What do syllabi look like in the authors' courses?

Below you will find sample syllabus and schedules for the courses we teach at Clemson University. For all our courses, we use one main syllabus (GE Syllabus 2010 - 2011) to cover the basic policies for all courses we teach. In addition to this document, we outline the policies specific to each course in a course specific syllabus (such as CES 102 Sample Syllabus). 

CES 102 Engineering Disciplines and Skills: 2 credits (contact hours: 1 lecture, 2 lab)

Provides solid foundation of skills to solve engineering problems. Students demonstrate problem solving techniques with spreadsheets, dimensions and units; use modeling techniques and interpret validity of experimental results. Students design projects on multi-discipline teams. Introduces professional and societal issues appropriate to engineering. Various forms of technical communication are emphasized. Coreq: MTHSC 104 or 106.

ENGR 130 Engineering Fundamentals: 2 credits (contact hours: 1 lecture, 2 lab)

Students formulate and solve engineering problems using advanced spreadsheet applications, dimensional analysis, graphical representation of various physical phenomena, mathematical models and statistics. Various forms of technical communication are emphasized. Credit toward a degree will be given for only one of ENGR 130 or 141. Preq: C E S 102; Coreq: MTHSC 106 or 107.

ENGR 141 Programming and Problem Solving: 3 credits (contact hours: 2 lecture, 2 lab)

Students formulate and solve engineering problems using MATLAB; estimate answers for comparison to computed solutions; read, interpret and write programs, instructions and output; iterate, evaluate conditional statements; and debug. Various forms of technical communication are emphasized. Credit toward a degree will be given for only one of ENGR 130 or 141. Preq: C E S 102; Coreq: MTHSC 106 or 107.
