ENGR 301. Engineering Materials. 4 Credits.
This course covers the basic behavior and processing of engineering materials, including metals, ceramics, plastics, and alloys. Phase behavior of alloys, response to applied loads, crystalline and noncrystalline behavior are included.
P: ET 206 OR CHEM 212 or concurrent enrollment
ENGR 342. Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition. 3 Credits.
This course uses knowledge acquired from previous courses as it applies to techniques for precision measurements, interpreting measurement data and using it in control systems. Hands on laboratory experiments are provided to demonstrate and verify the concepts in precision measurement theory.
P: ET 240
ENGR 498. Independent Study. 1-4 Credits.
Independent study is offered on an individual basis at the student's request and consists of a program of learning activities planned in consultation with a faculty member. A student wishing to study or conduct research in an area not represented in available scheduled courses should develop a preliminary proposal and seek the sponsorship of a faculty member. The student's advisor can direct him or her to instructors with appropriate interests. A written report or equivalent is required for evaluation, and a short title describing the program must be sent early in the semester to the registrar for entry on the student's transcript. Course is repeatable for credit.
