Blinn statics course investigates the forces that keep the world in balance

ENGR 2301 further develops the analytical skills so crucial to engineers

August 3, 2017

Students seeking to extend their math, physics, and engineering skills should consider ENGR 2301: Statics, a three-credit hour course investigating the forces that keep the world around us in balance.

Highlights include equilibrium in two and three dimensions, free-body diagrams, friction, centroids, centers of gravity, and moments of inertia.

“Students who successfully complete this sophomore-level engineering course along with their math and physics prerequisites are more competitive when they apply for transfer to four-year universities,” Professor Jeremy Coffelt said. “They will also be on schedule with their engineering counterparts when they do transfer.”

ENGR 2301 will be offered Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:10-10:25 a.m. on the Bryan Campus this Fall. To register, students must have successfully completed PHYS 2425, and have completed or be co-enrolled in MATH 2414.

Blinn’s academic transfer rate regularly ranks among the highest in the state and the nation. According to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB), Blinn’s academic transfer rate of 34.2 percent ranks second in the state and exceeds the statewide average of 21.1 percent.

THECB data shows that Blinn students who take 30 credit hours during the 2017-18 school year will save $3,717, approximately 42 percent, in tuition and fees compared to state residents at the average Texas public university.

Blinn’s Fall semester begins Monday, Aug. 28. To register, visit www.blinn.edu.
