The overall goal of this course is to generate and maintain interest in the engineering
disciplines, in order to motivate students to become active learners, responsible
students, and ethical engineering professionals.
This course is intended to introduce students not only to the engineering disciplines,
but also to the study of engineering here at the COE. Each student will learn what to
expect from his/her studies as an engineering major, as well as what professors
expect from him/her as a student in pursuit of a technical degree.
Upon completion of this course, students should be able to define and distinguish
between the six engineering disciplines offered for study here at the COE in order to
make or confirm a decision regarding which field of study to enter. In addition,
students will have gained useful information intended to help them successfully
complete their engineering programs of choice.
In addition, it is imperative that each student is fully aware of the Pre-Engineering
requirements. They appear in the required textbook, on the College of Engineering
webpage, in each updated campus bulletin, and will be presented in class.
By the end of the course, the successful student will be able to:
Define engineering (the formal definition given by ABET).
Identify activities common to all engineering disciplines
Specify and define the (conventional) engineering disciplines.
