NEW COURSE ANNOUNCMENT FOR FALL 2012

New Course Offering- Fall 2012

EGN 181 Engineering Tools: Mathematica

Course Description: An introductory course to help students become familiar with Mathematica as a general-purpose computational and visualization tool. Topics covered include symbolic and numerical computations, graphics and visualization, and basics of the Mathematica programming language. Students will use Mathematica in several hands-on exercises to solve typical computational problems.

Course is being taught on Fridays from 11am-12:15pm on the Gorham Campus in the John Mitchell Center Room 270

EGN 182 Engineering Tools: Solidworks

Course Description: An introductory course to help students become familiar with SolidWorks and its use as a design tool for engineering. Students will use hands-on labs to create three dimensional solid models together with their orthographic views and convert them to computer design files. Students will learn the basics of building parts, dimensioning, tolerances, manufacturing drawings, assemblies, assembly drawings, and bills of material. They learn best practices, essential parametric sketching techniques, and time-saving shortcuts for making three dimensional parts and assemblies.

Course is being taught on Thursday nights from 5:00-6:40pm on the Gorham Campus in John Mitchell Center Room 270.
