MT-140: Engineering Analysis
Course, prefix, number, & title: MT-140 Engineering Analysis
Hours (Class, recitation, Laboratory, studio): 3 laboratory hours
Co-requisites (if any): PH-201
Course Description in college catalog:
An introduction to general problem-solving methodology for the beginning engineering and technology student. The focus is on how to solve any kind of engineering analytical problem in a logical and systematic way. Starting from mathematical fundamentals, students are introduced to the analysis of problems from such fields as statics, strength of materials, electrical circuits, fluid mechanics and thermodynamics.

Academic Integrity policy (department or College):
Academic honesty is expected of all students. Any violation of academic integrity is taken extremely seriously. All assignments and projects must be the original work of the student or teammates. Plagiarism will not be tolerated. Any questions regarding academic integrity should be brought to the attention of the instructor. The following is the Queensborough Community College Policy on Academic Integrity: "It is the official policy of the College that all acts or attempted acts that are violations of Academic Integrity be reported to the Office of Student Affairs. At the faculty member's discretion and with the concurrence of the student or students involved, some cases though reported to the Office of Student Affairs may be resolved within the confines of the course and department. The instructor has the authority to adjust the offender's grade as deemed appropriate, including assigning an F to the assignment or exercise or, in more serious cases, an F to the student for the entire course."
