Basic Skills and Foundations
All Basic Skills of advanced math and science form a Foundation for a successful engineering curriculum. Through the introduction and development of the basic skills in the first and second-year core curriculum engineering courses, the students will improve their problem solving, communication, and interpersonal skills. These courses include ENGR111/112, Calculus, Physics, Statistics and Chemistry and explore foundational topics such as
- Significant Figures and Error
- Data and Graphical Analysis
They are applicable to all engineering disciplines and create a strong basis for analytical and problem solving skills.
To explore more about these important basic skills, click the Units, Significant Figures/Error, Statistics, Estimation, and Data/Graphical Analysis boxes above.
The foundation for successful engineering practice is a strong basis in Math and Science. Everything else builds upon this foundation.
