Course Description:
This course provides an introduction to drafting and instruction on the use of a programmable
scientific calculator to work applied math problems.
The major focus of the POE survey course of engineering exposes students to major concepts they’ll
encounter in a postsecondary engineering course of study. Students employ engineering and scientific
concepts in the solution of engineering design problems. They develop problem-solving skills and
apply their knowledge of research and design to create solutions to various challenges, documenting
their work and communicating solutions to peers and members of the professional community.
Criteria for student selection:
To be successful in this class, a student should be a high school junior or senior with an interest in
entering the Architectural, Civil Engineering, Surveying or Construction Management fields, and they
should be enrolled in, or have taken an algebra course.

The Civil Engineering Technology
Curriculum
The Civil Engineering Technology Curriculum provides the application of
relevant theory of engineering needed by technicians to carry out planning and
supervisory tasks in the construction of transportation systems, residential and
commercial buildings, bridges, dams, and water and wastewater treatment
systems.
Course work includes the communication and computational skills required to
support the fields such as materials testing, structures, estimating, project
management, hydraulics, environmental technology, and surveying.
Additional course work will cover the operation of computers and application
software including CAD (computer-aided drafting).
Graduates should quality for technician-level jobs with both public and private
engineering, construction, and surveying agencies.
Because the use of computers is integral to this curriculum,
some courses are delivered in an online format.
Introduction to Engineering
EGR 150/IED
SCC EGR 150 Introduction to Engineering / Project Lead the Way Introduction to
Engineering Design (IED) 2 Credit Hours
EGR 150 H02 - MWF 9:15-10:05
Course description: This course is an overview of the engineering profession. Topics include
goal setting and career assessment, ethics, public safety, the engineering method and design
process, written and oral communication, interpersonal skills and team building, and
computer applications.
Upon completion, students should be able to understand the engineering process, the
engineering profession, and utilize college resources to meet their educational goals. This
course has been approved for transfer under the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement as a
premajor and/or elective course requirement .
The major focus of the IED course is to expose students to the design process, research and
analysis, teamwork, communication methods, global and human impacts, engineering
standards and technical documentation. Students use 3D solid modeling design software to
help them design solutions to solve proposed problems and learn how to document their
work and communicate solutions to peers and members of the professional community.
Introduction to Engineering
EGR 150/IED
SCC EGR 150 Introduction to Engineering / Project Lead the Way Introduction to
Engineering Design (IED)
Criteria for Student Selection:
EGR 150, Intro to Engineering, is a college-transfer class guaranteed to be accepted by any of
the four UNC engineering schools as meeting their "Introduction to Engineering"
requirement for freshmen and sophomores.
To be successful in this class, a student should be a high school junior or senior and have
excellent math skills at least at the pre-calculus algebra level. They should have a real
interest in pursuing an engineering degree at the university level, which means that they will
be expected to complete calculus I, II, and calculus-based physics by the end of their college
sophomore year. They should have the capability of working alone and in small groups on
engineering projects which will require independent thought and action as well as the ability
to construct working engineering models, such as model bridges or vehicles.

An engineering technology (ET) graduate is an implementer.
 Emphasis of curriculum is on applying current knowledge and practices to
the solution of specific technical problems and standard design problems
New graduates would most likely enter industry in construction, product
design, development, testing, technical operations, or technical services and
sales.
 Graduates often pursue graduate study in engineering management,
construction management, business administration, or similar programs.
Graduates are eligible for professional registration in most states with wide
variation in licensing requirements.
More likely to get a ‘hands-on’ laboratory, testing, construction, or in-thefield job.
Coursework includes algebra, trigonometry, applied calculus and college
level sciences; level of math is not as in-depth as engineering programs while
