If you cannot enroll in a class you need, please contact an advisor or refer to the waitlist instructions on the Registrar’s pages.

Engineering vs Engineering Technology classes

Some of the Engineering Program (CPE/EVE/SSE) classes are stacked with courses from the Engineering Technology Programs (CET/EET/MET); this means that students will be doing a majority of the same work under either course listing but maybe required to do additional work as well. The Engineering Program class is not the same as the Engineering Technology Program class. 

EAET policy allows Engineering Program students, enrolled prior to Spring 2018, to take up to 8 credit hours or 2 classes from any of the Engineering Technology Programs and apply the credits to major work in an Engineering Program. Students wishing to change majors from an Engineering Technology Program to an Engineering Program will need to discuss how to apply previous course work with an Engineering Program Advisor.

If an Engineering Program student is unable to enroll in an Engineering Program designated class, please add yourself to the waitlist for the section and contact the Program Coordinator/Advisor. Do NOT enroll in a stacked section that is designated as an Engineering Technology Program class.

EVE Flyer + Flowchart 2020-2021

Credits: 3 (3+0)

Prerequisite(s): None

Description: In this course, students study solid modeling fundamentals, geometric constructions, multi-view projections, section views, and dimensioning using adequate CAD software. 

Credits: 3 (3+0)

Prerequisite(s): PHY 2311 and MTH 2410 with "C" or better, or permission of instructor

Description: In this course, students study the principles of mechanics of static systems in two- and three-dimensions: static equilibrium of particles and rigid bodies; section properties; internal forces in statically determinate trusses and beams; friction; and virtual work.



Credits: 3 (3+0)

Prerequisite(s): CHE 1800, CHE 1811, MTH 2410, ENV 1200

Description: In this course students are introduced to the interaction between humans, their activities, and the environment around us. Over the course of the semester, they will explore anthropogenic and natural effects on air and water quality, how these systems operate and the application of applied sciences (e.g., physics, chemistry, and biology) to the natural world. Students are presented with the major environmental challenges through case studies.


Credits: 4 (3+2)

Prerequisite(s): EVE 2150 or SSE 2150 with grade "C" or better, or permission of instructor.

Description: Students in this course are introduced to the fundamentals in the strength and deformation of engineering materials. Students will focus on the development of constitutive relationships of materials under axial, torsion, transverse shear and bending loading conditions, and the engineering applications in the first part of the course.

Students will be introduced to beam deflection and column buckling theories and engineering solutions in the second part of the course. Students will use laboratory time to enhance the knowledge and theories developed in the class and to use different equipment measuring engineering properties of various materials.

Credits: 3 (3+0)

Prerequisite(s): EVE 2150 or SSE 2150 and MTH 3420 with grades “C“ or better, or permission of instructor.

Description: In this course students will be introduced to dynamics systems including kinematics, and kinetics of particles and rigid bodies with engineering applications. Students will also study the vibration systems in engineering applications.

Credits: 3 (3+0)

Prerequisite(s): EVE 3160 or SSE 3160 with grade "C" or better, or permission of instructor

Description: Students in this course will study physical properties of ideal fluids and real fluids. Course material includes fluid statics, kinematics and dynamics, energy and momentum principles of fluid mechanics, dimensional analysis and the applications of the theories and principles in incompressible flow in pipes, ducts, forces on immersed bodies and steady flow in open channels.

Credits: 3 (3+0)

Prerequisite(s): Junior standing or permission of instructor

Stacked With: CET 3320

Description: In this course students will study the physical and legal requirements of the environmental impact statement process. Students will research and document case studies on environmental impact statement.


Credits: 3 (3+0)

Prerequisite(s): ENV 1200 or GEG 1920 and completion of General Studies


Stacked With: ENV 3400

Description: This course presents an analysis of water as a major resource. It includes the study of the hydrologic cycle; competing water uses, current water problems, and approaches to water management. The relationship of water to land use is examined in terms of dams, watersheds, water laws, pollution, and flood control. Students will propose a design to conserve, reuse, and allocate fresh water resources in a developing country while considering geo-political consequences.


Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): ENV 1200 and completion of General Studies

Description: This course provides an overview of policy related to environmental engineering and major environmental laws in the U.S. The major statutes are analyzed in terms of purpose, scope, implementation, compliance requirements, and impact on land use. Students will review applicable case law and case studies as they apply to current engineering practices.


Credits: 3 (3+0)

Prerequisite(s): ENV 1200 and completion of General Studies

Description: This course offers a broad overview of wetland landscapes. Topics include: (1) Spatial distribution (local and national), (2) variations in wetlands topology (salt-water versus fresh-water and warmer versus colder climates), (3) relationships between wetlands (migratory flight paths), (4) wetlands ecosystems (5) human impacts on wetlands, (6) federal, state, and local wetlands regulations, and (7) international wetlands problems. Students will evaluate an engineered wetland and explore design, efficacy in nutrient removal and overall land use implications.


Credits: 3 (3+0)

Prerequisite(s): SSE 3135 with a grade of “C” or better or permission of instructor

Description: In this course students are introduced to applications of wood design in engineering. Analysis and design of wood structures is presented.
