A hands-on introduction to civil, computer, electrical, and/or mechanical engineering.  Topics include the use of the computer in engineering and an introduction to the design process.  Student teams led by faculty (typically the students' academic advisor) complete design projects in a particular discipline.

Covers rectilinear and curvilinear motions, force, mass, acceleration, projectiles, pendulums, inertia forces in machines, work and energy, impulse, and momentum and impact.

Fundamental mathematical principles and techniques of numerical methods and how to apply them, using high level computer languages, to solve engineering problems. Develop skills in mathematical computer modeling and analysis of engineering problems.

Fundamental principles and experiments in thermal and fluid systems. Flow measurement, calorimetry, psychrometrics and engine performance. Experimental projects in thermo/fluids engineering.

An introduction to thermodynamics principles and the fundamentals of energy analysis.  Properties of pure substances.  First and second laws of thermodynamics.  Exergy and irreversibility.  Gas mixtures and psychometrics.  Simple gas and vapor cycles.

One- and two-dimensional steady and transient conduction in isotropic solids. Numerical methods in conduction. Forced and free convection in single phase fluids. Thermal radiation and radiation heat transfer.

Includes the statistical analysis of experimental data, error analysis and uncertainty analysis. Basic electrical and mechanical sensing devices will be covered as part of the complete data acquisition and processing system. Included is measurement of displacement, velocity, acceleration, pressure, flow, temperature, force, torque, strain vibration and other physical phenomena.

Development of the Navier-Stokes equations for laminar and turbulent flow. Methods for discretizing and solving the equations. Turbulent flow and turbulence modeling. Applications using commercial CFD software.

"To recognize those engineering students who by their scholarly achievement have brought honor to the College of Engineering at the University of Evansville, and who have demonstrated the willingness to be of service to society, and who have embraced the liberal arts tradition of the University; and to recognize those alumni by whose achievements have earned the respect of the engineering profession; and to foster in all engineers the same..."
