Three engineering students surveying the land for their engineering survey course Casper College offers all of the courses required in the first two years of the engineering curriculum at the University of Wyoming and most major universities throughout the United States. Our students have successfully transferred to, and graduated from, universities in the region as well as many others throughout the nation.

One of the great advantages is our small class size, along with a faculty devoted to you, the student.  This advantage has been a major factor in the success of our students as they transfer to their next school. Students transferring from Casper College can boast a higher grade-point average in their junior and senior engineering courses than students starting a university.

The Engineering Department faculty take pride in maintaining the ability to offer students traditional labs and computer labs with up-to-date equipment. The Engineering Department also offers courses via Internet.

ENTK 1010 Elements of Surveying (2L,3LB,3CR):
The principles of land surveying include distance measurement, elevations and angles. This course includes fundamentals of trigonometry, the necessary review of algebraic principles, and a thorough introduction to the surveying instruments and their use. Lecture material is accompanied by field measurements providing adequate practical experience. Following the course, students should be able to assist with a survey crew or lay out a simple construction site. An introduction to the U.S. public land system and the principles of the GPS system are included.

ES 1000 Introduction to Engineering Orientation (1L,1CR)[E][I][L]:
Orientation course to provide students with exposure to all forms of engineering.

ES 1060 Introduction to Engineering Computing (2L,2LB,3CR)[E]:
An introduction to engineering documentation and reports, computing tools for data presentation and graphics, equation solving, and manipulation of tabular data. Corequisite: MATH 2200.

ES 1100 Introduction to Rocketry (1L,2LB,2CR):
This introductory course in rocketry will provide an overview of various rocket propulsion concepts such as solid, hybrid, liquid, nuclear and antimatter. It will focus on composite solid rocket motors and cover their design, ballistic analysis, structural analysis, and thermal analysis. The course will discuss the design, analysis and constructor of rocket bodies including structural analysis, flight stability and recovery systems.

ES 1490 Topics: (Subtitle) (1-3L,1-3CR):
Consists of investigations and discussions with respect to current topics in engineering.

ES 2110 Statics (4L,*,4CR)[E]:
*One problem class each week. Analysis of force systems in equilibrium while at rest. Includes forces as vectors acting at a point and on structures, distributed forces, and friction. Centroid and moment of inertia of areas and solids. Prerequisite: MATH 2200.

ES 2120 Dynamics (4L,*,4CR)[E]:
*One problem class each week. The study of particle and body motion. Includes the study of translation and rotation and the related concepts of work, energy, impulse, and momentum. Prerequisite: ES 2110 and MATH 2205, PHYS 1310, or concurrent enrollment.

ES 2210 Engineering Circuit Theory (3L,*,2LB,4CR)[E]:
*One problem class each week. A basic course in electrical engineering circuit analysis for all engineering majors. Emphasis is placed on basic circuit theory, circuit modeling, analytical methods, network theorems, and first order circuits. Corequisite: ES 2120.

ES 2310 Thermodynamics (4L,4CR)[E]:
A first course in classical thermodynamics governing processes related to heat work and equilibrium of gaseous liquid, and solid systems. Prerequisite: ES 2120, MATH 2210.

ES 2330 Fluid Dynamics (4L,*,4CR)[E]:
* One problem class each week. Characteristics and behavior of fluids. Applications of Bernoulli and Euler equations of equilibrium. Study of surface tension, vapor pressure, viscosity, and shear stress of fluids. Analysis of laminar and turbulent flow in pipes. Prerequisite: MATH 2210, MATH 2310, or concurrent enrollment.

ES 2410 Mechanics of Materials I (4L,*,4CR)[E]:
* One problem class each week. The mechanics of deformable bodies. Topics include stress and strain of structures and machine components. The course will include an introduction to the design process. Prerequisite: ES 2110.
