|CLASS CODE:||ENGRT 110||CREDITS: 3|
|DIVISION:||PHYSICAL SCIENCE & ENGINEERING|
|DEPARTMENT:||MECHANICAL ENGINEERING & TECHNOLOGY|
|GENERAL EDUCATION:||This course does not fulfill a General Education requirement.|
|DESCRIPTION:||A course in joining processes that includes welding, standard fasteners (nuts,bolts), non-standard fasteners (inserts, blind fasteners), adhesives, foam tapes and epoxies and other processes.|
|CONTENT AND TOPICS:||General Goals: Give the student a strong understanding of the importance of using strong engineering principles and practices in specifying fasteners and joining processes. Topics include: welding processes, fasteners, adhesives, foam tapes, and allied processes.|
|GOALS AND OBJECTIVES:||The student will:
1. Understand the importance of using strong engineering principles and practices in specifying fasteners and joining processes.
2. Identify common screw and nut types; thread call out, strengths, mechanical properties and applications.
3. Identify common non-traditional fasteners (inserts, self-clinching, blind), and identify common applications, testing, and installation.
4. Identify common welding processes and specify a process for a specific need using correct parameters.
4. List the attributes of adhesives and foam tapes, and identify uses for these materials.
|REQUIREMENTS:||A. Assigned Reading:
B. Tests and Quizzes:
1. WRITTEN: Tests and quizzes will be given covering reading, lecture/discussion, and lab assignments, and will consist of problem-solving, essay, and multiple choice questions.
2. SKILLS TESTS: Skills tests will consist of problem-solving exercises taken from daily lab assignments.
|OTHER:||Required materials: gloves, pliers, tip cleaner, safety glasses, work clothes, ear plugs, notebook, and leather boots. (Students must wear safety glasses at all times while in lab sessions.)|
