INTRODUCTION TO ENGINEERING
(formerly ENGR 1010)

ENGR 1000 is a survey of various fields of engineering that could be considered as possible career choices. It is an introduction to the theory and practice of engineering science, including elementary problem solving and engineering design. The application of the computer as an engineering tool will be stressed, including the use of spreadsheets, word processors, and computational software. Prerequisite: College Algebra.


ENGR 1800 F (4:3:2)
INTERDISCIPLINARY INTRODUCTION TO GIS

This course is an interdisciplinary introduction for Geographical Information Systems (GIS). It covers general GIS applications and teaches fundamentals in the use of the current-version of ArcGIS by ESRI which is the widest used software in the field. The class includes hands-on experience with the software that will aid students planning careers in engineering, drafting, geology or geography, natural resources, law enforcement, many business fields, surveying, journalism, and many other areas. GPS will also be taught for producing input for GIS. There will also be a service learning component to the course to give the students actual experience.
