Engineering Technology (ENGT)

Courses numbered 500 to 799 = undergraduate/graduate. (Individual courses may be limited to undergraduate students only.); 800 to 999 = graduate.

ENGT 501.  Cyber Operations   4 credit hours

Covers concepts related to cyber attack, penetration testing, cyber intelligence, reverse engineering, and cryptanalysis. Students learn how security infrastructure integrates with the rest of the business and IT infrastructure through the use of hands-on projects. Prerequisite: MIS 310 with a C- or better grade, or instructor's consent.

ENGT 510.  Solar and Wind Engineering   3 credit hours

2 Classroom hours; 2 Lab hours. Covers types of solar generation, solar radiation, sun path charts, shading effect, sizing of solar panels, inverters, batteries, V-1 curves for solar panels, grid connected and off-grid solar system, types of batteries, NEC codes for solar systems, economic analysis of PV system, carbon footprint, wind power generation, advantages and disadvantages of wind power, comparison between the wind energy and solar energy, wind energy system economics and environmental aspects and impacts. Prerequisite: ENGT 320 or EE 282.

ENGT 590.  Independent Study in Engineering Technology   1-3 credit hours

Arranged individual independent study in specialized areas of engineering technology under the supervision of a faculty member. Repeatable for credit. Prerequisite: consent of the supervising faculty member.

ENGT 600.  Water and Wastewater Treatment   3 credit hours

Studies water quality constituents and introduces the design and operation of water and wastewater treatment processes. Prerequisites: ENGT 323, ENGT 370; or departmental consent.

ENGT 601.  Digital Forensics   3 credit hours

Covers concepts related to hardware and software forensics, incident response, cyber crime, and cyber law enforcement. Students learn different aspects of computer and cyber crime and ways in which to uncover, protect, exploit, and document digital evidence. Students are exposed to different types of tools (both software and hardware), techniques and procedure, and are able to use them to perform rudimentary forensic investigations. Focuses on the entire lifecycle of incident response, including preparation, data collection, data analysis, and remediation. Case studies reveal the methods behind and remediation strategies for today's most insidious attacks. Prerequisite: ENGT 501 with a C- or better grade, or instructor's consent.

ENGT 602.  Cyber Physical Systems   4 credit hours

Focuses on the methodology to conduct cyber security risk assessments for critical cyber and cyber-physical systems. Students learn risk assessment methodology techniques to: identify, classify, and analyze cyber threats and vulnerabilities in cyber and cyber-physical systems, conduct criticality and impact analysis, and create risk mitigation plans. Also, students learn how to design cyber-infrastructures to securely capture, process and manage cyber security data obtained from embedded systems deployed in industrial infrastructures, SCADA networks and control systems. Prerequisite: ENGT 501 with a C- or better grade, or instructor's consent.

ENGT 610.  Hydraulics and Hydrology   3 credit hours

Studies water resources engineering topics and methods. Hydraulic and hydrological concepts are explored through the application of fundamental conservation laws and ecologically-based design theory. Students apply the concept of fluid mechanics to pipe networks, hydraulic machinery, and open channel flow, flow control devices, flood routing, groundwater flow and management, and develop quantitative approaches for answering questions in engineering hydrology. Prerequisite: ENGT 323 or departmental consent.

ENGT 611.  Cyber Risk Management   3 credit hours

Covers concepts related to cyber resilience, mission assurance, disaster recovery, business continuity, security evaluation, and cyber economics. Prerequisites: ENGT 601 with a C- or better grade, or instructor's consent.

ENGT 612.  Secure Web Development   3 credit hours

Covers concepts related to the development of secure web-based systems, security mitigation strategies and secure coding, penetration testing, and security in systems using advanced web technologies. Prerequisite: ENGT 601 with a C- or better grade, or instructor's consent.

ENGT 620.  Structural Analysis and Design   3 credit hours

Studies the functions of structure, design loads, reactions and force systems; analysis of statically determinate structures including beams trusses and arches; energy methods of determining deflections of structures; influence lines and criteria for moving loads; analysis of statically indeterminate structures including continuous beams and frames. Prerequisite: ENGT 334 or departmental consent.

ENGT 664.  Engineering Project Management   3 credit hours

Cross-listed as IME 664. Introduction to the design and control of technologically-based projects. Considers both the theoretical and practical aspects of systems models, organizational development, project planning and control, resource allocation, team development and personal skill assessment. Prerequisites: IME 255, (IME 254 or ENGT 354), all with a C or better.
