Engineering (EGR) Course Descriptions

EGR 5023  Numerical Techniques in Engineering Analysis
(3-0) 3 hours credit. Prerequisite: Graduate standing in engineering or consent of instructor.
Advanced methods of applied mathematics, including numerical linear algebra, initial value problems, stability, convergence, partial differential equations, and optimization.

EGR 5093  Special Topics in Engineering Analysis
(3-0) 3 hours credit. Prerequisite: Graduate standing in engineering or consent of instructor.
A comprehensive treatment of advanced methods of applied mathematics needed for the study of advanced courses in engineering. May be repeated for credit as topics vary.

EGR 5113  Advanced Engineering Economic Analysis
(3-0) 3 hours credit. Prerequisite: Graduate standing in engineering.
Examination of the factors required to transform technological innovations into products. Elements of business planning are examined through a case-study approach.

EGR 5213  Topics in Systems Modeling
(3-0) 3 hours credit. Prerequisite: Graduate standing in engineering.
Systems analysis approach to formulating and solving engineering problems. Topics include operational research, mathematical modeling, optimization, linear and dynamic programming, decision analysis, and statistical quality control.
Topic 1: Applied Operations Research. Application of operations research methods to practical engineering problems.
Topic 2: Engineering Systems Modeling. Modeling of modern engineering systems for operational and management control.
May be repeated for credit as topics vary.

EGR 5233  Advanced Quality Control
(3-0) 3 hours credit. Prerequisite: Graduate standing in engineering or consent of instructor.
Methods and techniques for process control, process and gage capabilities, inspection plans, American National Standard, and recent advanced techniques. Tour of manufacturing industry. Case studies in process control, outgoing quality, and costs. A project, assigned by a manufacturing company, is required, along with a final presentation of the project.

EGR 5613  New and Emerging Technologies
(3-0) 3 hours credit.
Examines entrepreneurial and managerial perspectives on the process of technology innovation. Design is the organizing concept used to study the continuum from idea to sale of products and services that are spawned by innovators using new and emerging technologies. Seminar format, case-study preparation, presentation, and cooperative learning are defining characteristics of this course.

EGR 5623  Issues in Engineering Management
(3-0) 3 hours credit.
Examines issues facing managers of technology in terms of their implications for people. The context is the cycle from conception to use/disposal of products and services. The framework for analysis and synthesis is ecological, historical, and institutional. Seminar format, issue paper preparation and presentation, and cooperative learning are defining characteristics of this course.

EGR 5633  Technological Foundations of Management of Technology
(3-0) 3 hours credit.
This course examines the activities used to transform viable products and processes. Project planning and management, incorporating fundamentals of engineering economic analysis, are examined via case analysis. Explicit consideration is given to “green design” within a systems context. Design is used as the rubric to integrate the activities. (Credit cannot be earned for both EGR 5633 and MOT 5023.)

EGR 6013  Analytic Techniques in Engineering Analysis
(3-0) 3 hours credit. Prerequisite: Graduate standing in engineering or consent of instructor.
Advanced methods of applied mathematics, including linear algebra, vector differential calculus, integral theorems, differential equations, and calculus of variations.
