Science and Technology I: Introduction

Course Number: 
BT 222
The course is the first in a four-course sequence for the business and technology program students. The sequence of courses is designed to provide the student with an overview of modern sciences and technologies, as well as scientific and engineering methodologies. This first course will cover the scientific method and the differentiation of science from quasi-sciences, mechanics, and introduction to electrical circuits. The course is taught using common systems such as the telephone network as a focus and the science and engineer principles are developed as the system is dissected. A three-hour laboratory is an integral part of the course and includes experimentation, demonstrations, and group projects. The science sequence, where possible, also covers the science necessary to understand the technologies utilized by the various companies chosen by the students for their internships.
