Part of Engineering and Technology

School of Engineering

Engineering is the application of scientific and technical knowledge to solve human problems. Engineers use imagination, judgment and reasoning to apply science, technology, mathematics, and practical experience. The result is the design, production, and operation of useful objects or processes.

A school is a large organizational structure which can contain various departments and divisions. The departments and divisions should be listed in the departments and divisions section. The school should not contain any learning resources. The school can contain projects for developing learning resources.

For specific questions, why not consult the Engineering Help Desk? We also have an engineering specific discussion portal to help get those technical details straight or just enjoy shooting the breeze with other technically interested people.


Divisions and Departments

Divisions and Departments of the School exist on pages in "topic" namespace. Start the name of departments with the "Topic:" prefix; departments reside in the Topic: namespace. Departments and divisions link to learning materials and learning projects. Divisions can link subdivisions or to departments. For more information on schools, divisions and departments look at the Naming Conventions.

To add additional Divisions or Departments within the School of Engineering, edit the list of "Topic:" namespaces on the Engineering Template.

The list of Engineering Departments below has been restructured under popularly established major engineering branches and the new "Tree" categorization system has been implemented. Please edit all Engineering pages to reflect these changes.

Learning Resources

Pre-Engineering Curriculum

An education in Engineering is built upon a foundation of mathematics and sciences. Every engineering discipline shares these fundamental studies at its core and every engineering student should be proficient in them:

  • Mathematics
  1. Primary and Secondary Mathematics
  2. Calculus
  3. Linear Algebra
  4. Differential Equations
  • Physical Science
  1. Basic Biology (for some disciplines)
  2. Basic Chemistry
  3. Basic and Levels 1 & 2 Physics

The Engineering Curriculum

The education of an engineering student must encompass the studies prescribed by the chosen discipline of study, yet will additionally require study of topics related to all disciplines and required in nearly every engineering field:

  • General Engineering
  1. Introduction to Technical Writing
  2. Introduction to Computer Science
  3. Computer Aided Design
  • Intermediate Engineering
  1. Intermediate engineering analysis

Research projects/Questions

  • Unmanned aerial systems
  • If you read news sites like there are many stories of breakthrough technologies. It seems however, that these breakthrough technologies just don't appear on the market or take several years to do so. Why do these technologies take so long to appear? Why do these technologies sometimes not appear? Do these news sites hype the story to present an unrealistic picture of the technology or is there some obstacle that prevents these technologies from appearing on the market? What could be done to increase the speed at which these technologies enter the market?
