2017-2018 Pre-Engineering Program
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 students 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 world. Introduction to programming using non-traditional, intuitive
programming enviroments such as smartphones and LEGO Mindstorms.
Engineering (EGR) 165: Computer Aided Design. 3 credits.
The goal of this course is to familliarize engineering students with fundamental principles of computer aided
design and perform basic engineering analysis, such as stress and deflection using solid modeling and
parametric design using Pro-Engineer software.
Computer Science (CSC) 175: Problem Solving and Programming 1. 4 credits
This course introduces students to the structured programming language C++ which which is essential for
engineering applications and problem solving. Programming language concepts, arrays, structures, and
supprograms will be included.
Engineering (EGR) 102: Introduction to Engineering. 3 credits.
This course introduces students to various eengineering disciplines; and commmon 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.
