Prerequisites: and Junior standing. Designed to teach students currently available approaches that incorporate renewable energy and sustainable development concepts in civil engineering projects. This will include various methods of planning, design, and evaluation which promote increased energy efficiency and sustainable use of materials. Cost estimating and life cycle planning will also be included. The course will encourage students to look beyond the information in the course, to come up with additional methodologies which may not currently be in use.
Prerequisite: . Code and specification aspects of engineered construction. Topics include professional ethics, contracts, specifications, bidding procedures, building codes such as B.O.C.A. and New Jersey Uniform Construction Code, Energy Code Provisions, construction safety, and the impact of the EPA on construction.
Prerequisites: , . A course for industrial and mechanical engineering students in which the equilibrium of particles and rigid bodies subject to concentrated and distributed forces is studied.
Prerequisites: , . A study of the physical properties of the various commerical thermosetting and thermoplastic resins. An introduction to linear viscoelastic theory and its relationship to measurable mechanical properties of plastics. Also, engineering properties such as flammability, chemical resistance, and electrical properties.
Prerequisites: . This course covers various topics in Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE). The course provides an in-depth understanding and skill of constructing 2-D drawings using well-known commercial CAD package, and integrating 3-D solid modeling techniques into simulation, and analysis animation of new designs using commercial CAD/CAE software. The students will have hands-on experience to analyze Structure, Heat Transfer, and Computational Fluid Dynamics problems by using several different software packages. The course also focuses on CAD Product Data Exchange using both Direct Database conversion and International Standards based conversion methods between major CAD/CAE systems. Typical industrial applications will be illustrated.

Applications for the sensing of such variables as pressure, tem-perature, mass flow, and displacement. Particular attention to the applicability and sensitivity of instruments.
Prerequisite: . For industrial engineering majors. Topics include kinematics of mechanisms, machine components, and a brief intro-duction to mechanical vibrations. Students gain the ability to deal with design problems from the viewpoint of a non-specialist.
Prerequisites: , , . Problems related to mechanical design. Topics include two-dimensional elasticity, transformation of stress and strain, plane stress problems, axisymmetric members, buckling criteria, and failure theories.
Prerequisites: , . Introduction to the basic principles of conservation of mass, momentum, and energy as they apply to engineering systems which utilize fluids. Some of the topics are dimensional analysis, theoretical and empirical analysis of one-dimensional compressible and incompressible flow, empirical analysis of external and internal flows, and elementary boundary layer theory.
Prerequisites: , . Design, selection, and evaluation of mechanisms for various applications. Topics include displacement, velocity, and acceleration analysis of planar linkages, synthesis of function generators and motion generators, design of cams, gear-tooth geometry and analysis of gear trains.
Restriction: junior or senior standing. An introduction for engineering majors to the fundamentals of engineering economics and the management process for engineering and development. Major topics include capital investment justification methods, project organization, scheduling and control techniques, legal, quality, and staffing issues.
Prerequisites: , , , . Lectures and projects covering problem solving methodology in the design, analysis, and synthesis of mechanical and thermal systems. The student's academic background combines with engineering principles and topics to serve as a foundation for broad engineering projects.
