Engineers are often the bridge between a scientific discovery and its application to a real-world problem. Morton College's Engineering courses provide students with the knowledge and experience to apply science and mathematics principles to technical problems and discover solutions that benefit both industry and consumers.
Engineering students may pursue careers in Computer Assisted Design (CAD) drafters and designers or further studies at four-year bachelor's degree seeking universities year in Engineering and other technical fields.
Covers use of AutoCAD software for learning techniques used by engineers in graphical problem solving. Topics include points in space, lines in space, true lengths of lines, true size of angles, true size of planes, bearing, slope, strike, dip, areas and volumes. Lecture two hours, laboratory three hours per week. NOTE: EGR 110 is equivalent to CAD 102
Covers use of AutoCAD software for preparation and analysis of assembly drawings. Topics include layout drawings, assembly drawings, weldments, dimensioning for interchangeable assembly, datum dimensioning, geometric and positional tolerancing, selecting and computing tolerances, classes of fits, methods of inspection and use of ANSI Standards. Lecture two hours, laboratory three hours per week. NOTE: EGR 111 is equivalent to CAD 104
Students will analyze one, two, and three dimensional resultant force systems in equilibrium using algebraic and graphical techniques. Students will discuss trusses, frames, centroids, friction, and work. Lecture three hours per week. This course applies to one or more IAI majors. See an Academic Advisor for details. Prerequisite: Credit or registration in PHY 105 and MAT 201.
Students will analyze the kinematics and dynamics of particles and rigid bodies. Applications include Newton’s laws of motion, the principles of work, energy, and momentum. Lecture three hours per week. This course applies to one or more IAI majors. See an Academic Advisor for details. Prerequisite: EGR 120 and MAT 201.
