ENGR-390 through Oregon State University (OSU)
Introduction to the basic ideas and tools of the engineering profession. An exploration of career and education options within the field, and the skills needed to achieve career goals. Methods of engineering analysis, design, and problem solving culminating in a design project. The class will cover all facets of engineering design, including background research, requirement specification and prioritization, development, prototype construction, testing, and evaluation for future redesigns.
Introduction to basic scientific and engineering computing using MATLAB. Covers methods of engineering analysis, design, and problem solving with computational tools. Emphasis on developing proficiency in writing functions and programs.
This course will emphasize the practical application of engineering graphics techniques for the design, maintenance, and modification of mechanical parts and assemblies. Students will both generate new models based on design intent and translate existing physical objects into graphical 3D models, documenting their work with 2D engineering drawings according to ASME standards. Includes isometric views, dimensioning, and simulation.
The first course in digital design covers basic logic gates, Boolean algebra, Karnaugh mapping, number systems, timing analysis, and state machines. Students will become proficient with computational tools including schematic capture programs and circuit simulators.
A study of basic electrical circuit theory. Analysis of voltage and current relationships. Covers circuit parameters of resistance, inductance, and capacitance. Includes basic DC, AC, and natural response of circuits. This course is not intended for Electrical or Computer Engineering majors.
First term of engineering mechanics sequence. This course focuses on the study of force systems acting on articles or rigid bodies under equilibrium conditions.
Kinematics, kinetics, work-energy, and impulse-momentum relationships of engineering systems. The course examines the fundamental principles of Newton's laws of motion, with applications to basic particles and rigid bodies in one, two, and three dimensions.
Introduces the relation of externally applied loads and their internal effects on deformable bodies, such as columns, shafts, beams and statically indeterminate structures or systems made up of such members.
Designed to give the student a thorough understanding of basic electrical circuit theory, this course covers voltage and current relationships and fundamental methods of circuit analysis. Electrical circuit parameters such as resistance, inductance, and capacitance will be examined through theory and laboratory experiments.
Expands upon the techniques of circuit analysis begun in Circuits I through theory and laboratory experiments. The course covers the time response of first- and second-order circuits, the steady-state circuit behavior of circuits driven by sinusoidal sources, three phase circuits, AC power, electrical motors, and the use of Laplace transforms to analyze the transient and steady-state behavior for a number of signal types.
Final course in the electrical circuits sequence. The main emphases of the course are frequency response of circuits, the design and analysis of filters, Laplace transform analysis, Fourier analysis, and two-port networks. The laboratory portion of the course will consist of one project involving significant design and analysis.
This course is an introduction to materials science, a field that describes the behavior of materials by utilizing principles of chemistry and physics to engineer new materials and predict their resultant properties. The course will focus on describing the microscopic physical and chemical structure of materials and relating that structure to the macroscopic thermal, electrical, and mechanical properties. The course will also cover the connection between atomic/crystal structure and materials processing.
The second course in digital design covers synchronous state machine circuits, microprocessor architecture, shift register devices, and the design of memory systems.
