ENGR 14: Intro to Solid Mechanics
Introduction to engineering analysis using the principles of engineering solid mechanics. Builds on the math and physical reasoning concepts in
Physics 41 to develop skills in evaluation of engineered systems across a variety of fields. Foundational ideas for more advanced solid mechanics courses such as ME80 or
CEE101A. Interactive lecture sessions focused on mathematical application of key concepts, with weekly complementary lab session on testing and designing systems that embody these concepts. Limited enrollment, subject to instructor approval. Prerequisite:
Physics 41.

ENGR 21: Engineering of Systems
A highlevel look at techniques for analyzing and designing complex, multidisciplinary engineering systems, such as aircraft, spacecraft, automobiles, power plants, cellphones, robots, biomedical devices, and many others. The need for multilevel design, modeling and simulation approaches, computationbased design, and hardware and softwareintheloop simulations will be demonstrated through a variety of examples and case studies. Several aspects of system engineering will be applied to the design of largescale interacting systems and contrasted with subsystems such as hydraulic systems, electrical systems, and brake systems. The use of designthinking, storyboarding, mockups, sensitivity analysis, simulation, teambased design, and the development of presentation skills will be fostered through several realistic examples in several fields of engineering.

ENGR 60: Engineering Economics and Sustainability (CEE 146S)
Engineering Economics is a subset of the field of economics that draws upon the logic of economics, but adds that analytical power of mathematics and statistics. The concepts developed in this course are broadly applicable to many professional and personal decisions, including making purchasing decisions, deciding between project alternatives, evaluating different processes, and balancing environmental and social costs against economic costs. The concepts taught in this course will be increasingly valuable as students climb the carrier ladder in private industry, a nongovernmental organization, a public agency, or in founding their own startup. Eventually, the ability to make informed decisions that are based in fundamental analysis of alternatives is a part of every career. As such, this course is recommended for engineering and nonengineering students alike. This course is taught exclusively online in every quarter it is offered. (Prerequisites:
MATH 19 or 20 or approved equivalent.)
