This course introduces students to the engineering design process and to related safety and ethical issues. Students will use software and hardware to calculate, design, build, and demonstrate projects. They will also disassemble and study devices to find the engineering principles embedded in the design. Examples will be selected from all the engineering specialties. Code 2 course fee.
Applications of the methods of mathematical analysis to the solution of engineering problems using microcomputers. Programs to solve real-life engineering problems will be written using a high-level programming language. Additional software packages will be investigated for use in problem solving. Code 4 course fee.
This course introduces students to graphic skills associated with engineering design, particularly those related to computer-aided design and drafting (CADD). The course provides the student with an understanding of design concepts, features and limitations of a micro-computer based CAD system. The majority of the course time consists of laboratory exercises. In the context of design, the course will cover fundamental aspects of engineering graphics including elementary projection, lines and planes, auxiliary views, edge views, oblique projection, angle between planes, angles between lines and planes, and intersection and revolution. Graphics will stress solutions of elementary design problems. Code 4 course fee.
This is the first part of a basic program in the fundamentals of computer aided drafting/design (CAD). The course provides the student with an understanding of the concepts, features, and limitations of a microcomputer-based CAD system. The course shows how to use AutoCAD to set up drawings and add lines, circles, arcs, other shapes, geometric constructions and text. Code 4 course fee.
This is the second part of a basic program in the fundamentals of computer aided drafting/design (CAD). The course continues from the prerequisite course with diminishing, blocks, attributes, section views, and an introduction to three-dimensional drawing. The course shows how to use AutoCAD to draw and edit polylines; set layers, linetypes and create colors; create section lines and graphic patterns. Code 2 course fee.
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) deal with the development and utilization of maps and data. GIS integrates the display capabilities of a computerized map with the information management tools of a spreadsheet. This course will include an overview of maps and computer systems, a look at models for attribute and spatial data, the organization of data in a GIS, and how a GIS can be utilized. Code 2 course fee.
This course will introduce the aspects of Solid Modeling and Parametic Modeling, using Autodesk Inventor. The student starts with constructing basic shapes to building intelligent solid molds, creating multi-view drawings and assembly models. Code 2 course fee.
A quantitative study of forces that act on engineering structures in equilibrium. Force system classification, resultant forces and conditions for equilibrium of rigid bodies in two and three dimensions are covered. Mathematical principles of vectors and calculus are applied to trusses, frames, and simple machines. Centroids (center of mass) are developed and used in the analysis of stresses on beams. Special engineering topics discussed will include dry friction with an introduction to virtual work. The concept of moment of inertia included in discussion will establish the link between statics and solid mechanics. Code 1 course fee.
A study of the motion of bodies without reference to the forces which cause the motion and the action of forces on acting the bodies to their resulting motions. Rectlilinear and curvilinear motion in two and three dimensions using rectangular, normal/tangential and polar coordinate system are investigated in kinematics. Kinetics includes discussions on work, potential and kinetic energy. Pulse and momentum are analyzed from a special treatment of Newton's second law along with the concept of conservation of energy and momentum. Code 1 course fee.
This is a capstone course which integrates learning outcomes from the engineering statics, dynamics, and graphics, mathematics, and science courses in the AS-Engineering program. The course is developed to utilize key concepts of mechanics of materials in various design applications. Key topics include the concept of stress at a point, strain, and stress-strain relations, stress trans- formation, and structural failure theories. Students will apply these concepts to solve engineering design problems, and student teams will work on open-ended engineering projects. Projects may involve disassembly and analysis of some manufactured products to gain an under- standing of the engineering design. Technical writing and oral presentation along with project management skills are emphasized. Code 1 course fee.
Circuits are studied using the analytical tools of the engineer. The required theorems and techniques are derived first using resistive circuits, and then applied to RC, RL, and RLC networks. Transient analysis of these networks is then studied, followed by sinusoidal steady-state analysis, and sinusoidal power calculations. Laboratory work is correlated with the lectures. Code 4 course fee.
A continuation of ENGR 251 beginning with mutual inductance, and series and parallel resonance. The Laplace transform is introduced, and its use in circuit analysis is thoroughly studied. Other topics include: Fourier series and the Fourier transform, two-port networks, and transfer functions. Laboratory work is correlated with the lectures. Code 2 course fee.
This course offers students the opportunity to apply the academic knowledge gained from the classroom to a work environment. By completing internships students will be involved in emerging workplace trends and enhance their employability. Internships will be directly related to career goals in the areas of Technology and Engineering. Students wishing to transfer their internship credits to a four-year baccalaureate program should consult the college or university to which they wish to transfer. Prerequisite: Applicants must comply with the Ocean County College Internship Guidelines and complete an Internship Application. Applicants must also have an overall GPA of 2.5.
