ENGS 1000 Introduction to Engineering (TAG) 2 Credits

Prerequisite: MATH 1001 or MATH 1180 (can be taken concurrently) or MATH 1650 (can be taken concurrently).

This course introduces students to the various career options that are available in the engineering and engineering technology fields. It also instructs students in various methods that can be used for solving complex engineering problems, including the interpretation and presentation of data. It introduces students to many basic pieces of equipment that they will use in future laboratory experiments. Finally, it discusses many of the ethical dilemmas that engineers face during their careers in the workplace.
