Engineering Fundamentals (ENF)

ENF-1166  Statics and Strength of Materials  (3 Credits)  

An introduction to the concepts of statics and strength of materials. Students will apply competencies in mathematics and physics to solve engineering problems. It provides students with the fundamentals required to study structural design courses. Statics, the first part of the course, is primarily concerned with the study of forces acting on structural members which are at rest. Topics include forces and their effects, resultants of coplanar force systems, equilibrium of coplanar force systems, analysis of trusses, centroids, and moments of inertia. The second part of the course primarily deals with analysis and design. The topics to be covered include direct stresses and strains, shear stresses and strains, design properties, thermal stresses, torsion, bending stresses, deflection and combined stresses. Not available for supplemental. Not eligible for Prior Learning Assessment.

Instruction (5)

Requisite courses: Take MTH-1150 (Required, Previous).

ENF-1170  Engineering Properties I  (3 Credits)  

An introduction to the engineering properties of soils and hot mix asphalt as they relate to the civil engineering industry. Topics will include an overview of geological processes, rock and mineral classification system, fundamental engineering concepts and calculations for the selection and design of appropriate soil foundations and asphalt pavement structures. Laboratory projects will be incorporated in the course to supplement the lecture material and to reinforce and supplement theoretical concepts. Not available for supplemental. Not eligible for Prior Learning Assessment.

ENF-1180  Engineering Materials and Construction Practices  (3 Credits)  

An introduction to various engineering materials as well as principles and practices of light construction. A study of the structure, behavior, processing, properties and applications of building materials. Topics will also include accepted building construction practices and application of the Building Code. Laboratory work will be used to reinforce and supplement theoretical concepts.
