Course Descriptions

Engineering (ENGR)

100: Engineering Fundamentals. (3-3-0)
Corequisite: MATH 250
A foundation course which outlines the basic principles of engineering, emphasizes problem solving, computer applications. (

201: Engineering Materials. (3-3-0)
Prerequisites: ENGR 100 and ENGR 220
A study of the basic principles which include the stress-strain properties of engineering materials, analysis and design of mechanical members subject to axial loading, torsion, bending, shear and combined loading, pressure vessels, Mohr’s circle and deflection in beams.

220: Statics. (3-3-0)
Prerequisites: ENGR 100 and MATH 250
Prerequisite or corequisite: MATH 251

Resultants and equilibrium of force systems, stress and strain, truss and frame analysis, torsion, bending.

221: Circuits (3-3-0)
Prerequisites: ENGR 100 and MATH 250
Prerequisite or corequisite: MATH 251

A fundamental course covering concepts including, units and laws, network theorems, network simplification, phasors, and AC solution of circuits, power and electronic applications.

222: Thermodynamics. (3-3-0)
Prerequisites: ENGR 100, MATH 250, and MATH 251
Fundamental concepts, properties of pure substance, work, heat, first and second laws of thermodynamics, entropy, cycle analysis.

270: GIS in Engineering (3-3-0)
GIS in engineering is an introductory geographic information system (GIS) course. This course will provide professional training with a computer-based solution involving the collection, synthesis, analysis and communication of spatially related information within an area. Students will learn its widespread usage in local, state and federal governments. Students will also learn how to add intelligence to the computer-aided drawing (CAD) maps. This course will expose students to various planning and engineering tasks, including site analysis, water quality analysis, and underground services and soli analysis.

280: Introduction to Engineering Drawings and CAD (3-3-0)
Prerequisite: Instructor permission
Introduction to Engineering Drawings and CAD is an engineering elective that provides students with knowledge of reading, interpreting all engineering drawings, design procedures, basic technical drawing skills, and the ability to prepare the engineering drawings using computer aided drafting (CAD) software. It provides students with many opportunities related to design and technical drawing skills, and teach students how to communicate design ideas using a CAD software and drawings.

299: Engineering Internship (3-3-0)
Prerequisite: Instructor permission
ENGR 299 internships are practical work experience related to various fields of engineering. It provides students with knowledge of what engineers do, career opportunities, and how one might better prepare to be a successful professional engineer. In collaboration with local companies, BPCC students will expand upon the theory and concepts taught in engineering courses and learn the real world problem solving skills.
