Requirements: 8 courses / 28 credits (56 ECTS)
An introduction to civil engineering design. Analyze needs, determine capacities and develop design alternatives for civil engineering systems. Structures, water and waste water facilities, geotechnical and transportation systems are studied. Prerequisites: GEN100 Credits: 3
The course covers the following topics: a) Electrical Quantities and Circuit Variables (charge, current, voltage, resistance, power and energy units), b) Circuit Modelling (sources, circuit elements, Ohm’s law and Kirchhoff’s laws, c) Circuit Reduction Techniques (series, parallel, voltage divider, current divider, delta-star conversion, voltage and current source conversions), d) Circuit Analysis Techniques (mesh and loop current analysis, node voltage analysis), e) Circuit Theorems (maximum power transfer, superposition, Thevenin and Norton), f) Energy Storage Circuit Elements, g) Complex Number Theory (complex plane, polar forms, conversions), h) AC Circuits (sinusoidal waveforms, phase, R.M.S. average values, phasors, analysis using node voltages, loop currents and branch currents). Prerequisites: None Credits: 4
Includes an overview of the problems, perspectives, and methods of the engineering profession. Modelling of real-world problems for purposes of optimization, decision-making and design are analyzed. Practical techniques of problem formulation and analysis are also presented. Additionally, practice drawings are explained, and assigned drawings are completed by students both during lab periods and outside of class. Prerequisites: None Credits: 4
Focuses on the behavior of mechanical and structural systems under load. Topics include effects and distribution of forces on rigid bodies at rest; kinematics and kinetics of particles; force systems; shear and moment diagrams; force-stress-strain-deformation relationships, including torsion and combined loading; buckling and stability analysis; and, stress/strain transformation. Prerequisite(s): PH100 Credits: 3
Introduces students to the organization and architecture of computer systems, digital logic, low level instructions execution and system design. In particular, by the end of the course the student should be able to understand digital logic, fundamental building blocks (logic gates, flip-flops, counters, registers, PLA) and logic expressions; explain how a computer fetches from memory and executes an instruction; explain the relationship between the representation of machine level operation at the binary level and their representation by a symbolic assembler; write small programs and fragments of assembly language code to demonstrate an understanding of machine level operations; and use computer simulation packages to investigate assembly language programming. Prerequisites: IT150 Credits: 3
Introduces functions and graphs, continuity and exponential functions. Standard topics to be covered include concepts and rules of the differentiation of one variable functions, the meaning and application of derivatives in decision making management problems, integrals and the limits of one variable functions, as well as rules, interpretation, logarithm functions, definite integral, functions of several variables and application of partial derivatives. Students practice with various mathematical methods and learn how to model and analyze real world examples using mathematical tools and apply deductive reasoning as well.
Prerequisites: MATH90 or its equivalent Credits: 3
Focuses on basic and current understandings of physics’ problems and principles. Some of the topics to be studied include motion, forces, energy, and chemical reactions. Students will also be learning about machines, electricity, and magnetism. As students learn about each of the abovementioned topics, they will be conducting laboratory activities. For these activities students will be paired with one or more of their classmates. Prerequisites: MATH150 Credits: 4
Focuses on fundamental topics of physics including waves, optics, sound, heat, electricity, circuits magnetic and electromagnetic fields, and thermodynamics.
