What are Engineers?
  • Problem Solvers
  • Jobs
  • Research
  • Design
  • Production
  • Manufacturing
  • Missions

Operations Sales Management Marketing
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

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

What about an honors program?
  • Begins with University Honors program in Freshman
  • Engineering honors courses in junior/senior years
  • Requires one extra technical elective
  • Offers a greater challenge

Tau Beta Pi
National Engineering Honor Society
C.U. Chapter Chartered 2001
Do you work with industry?
  • Significant technology and industrial activity in
    the Miami Valley many internships each summer
  • Engineering Advisory Board provides guidance
  • Plant Tours and Senior Design projects offer
    real world experiences
  • Student chapters of ASME, IEEE, SAE, SWE, ACM
  • Co-op program option

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

How is Co-op scheduled?
Fall Spring Summer
Freshman School School Open (school/work)

Junior I School Co-op I Open (school/work)
Junior II Co-op II School Co-op III
Senior School School
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

How do you compare?
Can Engineers Serve in Missions?
  • Professionals (tent makers) have access to many
  • 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

    tours this afternoon.

What does Cedarville Expect of me?
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
  • It is helpful if you know a word processor,
    spreadsheet, programming language

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.

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

What Courses Should I TakeIn 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

What Can I do to get ahead?
  • While in High School
  • Consider Dual Enrollment
  • See www.cedarville.edu/dualenrollment
  • Pre-Calculus Fall/Spring
  • Engineering Graphics Summer
  • Bible, History, Composition, Literature
  • Summer before coming
  • Pre-Calculus on-line
  • Engineering Graphics

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.
