Course Overview

EAS 199A, 199B, and 199C constitute an introduction to skills, modern tools, teamwork, design methodology and professional practices of typical engineers. In EAS 199B, students learn to use mass and energy balances to design temperature and salinity controller for a closed loop water system. They develop stronger programming skills (building on skills developed in EAS 199A), sensor input, sensor calibration, and on/off control of heaters and solenoid valves. They use written and oral communication as part of assignments and class projects.

The curriculum uses lecture, and extensive hands-on experiences to introduce students to the practice of engineering and to motivate the need for courses in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. The curriculum is fast-paced and used parallel threads of instruction that boosts experiential learning and creates dynamic learners with a can-do attitude.

Students are expected to turn in homework problems that are substantially the result of their own work. Study groups, discussion of assignments among students, collective brainstorming for solutions, and sharing of advice is encouraged. Copying of assignments, computer files, graphs, or other means of duplicating material that is turned in for grading is expressly forbidden. Cheating on exams will result in a zero grade for the exam.


Students will be required to use Excel, Word, PowerPoint, MATLAB, and Solidworks. This software is available in the computer lab in room 325 of the Engineering Building. Students are expected to have their own laptop computers that they bring to class. Students will be expected to use Excel, MATLAB and Solidworks during in-class exams.
