Program Enrollment and Degree Data

Lower Division Requirements

BIO153 Anatomy & Physiology I w/ Lab

BIO153 Anatomy & Physiology I w/ Lab

This course is designed for professional nursing and general college students. Included are a general survey of human histology and the study of structure and function of organ systems of the human body, including the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, endocrine and nervous systems. Structure and function of sensory organs are also included in the course. Correlated by laboratory experience and demonstration. Lecture (3 units) and required laboratory (1 unit). Additional lab fee. (4 units; Fall/Spring)

+

EGR241 Statics

EGR241 Statics

Study of forces, moments, free-body diagrams, friction, equilibrium, first and second moments of lines, centers of pressure, mass and gravity, and moments of inertia. Prerequisites: EGR 182 or MAT 245. (3 units; Fall)

+

EGR242 Strength of Materials

EGR242 Strength of Materials

Introduction of stress and strain, stress transformations, analysis of stresses, strain, and deflections in axial members, beams, and torsional shafts. Analysis of pressure vessels. Prerequisites: EGR 241 and either EGR 182 or MAT 245. (3 units; Spring)

+

MAT245 Analytical Geometry & Calculus I

MAT245 Analytical Geometry & Calculus I

Basic concepts of analytical geometry, limits and derivatives, differentials and rates, integration, definite and indefinite integrals, differentiation of logarithmic and exponential functions. Prerequisite: MAT 135, 145, EGR 182, or sufficient SAT, ACT or math placement exam scores and appropriate high school mathematics background. (4 units; Fall/Spring)

+

Upper Division Requirements

EGR305 Engineering Statistics

EGR305 Engineering Statistics

An introduction to the primary statistical and probabilistic models used in the collection and interpretation of engineering data. The focus is on summary techniques, regression models, application of the Central Limit Theorem, confidence intervals, and recurrence intervals.Monte Carlo simulation techniques are used to estimate the failure likelihood of an engineering system. Prerequisite: MAT 245. (2 units; Interdisciplinary; Fall)

+

EGR361 Introduction to Biomechanics

EGR361 Introduction to Biomechanics

The course introduces the fundamental principles of mechanics applied to study the physiology of biological systems with emphasis of analyzing human movements. Primary topic areas will include kinematics, statics, and kinetics of human movement including joint and segment position (acceleration, velocity, force and torque; work and power; and inverse solution methods), and an overview of musculoskeletal anatomy and physiology. Prerequisites: BIO153 and EGR242. (3 units; Fall)

+

EGR365 Biomedical Engr Rsrch &Instrmntn

EGR365 Biomedical Engr Rsrch &Instrmntn

This course focuses on laboratory research projects and topics of current interest that are not normally covered in other established courses. Students are expected to be actively engaged in the research and design activity by performing experiments, simulations, or related lab tasks and also by conducting literature review for a project. Through participation in experimental/engineering designs, students will learn how to collect and generate data for papers, posters, and presentations to be used in a professional seminar or journal articles. Content varies from year to year, and are determined by both instructor and student interest. Prerequisite: Permission of the Department Chair. Concurrent Requisite: EGR305. (3 units; Spring)

+

EGR461 Rehabilitation Engineering

EGR461 Rehabilitation Engineering

The course provides a basic understanding of assistive technology research and application in: wheelchair technology, augmentative communication, computer access, transportation safety, home and work site modifications, environmental access, and prosthetics. Issues related to terminology, interdisciplinary communication, consumer empowerment, information resources and service delivery development are also stressed. Course includes a weekly laboratory session that incorporates in vivo non-invasive kinematics measurements and also includes a design project focusing on prosthetic devices. Prerequisite: EGR242. (3 units; Fall)

+

EGR491 Research Project

EGR491 Research Project

This special registration permits the completion of upper division degree requirements for transfer or other students, program requirement changes, or other special circumstances in which students have partial but not full credit toward a specific degree requirement. It also provides the opportunity for recognition of supervised academic experiences that are not included in traditional curriculum. Registration requires approval by the dean and sponsoring faculty member. The determination of degree credits is at the time of registration. Prerequisite: EGR 101 and Permission of the Dean. (1-3 units; Fall)
