14 What are Engineers? Problem Solvers Jobs: Research Design Production Manufacturing Missions Operations Sales Management Marketing
15 When Must I Declare My Major? First semester is nearly common but, Watch out for Computer Engineering Engineering Students should declare EE/ME by the spring semester of their first year Faculty Advisors available for consultation
16 How long does it take ? Most students graduate in 4 years Many students choose a 4 ½ or 5 year plan to allow for: Pre-Calculus (5 yr) ROTC (4 ½ or 5 yr) Co-op (5yr) Extracurricular Activities Math major or other minor More relaxed pace
17 What about an honors program? Begins with University Honors program in Freshman year Engineering honors courses in junior/senior years Requires one extra technical elective Offers a greater challenge
18 Tau Beta Pi C.U. Chapter Chartered 2001 National Engineering Honor Society
19 Do you work with industry? Significant technology and industrial activity in the Miami Valley – many internships each summer Engineering Advisory Board provides guidance annually Plant Tours and Senior Design projects offer real world experiences Student chapters of ASME, IEEE, SAE, SWE, ACM Co-op program option
20 What is Cooperative Education? (Co-op Program) Voluntary work-study program Provides student with industrial experience before graduation Supervised by a company engineer Part of their education program Students maintain full-time status Adds one year to the BS program Students receive a Co-op certificate
21 FallSpringSummer Freshman School Open (school/work) Sophomore School Open (school/work) Junior I SchoolCo-op IOpen (school/work) Junior II Co-op IISchoolCo-op III Senior School How is Co-op scheduled?
22 What is Professional Licensure? All engineering students take our practice Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam We encourage students to take the actual FE exam (fist step toward licensure) We have a very high pass rate on the FE exam
24 Can Engineers Serve in Missions? Professionals (tent makers) have access to many countries Many mission boards are seeking engineers to address third world problems Cedarville engineering and computer science students and faculty have gone overseas during the summer Cedarville engineering alumni have gone overseas after graduation Employers recognize the importance of values and a good work ethic
25 SEAM Student Organization Society of Engineers Aiding Missions Students & advisor recently went to HCJB headquarters Engineering Outreach to Liberia established in 2006
26 Recent Liberia Projects 1. Cooling system for the ELWA campus diesel generators 2. Medical waste incinerator 3. Water pumping and distribution system for ELWA campus 4. Solar-powered reading lamps
28 Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) Army and Air Force ROTC Detachments on campus. Affiliated with Central State University (Army) and Wright State University (Air Force). Great scholarships available for engineering students (type vary by year with military needs) Table set up on second floor of ENS during lab tours this afternoon.
30 Computer Literacy? No, incoming students cover the spectrum The Freshmen year introduces computers and a number of computing tools Students learn new computer applications very quickly It is helpful if you know a word processor, spreadsheet, & programming language
31 Should I Bring My Own Computer? Not a bad idea, most students now bring a laptop for use in the dorm. Most engineering software is not licensed to run on student-provided computers so type (PC v.s. Apple) not an issue. We provide up-to-date equipment in labs. Useful for e-mail, Internet, report writing. Wireless internet available campus wide.
32 What calculator do I need? A basic scientific calculator is fine Exponentials & logarithms Trig functions & their inverses, with degree and radian modes Rectangular to polar conversion Binary/octal/hexadecimal modes nice if EE, CpE, or CS major Hyperbolic functions & their inverses Graphing and symbolic manipulations not necessary
33 What Courses Should I Take In High School? Math, algebra, more math, geometry Trig, more math, Pre Calculus CU Offers Pre Calculus online in summer Physics & Chemistry Two or more years of the same foreign language English composition (AP not accepted by CU) AP calculus & physics are helpful but not required
34 What Can I do to get ahead? While in High School Consider Dual Enrollment See www.cedarville.edu/dualenrollmentwww.cedarville.edu/dualenrollment Pre-Calculus Fall/Spring Engineering Graphics Summer Bible, History, Composition, Literature… Summer before coming Pre-Calculus on-line Engineering Graphics
36 Liberal Arts Foundation Bible Curriculum (5 courses) Composition, Speech, Literature Physical Education (1 course) Social Sciences (4 courses) Biology
37 Distinctives of Cedarville Emphasis on fundamentals Solid theoretical foundation Extensive laboratory experiences Professors who love their students Opportunities to work on team projects Opportunities to interact with professionals Program couched in a Liberal Arts education Opportunities to develop communication skills
40 Laboratory Experiences Heat Transfer Refrigeration Materials Testing Engine Test Cell Dynamics of Machines Engineering Graphics Digital Logic Design Circuits & Instrumentation Fluids Senior Design Manufacturing Vibrations Mechanics Electrical Machines Controls Shop
41 Current ME Senior Design Proposal Weekly meetings Deadlines Oral Presentation Written Reports Design Reviews Product Fabrication Aero Design Competition Novel Engine Design Human Powered Hydrofoil Macrofluidics Design Partial Hip Replacement Formula SAE Race Car Solar Boat Propeller and Hydrofoils

52 Comments from YSI The design project is a win-win situation, where the EE students take on a real-life product development project, and YSI benefits from the infusion of new ideas presented by the students. As an engineer, I find it very rewarding to see the student teams progress with their projects throughout their senior year, and am always impressed with the end product. Cedarville EE students, and their instructors, are of a very high caliber. J. Lussier, YSI Director of R&D Environmental Products Group, 2004
54 Cedarville has consistently performed well. For three years running, Cedarvilles top team has placed as the number one team from Ohio, ahead of teams from schools such as the Ohio State University, University of Cincinnati, Ohio University and Miami University. Since 2003, Cedarville has been the number one CCCU school in the east central region. Xenia Gazette, January 14, 2010 CS In the News
