ENGN 48L Introduction to Engineering & Technology Lab (1)
Credit, Degree Applicable
This is a project-oriented, hands-on course to introduce students to the practices and methodologies used in Engineering and Technology. Work will be in four areas: electronics, computer aided drafting, mechanical construction and fabrication and technical mathematics.
After successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Outcome 1: Relate the subjects studied by Engineering and Technology students to the types of jobs that engineers and technicians do.
- Outcome 2: Classify the various types of engineering.
- Outcome 3: Create simple two-dimensional drawings using computer aided software.
- Outcome 4: Formulate a procedure to construct a mechanical project using various sheet metal fabrication techniques.
- Outcome 5: Construct electrical circuits and/or wiring projects.
- Outcome 6: Manage the lab equipment to measure voltage, current, and resistance in an electronic circuit.
- Outcome 7: Manage the lab equipment to trace signal flow in a simple electronic system.
- Outcome 8: Appraise electronic faults from failure symptoms in electronic circuits.
- Outcome 9: Construct mechanical projects using mechanical fabrication and manufacturing equipment.
- Outcome 10: Summarize the role of surveying, materials testing and other techniques used in engineering endeavors
- Outcome 11: Relate the role of mathematics in engineering and technology
