**Engineering Technology**

**ET 150. Mechanical Drawing. 3(2,3). **This
course consists of an introduction to fundamentals of Technical
Drawing and use of a Computer Aided Design Software to introduce the
students with the use of computer as a tool to generate engineering
drawings.

**ENGR 170/ET 170. Introduction to Engineering/Technology.
3(3,0**). This course stresses the role of Engineering
and Technology in the society in general and in technological
environment in particular; presentation of various physical and
mathematical tools for solving technical problems; adequate use of
graphical analysis, technical sketching, digital and analog computers.
Introduction to analysis and synthesis of electrical, mechanical,
environmental and pollution-control systems.

**ET 212. Statics. 3(3,0). **This is a course in
the classification of force systems, free body diagrams and principles
of equilibrium applied to bodies and simple structures. Friction,
centroids, moments of inertia. *Prerequisite: *Math 152.

**ET 213. Strength of Materials**. **3(3,0).
**This course emphasizes concepts of stress and strain;
stress-strain relations; tension, compression, torsion, buckling and
bending of structural elements. Deflection, shear, and moment in beams
and in statically determinate and statically indeterminate beams; and
mechanical properties of materials. *Prerequisite: *ET 212.

**ET 250. Technical Communications. 3(2,3**).
This course is designed to familiarize the student with concepts,
principles, and con-temporary practices used in industry to create,
write and present technical information. Attention will be given to
report writing, oral presentations, and graphic communications. It
will also include word processing and exercises that reinforce the
areas of technical commu-nications. *Prerequisites: *English 101
and 102. *A minimum grade of “C” must be obtained.*

**ET 255. Engineering Economic Analysis. 3(3,0). **
Basic concepts in Engineering Economic Analysis, principles of
equivalence of time value of money, return on investment, evaluation
of alternatives, the effects of taxes on economic analysis, break-even
and crossover analysis, replacement policies, optimization of
engineering design. Case studies are used. *Prerequisite: *M 152.
(F,S)

**ET 310. Engineering Computing. 3(2,3). **
Hardware and software; low-level and high-level languages; detailed
discussion of one high-level language-variables and constants; type
declarations, input/output statements, intrinsic functions, mixed-mode
arithmetic, selection using IF-THEN-ELSE or similar statements,
format-directed 110 statements, subscribed variables, repetition using
DO-Loops or similar statements; subroutines and functions, and
additional topics depending upon the language used. *Prerequisite:
*CS 150. (F,S)

**ET 313. Dynamics. 3(3,0). **This is a course
in kinematics and dynamics of a system of material particles,
kinematics and dynamics of rigid bodies in space, moment of inertia of
masses, principle of work, and energy. Impulse and momentum, impact
and mechanics of vibrations. *Prerequisite: *ET 212. (F,S)

**ET 421. Thermodynamics. 3(3,0). **This course
is an introduction to thermodynamics. Its content includes basic
concepts and defini-tions; thermodynamics properties, work and heat
interactions; energy and mass conservation laws; First Law analysis of
system and control volumes and applications to engineering systems and
processes; ther-modynamics cycles and Second Law. *Prerequisites:
*Physics 250/254, 251. MATH 163.
