DFTG 1101: CAD Fundamentals
This course establishes safety practices as they relate to a drafting environment. It introduces basic CAD functions while presenting essential principles and practices for line relationships, scale and geometric construction.
ENGL 1101: Composition and Rhetoric- (meets graduation requirements for 10th OR 12h grade Literature)
Explores the analysis of literature and articles about issues in the humanities and in society. Students practice various modes of writing, ranging from exposition to argumentation and persuasion. The course includes a review of standard grammatical and stylistic usage in proofreading and editing. An introduction to library resources lays the foundation for research. Topics include writing analysis and practice, revision and research. Students write a research paper using library resources and using a formatting and documentation style appropriate to the purpose and audience.
ENGT 1000: Introduction to Engineering Technology
This course provides a study of engineering technology as a career field and describes the knowledge and skills required for academic and occupational success. Topics include careers in engineering technology, measurements and standards, mathematical operators, engineering tools and engineering concepts. Laboratory work reinforces mathematical, mechanical and electrical concepts through practical exercises, including the measurement and calculation of the density of objects, relative humidity, digital multimeters usage, circuit construction, precision instruments usage and team exercises.
MATH 1101: Mathematical Modeling
This course emphasizes functions using real-world applications as models. Topics include the fundamental concepts of algebra; functions and graphs; linear, quadratic, polynomial, exponential, and logarithmic functions and models; systems of equations; and optional topics in algebra.
MATH 1113: Pre-Calculus – Prerequisite: MATH 1101 or equivalent- (awards high school pre-calculus credit)
This course prepares students for calculus. The topics discussed include an intensive study of polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions and their graphs. Applications include simple maximum and minimum problems, as well as exponential growth and decay.
