engineering (EGR) 102: Introduction to Engineering, 3 credits.     This course introduces students to various engineering disciplines, and  common engineering science foundations of all branches, teaming, ethics,  and communication.  Fundamental principles of vario us engineering  disciplines will be taught using one central problem from each discipline. Fall Semester 2016 Courses   Computer Science (CSC) 101: Fluency with Information  Technology   and  Computing, 3 credits.     Development of fluency in Information Technology (IT) for productive use,  designed to  complement the studentís areas of study.     The relevance of IT and  computing in daily life, emphasized through collaborative learning about such  topics as image representation, high definition video transmission, digital voice  encoding, MP3 files, identity  protection for online shopping, data security in  social networks, robotics, game and animation creation, virtual  worlds.     Introduction to programming using non - traditional, intuitive  programming environments such as smartphones and LEGO Mindstorms.           Engineering   (EGR) 165: Computer Aided Design, 3 credits.   The goal of this course is to familiarize engineering students with  fundamental principles of computer aided design and perform basic  engineering analysis, such as stress and deflection using solid m odeling and  parametric design using Pro - Engineer software.
