2012-2013 CCBC College Catalog

Engineering Technology

EGNT 101 – 3 Credits
Introduction to Engineering Technology

Covers topics in a variety of construction and engineering disciplines. Students will examine various careers in engineering and the methods and processes used in the fields of civil, surveying, construction, electrical, mechanical, and other engineering fields. Topics include robotics, soil mechanics, project management, ethics, engineering design, Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), and measurement equipment. Skills are applied through engineering challenges and hands on field activities. This course serves as the basis for the Engineering Technology curriculum. NOTE: Course offered every fall, spring and may be offered during additional sessions.

Prerequisites: ENGL 052 or ESOL 052 and RDNG 052 or ESOL 054 or ACLT 052 and MATH 082

EGNT 121 – 3 Credits
Statics

Covers fundamental concepts of mechanics relating to forces acting on rigid bodies. Other topics included are problems involving actions and reactions on structures and machines in two and three dimensions, vector algebra operations, and centroids. 2 lecture, 2 laboratory hours per week. NOTE: Course offered every fall, spring and may be offered during additional sessions.

Prerequisite: MATH 135 or MATH 165 or MATH 251

EGNT 221 – 3 Credits
Strengths and Materials

Prepares technicians to design mechanical components and structures, predict failures, and understand physical properties of materials. The student is introduced to stress and strain relationships in deformable solids and analysis of axial members, shafts, beams, columns, and pressure vessels. Other topics include combined stresses, statically indetermined members, and properties of structural materials. Applied rather than theoretical, the course emphasizes problem solving. 2 lecture, 2 laboratory hours per week. NOTE: Courses offered once a year (fall or spring).

Prerequisite: EGNT 121

EGNT 226 – 3 Credits
Engineering Process and Methods

Covers tasks and elements involved in basic engineering problem solving. This course focuses on the aspects of field information collection and documentation and identification of available and necessary testing to resolve technical and engineering issues. 3 lecture hours per week. NOTE: Courses offered once a year (fall or spring).

Prerequisite: EGNT 101
