Courses

ENGR 101  Introduction to Engineering  3 Credits (3,0)

This course is an introduction to the interdisciplinary aspects of the engineering of aerospace systems. It is a project-based course, demonstrating how the engineering profession is a multi-disciplinary field. Students are involved in an array of conceptual exercises, simple design activities, and projects dealingwith engineering in aerospace-related areas.
Prerequisites: MATH 142 or MATH 143 or qualifying score on the mathematics skills assessment.

ENGR 115  Introduction to Computing for Engineers  3 Credits (3,0)

This is an introductory course in programming and computing for scientists and engineers. The course introduces students to the following aspects of software engineering: specification, requirements, design, code, and test. This course uses a problem-solving approach for developing algorithms. The following topics will be included: data types and related operations, looping, decision, input/output, functions, arrays, files, and plotting.

ENGR 119  Graphical Communications  2 Credits (2,0)

ENGR 490  Capstone Design Project I  3 Credits (3,0)

The first of two courses intended to provide senior level engineering students with experience in the multiple phases of a design project. This course will focus on the system requirements definition, exploration of the design space, and development of a conceptual design of a team project. Students will develop a preliminary design of the selected system design concept using computer based design and analysis tools. Prerequisite: Senior level standing and course listed.
Prerequisites: AERO 350.

ENGR 491  Capstone Design Project II  3 Credits (3,0)

The final course in the capstone design sequence. Students will conduct a detailed design of the final project as well as conduct verification and validation exercises to demonstrate how the system performed when compared to system specifications and user requirements.
Prerequisites: ENGR 490.
