Introduction to Engineering requires a lecture and lab component. The course meets on Tuesdays from 8-10:15 am and on Thursdays from 8-9am.
Labs are to be emailed as pdf files to Professor Hosannah. Projects have two components- a) group reports that must be sent as pdf, and the project files that are to be opened with the associated software.
Moving forward, The lecture hour will include powerpoint lectures via the Blackboard Collaborate Ultra medium, with lecture files and accompanying materials to be made available on blackboard.
Physical labs will be replaced by software simulations. The first hour will involve a tutorial session, and the second will be the practical hour, during which students will apply the tutorial learnings to solve a problem, or perform a section of programming towards their lab assignments/group projects.
Students will use a variety of concepts and skills developed in every week lecture to design and builda digital clock using Multisim circuit design software. Students will deisgn a 12-hour or 24-hour clock, which will involve using counters, decoders, seven-segment displays and other components.
Students are required to download and install Multisim™ Education version. Multisim is circuits designapplication for analog, digital, and power electronics courses and laboratories.

Robotics and Automation Project is an engaging simulation of the industrial automated manufacturing process. Teams of two students layout and program a robotic production system as a solution to the project scenario.
For this project students will use The ScorBot ER-4U robot arm 3D simulation software that simulate the same Robot arm we have in our enineering Lab at LaGuardia Community Collge.
The robot Design Module Course and activities will be availale from LearnMate platform. A student is required to create an account in order to enroll to the Robotics Module course. Please follow below steps to get access to the course content:
In order to license and use the RobotCell Software, RoboCell needs to be launched from the course content. You don’t need to remain logged into the content or even the site, but you must launch the software from one of the many links found within the course activity. Once that’s done, this process temporarily licenses the software for 3-4 hours, and at that point LearnMate can be exited, minimized, etc. When the temporary license expires, you can log back into the content, click another launch link again to re-apply the license and they’re good to go for another 3-4 hours.
To launch the software go to activity 3 and navigate to Running RoboCell and Opening a Project (9/51) in the content click the link where it says “Click here to open the project for this activity in RoboCell.” the software will launch without any licensing request.
