GENERAL ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY (GNET)

098  Pre-Technical Mathematics (4-0-4). Credit not applicable toward degrees. A study of fundamental topics from arithmetic, algebra, and geometry. Designed for freshman enrolled in engineering technology programs who have insufficient mathematical background and/or ACT scores in mathematics of less than 19 or COMPASS Engineering Math score of 58 or less.

101  Technical Physics I (3-3-4). A study of mechanics and heat. Topics discussed include vectors, concurrent and nonconcurrent forces, kinematics and linear motion, work, energy, simple machines, impulse, momentum, thermal expansion, specific heat, and change of state. PR: ACT score in mathematics of 19 or above, or GNET 098 or COMPASS Engineering Math score of 59 or higher.

102  Technical Physics II (3-3-4). A study of the basic concepts of electricity and the application of these concepts to fundamental direct and alternating current circuits. The principles of electromagnetism and electrostatics are also studied and applied to problems involving the production and utilization of electric energy. PR: ACT score in mathematics of 19 or above, or GNET 098.

115  Technical Mathematics I (4-0-4). A study of fundamental algebraic concepts and operations, functions and graphs, trigonometric functions and their graphs, linear equations and determinants, factoring, fractions, vectors, and triangles. PR: ACT score in mathematics of 19 or above, or GNET 098.

116  Technical Mathematics II (4-0-4). A study of exponents and radicals, complex numbers, logarithms, systems of equations, theory of equations, inequalities, determinants, matrices, variations, progressions, properties of trigonometric functions, and inverse trigonometric functions. PR: GNET 115.

299  Problems in Engineering Technology (1-3 hours credit, may be repeated to a maximum of 3 hours credit). Independent study on a problem in a field in engineering technology under the supervision of an instructor, culminating in a written and/or oral report. PR: Consent of instructor and dean.

490  Topics in Engineering Technology (3 hours credit per semester). Advanced formal course in a field in engineering technology. Specific subject matter will be announced and indicated by subtitle in schedule and student transcript. PR: Consent of instructor.

499  Projects in Engineering Technology (1-5-3). Independent study of an individual project in a field in engineering technology under the supervision of an instructor, culminating in a written report and/or an oral defense of the project before a select faculty committee. PR: Consent of instructor and dean.
