Engineering (ENGR)

ENGR 10 – Freshman Engineering Seminar     0 credit hours

Overview of the engineering field as well as major specific information. Information will be provided to help with transitional needs to UNL and the college of engineering (time management, study skills, and resources), involvement opportunities (student organizations, research, and study abroad), tours of engineering facilities for experiential learning, and interactive learning to increase business knowledge and skills.

ENGR 101 – Introduction to Engineering     3 credit hours

Students will examine relevant and practical industrial and commercial engineering applications to gain necessary engineering skills that will help them succeed as a student as well as a professional engineer. A variety of engineering disciplines will be highlighted and discussed, as well as topics in the underlying physical, chemical, and biological scientific principles and processes related to each topic. The class will use a specified focus area that involves real world applications to aid in the conceptualization and learning of the course material.
Corequisite: MATH 103 or MATH 115 or MATH 202.
