  • CVEN 2121 - Analytical Mechanics 1
    Primary Instructor - Summer 2023
    Applies mechanics to the study of static equilibrium of rigid and elastic bodies. Includes composition/resolution of forces; moments/couples; equivalent force systems; free-body diagrams; equilibrium of particles and rigid bodies; forces in trusses/beams; frictional forces; first/second moments of area; moments and products of inertia. Degree credit not granted for this course and GEEN 2851 and MCEN 2023.
  • GEEN 1017 - Engineering Drawing.
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2022 / Spring 2023 / Spring 2024
    Introduces CAD software, relevant concepts, including orthographic projection, sections, engineering drawing, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, and rapid manufacturing methods. Final design project involves rapid prototyping. Not recommended for AREN or CVEN majors.
  • GEEN 1400 - Engineering Projects
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2021 / Spring 2022 / Fall 2022 / Spring 2023 / Fall 2023 / Spring 2024
    First-year students solve real engineering design problems in interdisciplinary teams. Design projects vary by section. Curriculum focuses on iterative design process, teamwork and team dynamics, supporting design with testing and analysis, and technical writing. Completed projects are exhibited at an end-of-semester design expo. Students responsible for contributing towards their design project budget and poster costs, and purchasing safety glasses (approximately $75).
  • GEEN 2851 - Statics for Engineers
    Primary Instructor - Summer 2022 / Summer 2023
    Examines vector treatment of force systems and their resultants; equilibrium of frames and machines, including internal forces and three-dimensional configurations; static friction; properties of surfaces, including first and second moments; hydrostatics; and minimum potential energy and stability. Degree credit not granted for this course and CVEN 2121 and MCEN 2023.
  • MCEN 2023 - Statics and Structures
    Primary Instructor - Summer 2022 / Summer 2023
    Covers statics of particles, equivalent force systems, rigid bodies, equilibrium of rigid bodies in two and three dimensions, analysis of truss and frame structures, uniaxially-loaded members, distributed force systems and friction. Degree credit not granted for this course and CVEN 2121 or GEEN 2851.
