Engineering

Overview

It is a privilege to provide you with information about the engineering program at Grace College. Grace teams with Trine University in Angola, Indiana to offer bachelor of engineering degrees on the Grace College campus.

Grace, in partnership with Trine University, will be offering three stems for the engineering degree: biomedical engineering management, civil engineering management, and mechanical engineering management. Students will be able to choose the stem of their choice, or take general classes for the first year and then decide which program they in which they will specialize. The engineering degrees will take four years to complete.

Trine University is committed to having students explore, experience, and excel in every area of engineering. Engineering is a large and broad field of study that students are increasingly choosing as a major. Engineers combine science and math to seek answers and to find solutions to technical problems. Whether designing and creating a new product or working in testing, production, and maintenance, engineering students seek to meet societal and consumer needs. The engineering program at Grace College allows students to use their creative ability combined with the latest technology to advance their school, city, state, and country.

Courses

Examples of courses in this major:

CH 104 General Chemistry

Fundamentals of chemistry with emphasis on atomic structure, stoichiometry, thermochemistry, properties of solution, properties of matter. The laboratory is quantitative in nature.

ENG 133 Technical Communication

Emphasizes clear writing and oral communication in professional instruction situations for technical fields. Concentration on project-oriented, which includes creating technical documents (email, reports, proposals, instructions, et.al.) and adapting them to specific audiences and tasks.

MAE 303 Mechanics of Machinery

Topics include: study of the kinematics and dynamics of mechanisms. Fundamentals of displacement, velocity, and acceleration analysis of rigid bodies as a basis for the study of mechanisms. Motion analysis of linkages, cams, and gearing. Static and inertia force in machines. Balancing of rotating and reciprocating mass.

CE 3203 Civil Engineering Materials

Testing and evaluation of physical and mechanical properties of engineering materials. Origin, manufacture, and structural applications of metals, aggregates, bituminous materials (including superpave), portland cement, and concrete.

BME 423 Bio-Medical Human Mechanics
