    •  MAE 100 Computer Aided Design
      4 credits; 4 hours
      This course introduces the student to AutoCAD’s friendly pulldown menus as a tool to create graphical representations of objects. The course covers introduction of dimensioning systems, fundamentals of orthographic views of real-world objects, and basic two-dimensional drafting techniques. The course includes the creation of three-dimensional objects and their modification by changing the rendering options, material and lighting properties. Views of assemblies and animations are also considered.

      Pre- or Corequisite: CSE095, ENA/ENG/ESA099/ENC101, MAT096

       MAE 101 Engineering Lab I
      1 credit; 3 hours (lab)
      This is the first of two engineering laboratory courses. Students meet once a week and are introduced to engineering design through hands-on laboratory work using computer applications. They are taught how to carry out basic structural analysis; in particular, they are introduced to programming a robot to perform a specific task. Additionally, they work in groups on design projects and are expected to use computers for documentation, for data analysis, and for maneuvering the robots.

       MAE 211 Engineering Mechanics: Statics
      3 credit; 3 hours
      This course is designed to introduce students to the theory and applications of engineering mechanics – statics. Topics to be covered include equivalent systems of forces, resultants, distributed forces, equilibrium of rigid bodies, centroids, centers of gravity, fluid statics, moments of inertia and friction. Analysis of frames and machines, forces in beams, internal stresses and stability will also be considered. Vector algebra will be used where appropriate.

       MAE 213 Electrical Circuits I
      3 credits; 3 hours
      Students are introduced to the analysis of basic AC and DC circuits containing resistors, inductors, capacitors, and both independent and dependent sources of voltage and current. Voltage division and current division yield simplified analysis of resistors (impedences) in series and in parallel, respectively. Thevenin’s and Norton’s theorems are used to determine equivalent subcircuits. Differential equation techniques are presented to simplify the analysis of AC circuits.

       MAE 219 Thermodynamics I
      MAE219 Thermodynamics I 3 credits; 3 hours
      This course introduces students to basic physical concepts and applications of thermodynamics, and to their consequences for engineering processes and operations. Emphasis is placed on the first and second laws. Properties of pure substances are studied, along with basic principles governing transformations of energy, particularly heat, and work. Behavior of mixtures of gases and vapors and air conditioning are considered. An elementary introduction to cycles (Carnot cycle, reversibility, power and refrigeration cycles) completes the course.

      Prerequisite: SCP232, SCC201, MAT203, MAT204
