CoRe Course Descriptions

EGR 100 - Introduction to Engineering Design

  • EGR 100 utilizes a combination of weekly lectures and hands-on project labs to introduce students to the design process while encouraging critical thinking, creative problem solving and effective written oral and communication skills.  All of the above are essential to success in future engineering courses and ultimately a career in engineering.
  • The course format consists of one dynamic ‘large group’ lecture for and one ‘small group’ laboratory each week.
  • Prerequisites:  (MTH 116 or concurrently) or (MTH 132 or concurrently) or (MTH 152H or concurrently) or (LB 118 or concurrently) and (WRA 1004 or designated score on English Placement test )
  • Required for all Engineering majors.

EGR 102 - Introduction to Engineering Modeling

  • EGR 102 further expands students’ problem solving skills.  Students will learn to identify problem solution methods and problem decomposition as well as explore and learn about the use of numerical methods and computation in solving engineering problems.  Students will be exposed to mathematical modeling and developing solutions through advanced spreadsheet functions and MATLAB.
  • The course format includes one 50 minute weekly lecture to discuss numerical methods and problem solving in engineering and two laboratory sections to provide hands-on computing experience.
  • Prerequisites:  (EGR 100 or concurrently) and (MTH 132 or concurrently) or (MTH 152H or concurrently) or (LB 118 or concurrently)
  • Required for all Engineering majors except Computer Engineering, Computer Science and Electrical Engineering.
