Required Courses

ECS 101 – Introduction to Engineering and Computer Science(3 credits) Engineering and Computer Science gateway course. Topics include discussion of each discipline within the college, technical communication, presentation of technical results, professional behavior, ethics, computers and software packages, problem solving and modeling, data analysis. Major-specific sections.

CIS 151 – Principles and practice of programming (3 credits) Computing fundamentals: variables, types, scope, objects, classes, functions, parameter passing, input/output, conditionals, and iteration. Defensive programming techniques, including exceptions. Program testing and debugging. Includes programming laboratory. Only for Computer Science, Computer Engineering and Electrical Engineering students.

ECS 114/115 – Academic Excellence Workshop for Calculus courses (1 credit) Designed to supplement the theory taught in Pre-calculus – calculus III courses. Problems Will incorporate course work.  The computational component is designed to reinforce the understanding of concepts through a series of repetitive exercises.

CHE 106/107 – General Chemistry Lecture (with Lab) (4 credits) Fundamental principles and laws underlying chemical action, states of matter, atomic and molecular structure, chemical bonding, stoichiometry, properties of solutions, chemical equilibrium, and introductory thermodynamics.  Descriptive chemistry in relation to theoretical principles. (All Engineering majors)
