ENGR 1 Engineering Graphics

Units: 3     Hours: 2 Lecture, 3 Laboratory

Advisory: Eligible for English 250 and English 260; Mathematics 1A - may be concurrent, and CSIS 10 - May be concurrent.

Transferable: CSU; UC; CAN: ENGR 2

An introduction to the graphical and visual communication of the engineering design process. Topics will include the design process, visualization, free-hand sketching, orthographic projection, multi views, auxiliary views, section views, dimensioning and tolerances. Computer-aided-drafting (CAD) software will be used extensively in conjunction with traditional methods to highlight the strengths of multiple communication methodologies.

ENGR 4 Properties Of Materials

Units: 3     Hours: 3 Lecture

Prerequisite: Chemistry 1A and Physics 4A.

Transferable: CSU; UC; CAN: ENGR 4

Basic principles of physics and chemistry are used to determine the quantitative relationships which describe the behavior of solids. Particular emphasis is placed upon the relationship between the structure and mechanical properties of crystalline solids. Applications consider control of properties as an engineering design variable. A term paper based upon review of the periodical technical literature is required.
