EAS 202, a follow-on to EAS 140, is a one credit freshman seminar course aimed at broadening students' vision of engineering problem solving, and elucidating how engineers can make a difference in meeting key societal needs. The course focus is the National Academy of Engineering's 'Grand Challenges' for the future. It includes a series of interactive presentations by engineering faculty who are experts in these areas, offering an understanding both of these problems and engineering approaches to solving them. Students also explore a self-selected area of personal interest as a step toward identifying possible niches for their own career path. EAS 140 is a required pre-requisite.

Semester(s): Fall, Spring
Pre-requisite: MTH 241
Approved Engineering Majors Only
Type: LR
Grading: Graded (A-F)
Introduces probability and its application to engineering problems. Examines sample space, random variables, expected values, limiting theorems, error analysis, and provides introduction to random processes. Students may not receive credit for this course and CIE 308.

EAS 396 Engineering Career Institute

Credits: 1
Semester(s): Spring
Pre-requisite: Sophomore standing in engineering.
Approved Engineering Majors Only
Type: LEC
Grading: Pass/Fail
Provides one academic credit for pre-employment classes with instruction on how to conduct a successful student employment job search. The semester culminates with one week [30 hours] of presentations from industrial managers on essential career-success subjects such as leadership, communication, teamwork, total quality management, and value engineering. This course enables students to obtain engineering credit-worthy employment along with the business success skills needed to be effective on the job. Subsequent to this course, students with jobs will enroll in EAS 496, Engineering Co-op.

EAS 495 Supervised Undergraduate Teaching

Credits: 3
Semester(s): (No information on typically offered semesters)
Pre-requisite: Junior status, 3.0 QPA; A- or better in course in which the student will assist; and permission of instructor.
Type: DIS
Grading: Graded (A-F)
The content of this course is variable and therefore it is repeatable for credit. The University Grade Repeat Policy does not apply.
Enrollees participate as undergraduate teaching assistants under the supervision of faculty of the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.

EAS 496 Engineering Co-Op

Credits: 1 - 3
Semester(s): Fall, Spring, Summer
Pre-requisite: Senior standing
Approved Engineering Majors Only
Type: TUT
Grading: Graded (A-F)
The content of this course is variable and therefore it is repeatable for credit. The University Grade Repeat Policy does not apply.
Up to three work periods of engineering-related employment. Co-op students are employed in technical assignments in industry, with emphasis on practical application of engineering coursework. Students are registered for 1-3 credit hours, but are afforded full-time status at the University. This protects the student's insurance, loan and possible INS status. The course goal is to provide valuable experience for students, while making positive contributions to employers. A faculty instructor supervises the academic component of the experience, usually a report and/or presentation.

Type: TUT
Grading: Graded (A-F)
The content of this course is variable and therefore it is repeatable for credit. The University Grade Repeat Policy does not apply.
Students collaborate with faculty research mentors on an ongoing faculty research project or conduct independent research under the guidance of a faculty member. This experience provides students with an inquiry-based learning opportunity and engages them as active learners in a research setting.

EAS 499 Independent Study

Credits: 1 - 12
Semester(s): (No information on typically offered semesters)
Pre-requisite: Permission of instructor.
Type: TUT
Grading: Graded (A-F)
The content of this course is variable and therefore it is repeatable for credit. The University Grade Repeat Policy does not apply.
