ENGR 1: Want to Be an Engineer?
This course is designed for you if you are an incoming first year student who has a hypothesis that you want to be an engineer but don't yet know what kind. As a scientist, you know that you need data to test your hypothesis. As a design thinker, you know that there is no way forward except to be exposed to different things and weigh the results. As a potential engineer, you know that you need lots of information to make a decision. Each week a panel of faculty from engineering majors and related fields will present and answer questions with the goal of helping you discover if their field is right for you.

ENGR 10: Introduction to Engineering Analysis
Integrated approach to the fundamental scientific principles that are the cornerstones of engineering analysis: conservation of mass, atomic species, charge, momentum, angular momentum, energy, production of entropy expressed in the form of balance equations on carefully defined systems, and incorporating simple physical models. Emphasis is on setting up analysis problems arising in engineering. Topics: simple analytical solutions, numerical solutions of linear algebraic equations, and laboratory experiences. Provides the foundation and tools for subsequent engineering courses. Prerequisite: AP Physics and AP Calculus or equivalent.

ENGR 15: Dynamics
The application of Newton's Laws to solve 2D and 3D static and dynamic problems, particle and rigid body dynamics, freebody diagrams, and equations of motion, with application to mechanical, biomechanical, and aerospace systems. Computer numerical solution and dynamic response. Prerequisites: Calculus (differentiation and integration) such as
MATH 41; and
ENGR 14 (statics and strength) or a mechanics course in physics such as

ENGR 20: Introduction to Chemical Engineering (CHEMENG 20)
Overview of chemical engineering through discussion and engineering analysis of physical and chemical processes. Topics: overall staged separations, material and energy balances, concepts of rate processes, energy and mass transport, and kinetics of chemical reactions. Applications of these concepts to areas of current technological importance: biotechnology, energy, production of chemicals, materials processing, and purification. Prerequisite:
CHEM 31.

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 40M: An Intro to Making: What is EE
Is a handson class where students learn to make stuff. Through the process of building, you are introduced to the basic areas of EE. Students build a "useless box" and learn about circuits, feedback, and programming hardware, a light display for your desk and bike and learn about coding, transforms, and LEDs, a solar charger and an EKG machine and learn about power, noise, feedback, more circuits, and safety. And you get to keep the toys you build. Prerequisite:
CS 106A.
