3. Requested Action (check only one box): 
X  New Course 
 Revision of Active Course 
 Revision & Unbanking of a Banked Course 
 Renumbering of an Existing Course  from  #  to  # 
4. Justification for new course or course revision or renumbering: Program assessment has indicated that some entering engineering students would benefit from an intensive review of engineering fundamentals and an introduction to the analytical tools of the engineering profession. This proposed course is a part of a revision of the engineering program to achieve several goals: 1) more closely align content with general engineering programs; 2) adjust the timing and coverage of materials to support success in the fundamentals of engineering exam; 3) adjust the sequence of science, mathematics, and engineering courses to better integrate the content. These changes have been developed and approved by the department faculty and have been endorsed by the Engineering Advisory Board. 
5. Course description exactly as it should appear in the next catalog: 1002 Fundamentals of Engineering Practice (5) (SS) 5 lecture hours per week. P: Consent of Instructor. Introduction to the engineering profession and related tools. Topics include engineering applications and concepts, engineering graphics, analysis of forces, dimensions, and engineering software tools.

6. If this is a course revision, briefly describe the requested change:
