Introduces mechanics of vector forces and space, scalar mass and time, including S.I. and U.S. customary units. Teaches equilibrium, free-body diagrams, moments, couples, distributed forces, centroids, moments of inertia analysis of two-force and multi-force members and friction and internal forces.  Lecture 3 hours per week. 

(3 cr.) - Presents approach to kinematics of particles in linear and curvilinear motion. Includes kinematics of rigid bodies in plane motion. Teaches Newton's second law, work-energy and power, impulse and momentum, and problem solving using computers.

An introduction to basic computer-aided drafting (AutoCAD). Emphasis is placed on drawing setup; creating and modifying geometry; storing and retrieving predefined shapes; placing, rotating, and scaling objects, adding text and dimensions, using layers, coordinate systems; as well as input and output devices. In addition, basic 3D animation of objects will be covered using the Blender 3D creation suite.

An introduction to computer concepts, logic, and computer programming. Includes designing, coding, debugging, testing, and documenting programs using the Visual Basic for Applications programming language of MS Excel and other MS Office programs. An overview of the MS EXCEL interface and various methods for entering/editing data and writing simple formulas will also be covered.
