Corequisites: ENGR-105L

ENGR-123

Introduction to Engineering

Credit(s): 2

This course allows students to explore careers and opportunities in engineering and technology. Topics covered include becoming an engineer, the history, opportunities and potential fields, and career paths in engineering. This course is conducted using lectures, discussions, research, projects, guest speakers, and at least one field trip. This course will also allow students to experience the design process and engineering problem solving, as well as graphical analysis, data analysis, and oral and written communication skills. Lecture: 1 hour per week Lab: 3 hours per week Recommended: Student be familiar with the Internet
