LSC-Montgomery Offering ‘Intro to Engineering’ Course this Spring

Published on: November 02, 2012

Students heading down the path to an engineering degree can now start their education at Lone Star College-Montgomery.

Beginning in this spring, LSC-Montgomery will offer Introduction to Engineering (ENGR 1201), on Mondays and Wednesdays, from 11-11:53 a.m.

This primer course is geared for students interested in pursuing a degree in engineering at a four-year university. According to David Quarles, professor of math at LSC-Montgomery and engineering course instructor, this class is a requirement for most engineering programs at major institutions.

“The course lays the foundation for an aspiring engineer by introducing them to the engineering profession, the various engineering disciplines, and the engineering analysis and design process,” said Quarles, who holds a bachelor’s degree in bioengineering and a master’s degree in electrical engineering.

The course will offer hands-on training on the fundamentals of the engineering disciplines through labs and a group design project.

Engineering is the branch of science and technology concerned with the design, building, and use of engines, machines and structures. There are a variety of field options to specialize in, including aerospace, chemical, industrial, mechanical, and petroleum engineering.

Registration for the spring semester at LSC-Montgomery begins Wednesday, November 7. For convenience, students can register, search for courses, and pay tuition online at MyLoneStar.edu.
