Many SMC classes require the use of a computer with Internet access to reach class resources and/or to complete assignments and/or take exams. To locate a computer lab on campus go to www.smc.edu/acadcomp and click on the “Labs” link.


ENGR 1, Introduction to Engineering 3 units

Transfer: UC, CSU Prerequisite: None.

This course is an introduction to the methods and tools of engineering problem solving and design, including the interface of the engineer with society and engineering ethics. While addressing the branches of engineering, the functions of an engineer, and the industries in which engineers work, this course examines the engineering education pathways and explores effective academic strategies. Communication skills pertinent to the engineering profession are also addressed.

ENGR 11, Engineering Graphics and Design 3 units

Transfer: UC, CSU Prerequisite: Math 2.

This course covers the principles of engineering drawings to visually communicate engineering designs. The course also serves as an introduction to computer-aided design (CAD). Topics include the development of visualization skills, orthographic projections, dimensioning and tolerancing practices, and an introduction to the engineering design process. Sketching, engineering drawings, and 3D CAD solid modeling skills are developed. The use of CAD software is an integral part of the course.

ENGR 12, Statics 3 units

Transfer: UC, CSU Prerequisite: Physics 21 and Math 7.

This course covers basic principles of static equilibrium in two and three dimensions utilizing vector analysis and Newton’s laws. Various structures are considered which include trusses, frames, machines, and beams.

ENGR 21, Circuit Analysis 3 units

Transfer: UC, CSU Prerequisite: Physics 22; Prerequisite/Corequisite: Math 15 (Math 15 can be taken concurrently with Engineering 21).

This course serves as an introduction to the analysis of electrical circuits through the use of analytical techniques based on the application of circuit laws and network theorems. The course covers DC and AC circuits containing resistors, capacitors, inductors, dependent sources, operational amplifiers, and/or switches. The analysis of these circuits include natural and forced responses of first and second order RLC circuits, the use of phasors, AC power calculations, power transfer, and energy concepts.

2253 4:00p-5:20p TTh SCI 101 Dang T T

ENGR 22, Circuit Analysis Lab 1 unit

Transfer: UC, CSU Prerequisite/Corequisite: Engineering 21.

This course serves as an introduction to the construction, measurement, and design of elementary electrical circuits and basic operational amplifier circuits. Students gain familiarity with the basic use of electrical test and measurement instruments, including multimeters, oscilloscopes, power supplies, and function generators. Using principles of circuit analysis for DC, transient, and sinusoidal steady-state (AC) conditions, students develop data interpretation skills by using circuit simulation software and by direct measurements of circuits. Practical considerations such as component value tolerance and non-ideal aspects of laboratory instruments are also introduced.
