  14. What are Engineers? • Problem Solvers • Jobs: • Research • Design • Production • Manufacturing • Missions • Operations • Sales • Management • Marketing

  15. When Must I Declare My Major? • First semester is nearly common but, Watch out for Computer Engineering • Engineering Students should declare EE/ME by the spring semester of their first year • Faculty Advisors available for consultation

  16. How long does it take? • Most students graduate in 4 years • Many students choose a 4 ½ or 5 year plan to allow for: • Pre-Calculus (5 yr) • ROTC (4 ½ or 5 yr) • Co-op (5yr) • Extracurricular Activities • Math major or other minor • More relaxed pace

  17. What about an honors program? • Begins with University Honors program in Freshman year • Engineering honors courses in junior/senior years • Requires one extra technical elective • Offers a greater challenge

  18. Tau Beta Pi National Engineering Honor Society C.U. Chapter Chartered 2001

  19. Do you work with industry? • Significant technology and industrial activity in the Miami Valley – many internships each summer • Engineering Advisory Board provides guidance annually • Plant Tours and Senior Design projects offer “real world” experiences • Student chapters of ASME, IEEE, SAE, SWE, ACM • Co-op program option

  20. What is Cooperative Education?(Co-op Program) • Voluntary work-study program • Provides student with industrial experience before graduation • Supervised by a company engineer • Part of their education program • Students maintain full-time status • Adds one year to the BS program • Students receive a Co-op certificate

  21. How is Co-op scheduled?

  22. What is Professional Licensure? • All engineering students take our practice Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam • We encourage students to take the actual FE exam (fist step toward licensure) • We have a very high pass rate on the FE exam

  23. How do you compare?

  24. Can Engineers Serve in Missions? • Professionals (tent makers) have access to many countries • Many mission boards are seeking engineers to address third world problems • Cedarville engineering and computer science students and faculty have gone overseas during the summer • Cedarville engineering alumni have gone overseas after graduation • Employers recognize the importance of values and a good work ethic

  25. SEAM Student Organization • Society of Engineers Aiding Missions • Students & advisor recently went to HCJB headquarters • Engineering Outreach to Liberia established in 2006

  26. Recent Liberia Projects • 1. Cooling system for the ELWA campus diesel generators • 2. Medical waste incinerator • 3. Water pumping and distribution system for ELWA campus 4. Solar-powered reading lamps

  27. Computer Science in Romania

  28. Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) • Army and Air Force ROTC Detachments on campus. • Affiliated with Central State University (Army) and Wright State University (Air Force). • Great scholarships available for engineering students (type vary by year with military needs) • Table set up on second floor of ENS during lab tours this afternoon.

  29. What does Cedarville Expect of me?

  30. Computer Literacy? • No, incoming students cover the spectrum • The Freshmen year introduces computers and a number of computing tools • Students learn new computer applications very quickly • It is helpful if you know a word processor, spreadsheet, & programming language

  31. Should I Bring My Own Computer? • Not a bad idea, most students now bring a laptop for use in the dorm. • Most engineering software is not licensed to run on student-provided computers so type (PC v.s. Apple) not an issue. • We provide up-to-date equipment in labs. • Useful for e-mail, Internet, report writing. • Wireless internet available campus wide.

  32. What calculatordo I need? • A basic scientific calculator is fine • Exponentials & logarithms • Trig functions & their inverses, with degree and radian modes • Rectangular to polar conversion • Binary/octal/hexadecimal modes nice if EE, CpE, or CS major • Hyperbolic functions & their inverses • Graphing and symbolic manipulations not necessary

  33. What Courses Should I TakeIn High School? • Math, algebra, more math, geometry • Trig, more math, Pre Calculus • CU Offers Pre Calculus online in summer • Physics & Chemistry • Two or more years of the sameforeign language • English composition (AP not accepted by CU) • AP calculus & physics are helpful but not required

  34. What Can I do to get ahead? • While in High School • Consider Dual Enrollment • See www.cedarville.edu/dualenrollment • Pre-Calculus Fall/Spring • Engineering Graphics Summer • Bible, History, Composition, Literature… • Summer before coming • Pre-Calculus on-line • Engineering Graphics

  35. What’s in the ______ major?
