Courses available in first year:

Engineering 1010

Engineering Statics is the first course in engineering mechanics. Forces and moments are described with vector algebra, leading to a description of the equilibrium conditions for particles and solid bodies. The importance of free body diagrams is highlighted. This knowledge is then applied to the analysis of trusses, frames and machines. Additional topics include an examination of friction and the concepts of centre of force, centroids and second moments of area.

Lectures: Three hours per week

Tutorials: One hour per week

Prerequisite: Level III Physics or Physics 1020 and Mathematics 1000 (which may be taken concurrently)

Engineering 1020

Introduction to Programming is an introduction to algorithmic problem solving techniques and computer programming, including basic program control structures (sequence, call, branch, loop) and data representations, functional decomposition and design by contract. Exercises and examples are drawn from a variety of engineering disciplines and are implemented using a standard modern programming language.

Lectures: Three hours per week

Laboratory/Tutorial: At least eight two-hour sessions

Prerequisite: Level III Advanced Mathematics or Mathematics 1090

Engineering 1030

Engineering Graphics and Design provides two complementary competencies. First, it provides an introduction to the fundamentals of graphic communication, including orthographic projections, three dimensional pictorials, sectioning and dimensioning. Both sketching and CAD are utilized. Second, the course introduces students to standard design methodologies and technical communication. The graphics and design competencies are reinforced through laboratory and project exercises.

Lectures: Three hours per week

Laboratory/Tutorial: Two hours per week

Prerequisite: Level III Advanced Mathematics or Mathematics 1090

Engineering 1040

Mechanisms and Electric Circuits (2015-16 pilot curriculum) will engage and prepare students for Memorial University’s engineering program by: exercising student judgement and understanding of an engineering mindset to problem formulation, solution, and assessment of what is a “reasonable” result; introducing students to software environments to increase their ability and comfort in using computers as engineering problem-solving tools; and introducing problems that relate to the variety of engineering disciplines offered in the program.

Students in the electrical circuits portion of the course will be taught relevant theory, and the application of problem-solving skills, judgement and visualization to the solution of electrical circuit problems.

Lectures: Three hours per week

Laboratory: Two hours per week

Prerequisite: Level III Physics or Physics 1051 (which may be taken concurrently) and Mathematics 1000 (which may be taken concurrently)

Note: The engineering course pairs 1010/1020 and 1030/1040 are offered in single slots so that students can only take one from each pair in the Fall and Winter semesters. All four courses are offered separately in the Spring semester.
