Students should consult a counselor or for lower division major requirements for most California public universities. (See the Standard Definitions section of the catalog for a description of ASSIST.) Students transferring to an independent college/university should consult the catalog of the individual school and a counselor for lower division major requirements. Other specializations include: Construction, Manufacturing, and Quality Assurance.


ENGT 205 C  Advanced Engineering Autocad

ENGT 299 C  Engr Technology Ind Study

Engineering Technology (ENGT) ENGT 101 C  Technical Drawing

3 Units

Prerequisite: MATH 010 C, or equivalent high school mathematics, with a grade of “C” or better. Term hours: 32–36 lecture and 64–72 laboratory. Principles of graphical drawing for students who have no background in this subject area are studied. This course covers the proper use of drawing instruments, lettering, sketching, multiview (orthographic projections), geometric constructions, isometrics and pictorials, sections, auxiliary views, base line dimensioning with tolerances, weight calculations, notes and bill materials composition. (CSU)

ENGT 104 C  Computer Aided Design

3 Units

Prerequisite: ENGT 101 C, or employed in the field. Term hours: 32–36 lecture and 64–72 laboratory. This is an introduction to Computer Aided Design using AutoCAD systems and techniques with emphasis on using a menu driven software package for creating drawing data files of schematics, multiview (orthographic projections), sections, isometrics, baseline dimensioning with tolerances, notes, and bill of materials. The course is designed to prepare the student for industry, technology, or engineering uses of the AutoCAD system. $4.00 Material Fee — Payable at Registration. (CSU)

ENGT 110 C  Introduction to Engineering

2 Units

ENGT 140 C  AC and DC Circuits I

4 Units

Same as ENGR 110 C. Prerequisite: MATH 040 C. Term hours: 48–54 lecture. This course is an introduction to engineering as a professions and its associated career responsibilities and opportunities. The course includes a selection of computational and mathematical methods and tools to be found useful in problem solving. Dimensional analysis, graphical techniques, and design theory in engineering analysis is also studied. The course includes the application of engineering and scientific problem methods to introductory mechanics and electricity. This course also meets requirements for credit in Engineering major. Pass/No Pass/ Letter Grade Option. (UC/‌CSU) Prerequisite: MATH 040 C may be taken concurrently. Term hours: 48–54 lecture and 48–54 laboratory. This is an introductory course in AC and DC circuits, with emphasis on the measurement of electrical quantities using equipment such as the voltmeter, ammeter, ohmmeter, capacitor-checker, oscilloscope, impedance bridge, potentiometer, and wattmeter. Also introduced are some basic electronic circuits using solid-state devices and the use of the transistor tester. This course is designed for those wishing to continue beyond ELEC 051 C or as the first course in an electronic engineering technology program. It is also a required course for all engineering technology students. Credit by Examination. Pass/ No Pass/Letter Grade Option. (CSU)

3 Units

Prerequisite: ENGT 104 C and ENGR 102 C. Term hours: 32–36 lecture and 64–72 laboratory. This is an advanced course of Computer Aided Design CAD (AutoCAD 2000) systems that emphasize the use of surfaces, surfaces of revolution, solids (primitives) and extrusions techniques to create 3D working drawings. To convert 3D drawings by layout methods to 2D drawings that emphasize baseline dimensioning with tolerances, notes, weights and bill of materials. To write unique graphical programs by using LISP. May be taken for credit 2 times. $4.00 Material Fee — Payable at Registration. (CSU)

.5 to 2 Units

Prerequisite: Approved Independent Study Learning Contract. Term hours: Hours and topics by arrangement with instructor. This course is for able students who wish to extend their knowledge of a particular area of engineering technology (electronics, mechanics, etc.) through individual research, study and laboratory work. Students may select their own topics or be assigned a project to work on under supervision. May be taken for credit 4 times. (CSU)
