Integrated STEAM Engineering Education Courses
EGED 531 Engineering Design - core course
TEGR 528 (EDUC 327) Engineering in the P-12 Classroom - core course
EGED 614 Manufacturing Engineering in the Classroom - elective
EGED 530 (ENGR 130) Fundamentals of Engineering - core class
(3 graduate credits) [Online] Dive into the engineering disciplines with experiences and curriculum in electronics, machine design, manufacturing engineering, computer programming, thermodynamics, statics, fluids and mechanics of materials. Engaging engineering professors relate the content to the classroom and curriculum. Contact Dr. Deb Besser at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Future Summer Offerings
EGED 612 Digital Electronics and Computing Systems - elective
EGED 613 Materials Science and Engineering - elective
EGED 615 Statics, Materials and Structures - elective
(3 graduate credits) [Blended online and in person] Introduction to statics, strength of materials, and structures. Topics include Newton’s Laws, equilibrium equations, analysis of determinate systems, load tracing, stress, strain, deformation, cross-sectional properties, shear and bending moments, axial member analysis and structural systems behavior. Each unit includes historic and critical issue connections. Emphasis is placed on how the material is used in the built environment and is relevant to P-12 education settings. Contact course instructor, Dr. Katherine Acton at email@example.com, with any questions.
EGED 611 Fundamentals of Electricity and Electronics - elective
(3 graduate credits) [Blended online and in person] An introduction to electricity, intended to help those who would like to better understand, use, and teach basic electrical concepts and tools. Topics will include: Physical principles of energy in electrical form (voltage, current, resistance, power), key laws of circuit theory (Ohm's law, Kirchoff's laws, conservation of power), common electronic components (sources/batteries, resistors, capacitors, diodes, LEDs, etc.), basic circuit design and analysis, circuit prototyping and construction (breadboards, soldering, etc.), typical lab tools (hand tools, multimeter, oscilloscope, function generator, etc.) and a brief introduction to concepts of digital electronics. This course offers a mix of theory and hands-on learning, as well as an exploration of techniques, tools, and resources for teaching electrical concepts. Contact course instructor, Prof. Andrew Tubesing at firstname.lastname@example.org, with any questions.
