COURSE


Applied Mechanics 1

Code:
ENGI

16764

Hours / wk: 4

This is a first course in applied mechanics, suitable for entrants to all branches of the technologist
program. The course is designed to give the student a sound
understanding of how forces act, and
how they may be used in modern technology. It covers such concepts as components of a force;
resultant of a number of forces; coplanar forces in equilibrium; inertia; friction; kinematics; Newton's
Laws; energy, work an
d power; momentum. Applied Mechanics is composed of two principal areas
-

statics and dynamics: "statics" is the study of forces on and in structures, i.e., those in static or
motionless equilibrium; whereas "dynamics" is concerned with dynamic equilibrium
, or the forces
acting on a moving body. Applied Mechanics, since it deals with the very basic concept of force, is the
origin for all calculations in areas such as stress analysis, machine design, hydraulics and structural
design.


COURSE


Health, Work
and Safety

Code: HEAL 27485

Hours / wk: 3

This course will introduce students to the fundamental principles of health and safety in the work place.

Technology: Apocalypse or Eden?

Code:
SCIE 16048

Hours / wk: 3

This course provides
opportunities for students to evaluate the effects of technology and the use of
technology in society, as well as on the individual through an analysis of competing visions of
technology. Through interactive lectures, online exercises, classroom assignment
s, and online and
classroom participation, the course will provide opportunities for written analysis of the work of Jacques
Ellul, as well as to the history of humanism and modern institutions such as the corporation, science
lab and political bureaucracy
. Interdisciplinary concepts, such as technique, humanism, 'creative
destruction', and Disnification, will provide the analytic basis of scholarly investigation in order to avoid
the problem of personal speculation. Clear explanation of historical trends,
from the Classical Age to
the Modern Age, and from the Physical Economy to the Knowledge Economy, will put the concepts in
context. The course will pose the question of whether the modern corporation is a technological
oppressor or a humanist wealth provid
er, and whether individuals themselves are technicians or
humanists.


COURSE


Applied Mathematics

Code: MATH 13406

Hours / wk: 3

Students study concepts and operations of exponents, logarithms, trigonometric functions, inequalities,
systems of
non
-
linear equations, solution of higher order equations and plane analytic geometry.
Emphasis is placed on students applying these mathematical concepts and skills to solve technical
and physical problems numerically and graphically as well as algebraical
ly. Students are expected to
use direct entry scientific calculators proficiently. Graphing, solver and algebraic software tools are
used to aid students in their application of mathematics skills to solve word problems. The students'
concepts and skills,
learned in this course, are reinforced in a project appropriate for a technician or
technologist.


COURSE


Applied Mechanics 2

Code:
ENGI 13386

Hours / wk: 4

The course is designed for students who have elected to proceed in the Mechanical Engineering
Technology Program clusters and starts where the general course Applied Mechanics finishes. It goes
into structures and much greater detail with forces on bodies in motion and introduces rotational
dynamics, work/energy principals and momentum concepts. Ap
plied Mechanics since it deals with the
very basic concept of force is the origin for all the calculations in areas such as stress analysis,
machine design, hydraulics and structural design.

ENGI 10679

Hours / wk: 3

The materials used in modern civilization are very complex and of great variety. Their properties and
possible uses
are widely varied. These properties and uses, in many cases, depend to a great extent
on the prior treatment given to the material and on the environment in which they are used. The
technician and technologist need to have a good understanding of materials

and how they respond to
the environment in which they are used. He/she must realize that materials respond to definite laws of
nature. More and more, the technician and technologist is required to make decisions on materials,
many of them new and differen
t from those used in the past. It is essential that he/she be able to
evaluate these by analysis of data supplied by the suppliers.
