ENGR 310    Engineering Survey Measurements    4 Units

Prerequisite: MATH 330 or 373 with a grade of "C" or better
Advisory: Eligible for ENGRD 310 or ENGRD 312 AND ENGWR 300; OR ESLR 340 AND ESLW 340.
Course Transferable to UC/CSU
Hours: 54 hours LEC ; 54 hours LAB
Description: This course covers the basic fundamentals of surveying for engineers. Electronic surveying instruments are used to develop the principles of measurement for distance, elevations, and angles. Additional topics include systematic and random errors, line directions, profiles and cross sections, traverse computations, horizontal and vertical curves, and earthwork quantity calculations. This course is intended for civil engineers, but may also be required for other programs.

ENGR 312    Engineering Graphics    3 Units

Prerequisite: None.
Advisory: ENGR 305
Course Transferable to UC/CSU
Hours: 36 hours LEC ; 72 hours LAB
Description: This course covers the application of graphical tools to analyze, interpret, and solve engineering problems. The engineering design process is taught using manual and introductory interactive computer-aided design and drafting (CADD) tools to solve typical three-dimensional engineering problems. Topics include descriptive geometry, vector graphics, orthogonal projection, and primary and secondary auxiliary views. This course is intended for mechanical and civil engineering majors but may also be required for other programs.
