Thermodynamics is the science of transferring energy from one place or form into another place or form which includes the study of heat and temperature and the relation of these factors to work, energy, and power.
Mass Transfer & Separation is the science that explains and governs a range of separation processes to include absorption, distillation, humidification and drying, and membrane separations, as well as transport processes in equilibrium.
Chemical Reaction & Catalysis is important to engineering literacy as it is the knowledge in which engineering professionals use to analyze and design new products and processes by controlling and using chemical reactions.
Algebra is a branch of mathematics that focuses on the conventions related to the use of letters and other general symbols, known as variables, to represent numbers and quantities, without fixed values, in formulae and equations.
Structural Analysis concerns the process of determining the effects of loads, or forces, on physical structures, as well as their individual components, and examining what factors influence the deflection and deformation of these structural elements.
Transportation Infrastructure encompasses all the interrelated physical support systems that provide the services, utilities, and commodities necessary for moving people and cargo within, and between communities/countries, in order for society to function proficiently.
Hydrologic Systems encompass all of the interrelated physical structures and devices as well as the natural environment (including precipitation, evaporation, streamflow, surface runoff, groundwater movement, etc.) that effect, and help manage, the movement, distribution, and properties of water.
Geotechnics concerns the knowledge of the ways in which Earth’s materials (i.e. rock and soil) behave under stresses and strains in order to determine how structures and products interact, or will interact, with their surrounding environments as well as how the Earth’s materials can be used to mitigate, prevent, or solve problems.
Communication Technologies are the systems and products that extend the ability to collect, analyze, store, manipulate, receive, and transmit information or data which can include anything from graphic media to computers, cellular devices, and fiber optics.
