ENGR 105 - Introduction to Engineering

1.00 Cr
This one-credit course is a broad-brush overview of the various aspects of engineering with emphasis on civil engineering, but with exposure to other areas of engineering. Focus is on three main areas: 1) Being a successful engineering student; 2) understanding engineering in a broad context that includes presentations by professional engineers, and exposure to ethics, licensing, and societies; and 3) working on teams to attain common goals on projects involving surveying and GPS (global positioning system) and bridges made of popsicle sticks or manila file folders. Students will be led through a reverse engineering activity by determining how a simple coffee maker works and the physical processes involved. One or two field trips will take students to various locations in and near Helena to look at engineering in action. One hour of lecture per week. There are no prerequisites for the course.
