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.
