2017- 2018 Pre-Engineering Program
Fluency with information technology Computer Science (CSC) 101: Fluency with Information Technology and Computing. 3 Credits.

This course covers the topics to facilitate fluency with Information Technology (IT). The National Research Council (NRC) defines fluency in IT as the ability to acquire a lifelong learning process so as to persistently and continuously adapt to change and obtain more knowledge to make effective use of IT for work and leisure.

The relevance of IT and computing in daily life will be emphasized through learning about such topics as image representation, high definition video transmission, MP3, web page development, game development, and mobile applications development. A Graphical and intuitive programming environment from MIT called Scratch will be used to examine coding fundamentals. Development of mobile applications for smart phones will also be covered using the visual programming language App Inventor. Basic web page design concepts will be presented through the use of HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript. A simple 8-bit assembler simulator will be used to illustrate low level details of how computer systems operate as fetch/execute engines.
Parametric Modeling with Creo Parametric 4.0 Engineering (EGR) 165: Computer Aided Design. 3 Credits.

The purpose of this course is to enable students to develop increased knowledge and proficiency in the use of computerized solid modeling techniques. Students taking this course should be able to develop parts, assemblies and related engineering drawings. It involves parametric solid modeling using the software Creo 4.0.
Absolte C++ Computer Science (CSC) 175: Problem Solving and Programming. 4 Credits.

This course introduces students to the structured programming language C++ which is essential for engineering applications and problem solving. Programmin language concepts, arrays, structures, and subprograms will be included.
Intro to Engineering Engineering (EGR) 102: Introduction to Engineering. 4 Credits.

This course introduces students to various engineering disciplines, and common engineering science foundations of all branches, teaming, ethics, and communication. Fundamental principles of various engineering disciplines will be taught using one central problem from each discipline.
