Students Work on EF 152 Project

Engineering Fundamentals 152

Physics for Engineers II

4 Credit Hours

Catalog Description: Calculus-based study of basic physics concepts, including rotational dynamics, statics, oscillations, waves, fluids, heat and temperature, and the first and second law of thermodynamics. Introduction to teamwork. Introduction to the engineering disciplines, examination of engineering principles and design issues. Oral and written presentation skills.

EF 152 builds on the principles learned in EF 151.  The format is similar with student teams of 3-4 students participating in hands-on activities and working on engineering projects.  EF 152 will introduce you to a broad base of engineering topics such as the Doppler effect, why roofs come off buildings in hurricanes, how a guitar string works, how a car engine works, and how to use a microcontroller.
