Course Suggestions for Spring 2012

This information will be most useful to students who are following the department curriculum fairly closely. If you are not (e.g. because you are a transfer student) and you have questions about which courses to register for, contact the CTI advisement office.

The History of Engineering course is HST 318.  It is offered Spring 2012 with class number 23230 or 20806.

Freshman

The advice below describes the plan for a typical second semester freshman. This plan assumes you have completed EGR 101, at least MAT 170, and at least ENG 101 by the end of Fall 2010. Contact the CTI advisement office if you do not expect to do this.
  • Register for EGR 102: Intro to Engineering Design II.
  • Register for EGR 104: Critical Inquiry in Engineering. You must register both for the Tuesday lecture (class # 20642) and for a recitation section (class # 23689, 23690, 23692, 23693, 23694).
  • Register for your next math course (probably MAT 265 or MAT 266 unless you have already taken these).
  • If you have not completed ENG 102, register for it.
  • If you will have completed MAT 265 by the end of Fall 2010, register for PHY 121.

Sophomores

Make sure you have completed ENG 102, EGR 201, PHY 121 and at least MAT 266 by end of Fall 2011. Contact the CTI advisement office if you do not expect to do this.

You should register for EGR 202 Spring Multidisciplinary Project and EGR 224 Materials Selection. Register for one of these pairs: class #'s 17574 and 16103, or class #'s 20643 and 20644.

You should also register for four of the following modules that you have not yet taken. (Note: These modules are in either Session A or Session B)

Session A (1/5 to 2/24)
    • EGR 221 Engineering Mechanics: Statics (# 13417)
    • EGR 222    Mechanics of Materials (# 13418)
    • EGR 227    Manufacturing Processes I (# 14454)
    • EGR 238 Feedback Control (# 13419)
    • EGR 294 Topic: Manufacturing Processes II (# 20650)
Session B (2/29 to 4/24)
    • EGR 230  Fluid Mechanics (# 18253)
    • EGR 231  Engineering Mechanics:Dynamics (# 13434)
    • EGR 294  Topic: Design of Experiments (# 20647)
    • EGR 294  Topic: Manufacturing Processes II (# 20651)

When registering for these modules, you should keep in mind that each emphasis area has prerequisite modules, and make sure you take those modules that are prerequisites for the emphasis areas you are considering:
  • Civil emphasis area: EGR 221 Engineering Mechanics: Statics, EGR 222 Mechanics of Materials, and EGR 230 Fluid Mechanics
  • Electrical emphasis area: EGR 225 Instrumentation I, EGR 235 Instrumentation II, and EGR 238 Feedback Control
  • Mechanical emphasis area: EGR 221 Engineering Mechanics: Statics, EGR 222 Mechanics of Materials, EGR 231 Engineering Mechanics:Dynamics
  • Robotics emphasis area: EGR 221 Engineering Mechanics: Statics, EGR 222 Mechanics of Materials, EGR 231 Engineering Mechanics:Dynamics, EGR 225 Instrumentation I, EGR 235 Instrumentation II
