ENGR 400    Introduction to Electrical Circuits and Devices    3 Units

Prerequisite: PHYS 421 with a grade of "C" or better
Course Transferable to UC/CSU
Hours: 54 hours LEC ; 18 hours LAB
Description: This course will provide engineering students with circuit analysis concepts and applications that will be of value in any engineering field as well as a solid foundation for electrical engineering and related majors. The course includes the analysis of circuits with resistors, inductors, capacitors, and independent and dependent voltage and current sources. Many analysis techniques will be applied to DC and AC circuits. Differential equations will be used to find the transient response of circuits. Power calculations will be performed on both DC and AC circuits, including an introduction to three-phase AC power. This course is required for most engineering Bachelors of Science degrees.

ENGR 412    Properties of Materials    3 Units

Prerequisite: CHEM 400 and PHYS 411 with grades of "C" or better
Course Transferable to UC/CSU
Hours: 36 hours LEC ; 54 hours LAB
Description: This is an introductory course on the relationship of the internal structure of materials to their properties. Topics include crystalline structure, imperfections, phases and phase diagrams, steels and non-ferrous alloys, polymers, ceramics, semiconductors, and corrosion. Students will apply the concepts in laboratory activities and will use typical materials testing equipment and analysis techniques. This course is required for CRC's A.S.-Engineering, Civil/Mechanical Engineering option degree, and many university engineering B.S. degrees.

ENGR 420    Statics    3 Units

Prerequisite: MATH 401 and PHYS 411 with grades of "C" or better
Course Transferable to UC/CSU
Hours: 54 hours LEC
Description: This course covers analysis of two and three dimensional force systems for bodies in static equilibrium. Vector and scalar analysis methods address forces acting on rigid bodies, trusses, frames, and machines. Students will calculate internal forces in members and will create shear and bending moment diagrams for beams. Friction problems will include slipping vs tipping. Students will learn methods to calculate centroids and moments of inertia for bodies that are combinations of simple geometric shapes. This course is required for most engineering majors.

ENGR 498    Work Experience in Engineering    1-4 Units

Prerequisite: None.
Course Transferable to CSU
Hours: 300 hours LAB
Description: This course provides students with opportunities to develop marketable skills in preparation for employment or advancement within their current job. Course content will include understanding the application of education to the workforce; completion of required forms, which document the student's progress and hours spent at the work site; and developing workplace skills and competencies. During the course of the semester, the student is required to fulfill an 18 hour orientation and 75 hours of related paid work experience, or 60 hours of unpaid work experience for one unit. An additional 75 or 60 hours of related work experience is required for each additional unit. The course may be taken again when there is new or expanded learning on the job for a maximum of 16 units.
