II. New Courses

GLY 1010 Introduction to Earth Science (3). GLY 1010L Introduction to Earth Science Lab (1). Basic survey of Earth materials and structure, plate tectonics, volcanoes, earthquakes, surface processes and groundwater, climate change, earth resources and the impact of geology on society. Mandatory for those students who did not finish five technical electives by Fall 2009 (this course substitute one technical elective, now the Civil Engineering program has four technical electives).

EEL 3110 Circuit Analysis (3). Introductory circuit analysis dealing with DC, AC, and transient electrical circuit analysis and the general excitation of circuits using the Laplace transform. Not for Electrical Engineering majors. Prerequisites: MAC 2312, PHY 2049. Corequisites: MAP 2302. This course will replace course EEL3003 Electrical Engineering (3), starting Spring 2011.
