Course Descriptions

GNE

GNE 160 Computing Methods for Engineers and Scientists (3)
Two hours lecture and three hours laboratory per week. Introduction to algorithm design, programming structures, and data structures. Engineering calculation software including programming languages, spreadsheets, and simulation software. Application of computing methods to engineering problems and data analysis. Spring.

GNE 171 Engineering Mechanic Dynamics (2)
Two hours of lecture per week. Kinematics and kinetics of particles and rigid bodies; rectangular, normal and tangential, radial and transverse components; translation and rotation; force and acceleration; impulse; momentum; work and energy; impact. Spring.
Prerequisites: Statics and Calculus II.

GNE 172 Statics and Dynamics (4)
Four hours of lecture per week. This course provides fundamental principles, methods and applications of engineering mechanics. Development and discussion of analytic models for rigid-body mechanics are used to apply theories. Rigid bodies of a practical nature and at rest or in motion are covered. Fall.
Prerequisites: Algebra, derivative and integral calculus.

GNE 273 Mechanics of Materials (3)
Three hours of lecture per week. Theories of stress, deformation and stability of common structural materials subjected to various force systems. Spring.
Prerequisites: Integral calculus and statics.

GNE 330 Professional Engineering Skills Seminar (0.5)
Two hour seminar approximately every other week. Professional skills needed by engineers to be successful in their profession including teamwork, ethics, communications, impact of engineering solutions, life-long learning, and contemporary issues. Seminar topics include industry outlook, professional organizations, networking, finance, management, personnel issues, among other topics. Topics will typically be covered on a three-year cycle. Fall and Spring.

GNE 410 Structures (4)
Three hours of lecture, three hours of computation laboratory and discussion per week. Engineering principles in the analysis, planning design and construction of components and framed structures under various types of loadings. The proportioning of wood, steel and composite members and the design of statically determinate structural systems. Emphasis is placed on the relationship between theoretical stress analysis and codes and specifications for appropriate materials and structural design practices. Fall.
Prerequisite(s): GNE 273 and scientific computing.

GNE 461 Air Pollution Engineering (3)
Three hours of lecture and discussion per week. Study of physical, chemical, legislative, and meteorological aspects of air pollution and its control. Air quality and emission standards. Local and global effects of air pollution and atmospheric dispersion modeling. Design principles of air pollution control devices. Fall.
Prerequisites: 1 year of college-level physics, chemistry and calculus. Note: Credit will not be granted for both GNE 461 and GNE 661.

GNE 530 Professional Engineering Skills Seminar (0.5)
Two hour seminar approximately every other week. Professional skills needed by engineers to be successful in their profession including teamwork, ethics, communications, impact of engineering solutions, life-long learning, and contemporary issues. Seminar topics include industry outlook, professional organizations, networking, finance, management, personnel issues, among other topics. Topics will typically be covered on a three-year cycle. A project is required. Fall and Spring.

GNE 661 Air Pollution Engineering (3)
Three hours of lecture and discussion per week. Study of physical, chemical, legislative, and meteorological aspects of air pollution and its control. Air quality and emission standards. Local and global effects of air pollution and atmospheric dispersion modeling. Design principles of air pollution control devices. Fall.
Prerequisites: 1 year of college-level physics, chemistry and calculus. Note: Credit will not be granted for both GNE 461 and GNE 661.
