ENGR300 Fundamentals of Mechanical Engineering (3 semester hours)

This course presents the fundamental mechanical principles of engineering required for any course of study in the engineering sciences. The student will be introduced to the principles and applications of statics, dynamics, thermodynamics and heat transfer. Students will study the interaction between mechanical and electrical systems and apply analogies between the two. Topics include: Technical problem solving and communication skills; Forces in Structures and Machines; Materials and Stresses; Fluids Engineering; Thermal and Energy Systems; Motion and Power Transmission. Finally, the course will present the essentials of the mechanical engineering profession and where it fits in the world of technology. (Prerequisites: SCIN234 and MATH240)
