Title of Proposal: Program Curriculum Change-ENGR.

Adding ENGR 1671 Computing Fundamentals for Engineers to Area F


Initiator and place of origin: Anant Honkan, Chair of College-wide Engineering Discipline Committee, Engineering Professor at Clarkston. Submitting proposal through the Clarkston Faculty Senate

Course Curriculum Chair:



Dr. Anant Honkan [sign if committee agrees; attach comments]
Proposal connected with other Proposal(s), #(s): Proposal creating course ENGR 1671
Implementation date of the Proposal: Fall, 2007
Rationale and brief description of Proposal must be attached: Completing the ENGR 1671 will enable students transferring to GA Tech under the RETP program offered with GPC to begin taking engineering courses right away after transfer. Otherwise students are required to show competence in the use of the MatLab language either thru taking at GA Tech CS1171 or CS1371 before they can take any engineering course. GPC’s ENGR 1671 is equivalent to GA Tech’s CS 1371. Additionally, in our external program review last year, the recommendation was made that GPC offer more engineering courses to satisfy student needs.
