Syllabus Spring 2009 Welcome to ENGR 12600! This course is designed to enable you to develop problem solving skills that you will use as an engineer. You will also be exposed to computer tools and teaming techniques that you will need as an engineering student and as an engineer. Typically, students find the content and the format of this course very different from high school classes. Our aim is to help you begin to develop problem solving strategies, computer competencies, and a professional engineering demeanor that you will need in your future engineering courses and career. We hope that this course gives you a feel for how engineers work, think, and communicate. Course Objectives Office Hours Academic Integrity Being Successful Grading Policy Computer Policies Course Prerequisites and Co- requisites Distribution of Grades Campus Emergency Course Structure Class Attendance Course Objectives Successful completion of this course will enable you to: Develop a logical problem solving process which includes sequential structures, conditional structures, and repetition structures for fundamental engineering problems, Translate a written problem statement into a mathematical model, Solve fundamental engineering problems using computer tools, Describe phases of design and how they are related to each other, Perform basic file management tasks using an appropriate computer tool, Work effectively and ethically as a member of a technical team, Develop a work ethic appropriate for the engineering profession, Evaluate and provide feedback to improve solutions to engineering problems, and Reflect on personal and team performance to achieve continuous improvement.

1. Moore, Holly (2007). MATLAB for Engineers. Pearson Prentice Hall. What You Can Do To Be Successful In ENGR 12600 Take ownership of your education and learning process. Successful problem solvers have to practice and learn material on their own. Remember that you are beginning to learn a new language - the language of engineering. Most freshmen engineering students do not have a background in engineering. So when problems are placed in an engineering context that uses the language of engineering, as will occur in ENGR 12600, you may find some problems difficult to understand at first glance. Be an active participant in classroom activities. The more engaged you are in the classroom, the more you will get out of the class. Come prepared for class. By doing the reading assignments before class, you will understand more of the content covered in class. Learn to be accountable to your team and have your team be accountable to you to complete assignments and learn the course material. You will be working in a team of four in lab, in lecture, and on selected homework problems. You will need to be an active participant on the team. Meet your team outside of class to complete assignments.
