- Official Syllabus on Department Web Page
- Prerequisites: PHY 126 and 127 or PHY 132/134; U2 standing; ESG Major;
Pre- or Corequisite(s): WRT 102; Co-requisite: ESG300+ESG 312
- Upper-Division Writing Requirement (UDWR)
- E-Report is part of the UDWR. 5-page, 12pt Arial, 1" margins, d-space report using
valid references on a contemporary engineering issue (pulled from the headlines)
or engineering ethics.
- Portfolio is submission of ALL written work and MSPPT-slides of presentation
in a labelled three-ring binder. Can be mixture of graded and ungraded work.
- Computer coding/programming requirement is your selection of software
to solve ANY sizeable issue/problem in one of the experiments/procedures.
Grade is dependent upon nature of problem. Easy problem yields low grade.
Printed code, input, and output must be submitted for grade.
Digital code, input, and output must be submitted, upon request.
- [new for 2012] DoE specification (in specialization): design of
experiment (DoE) (3-page, 12pt Arial, 1-inch margins, 2-dspace)
within your area of interest (AoI) (aka speciliazation).
- [new for 2012] LLL schedule and training: (same format at DoE (3,12,1,2)) document
meeting, training, exams, books, etc... (from reputable professional
societies (MRS, ASM, ASTM, IEEE, ASME, etc...) that you will potentially
use (in 2019) to show a committment to live-long-learning (LLL). Stay within
- Weekly Schedule (accept for one week, all activities in room 001):
- Monday lecture 10:00-10:50, on-time, not late, attendance not optional (OTNLANO)
- Labs (OTNLANO):
Section-1 Monday 2:30-5:30
Section-2 Tuesday 2:30-5:20
Section-3 Tuesday 5:30-8:20
- Wednesday lecture 10:00-10:50, OTNLANO, weekly presentations, and follow-up
- Course learning outcomes:
- How to follow standard procedures to obtain repeatable and reproducible results;
- How to acquire, process, and analyze data to express those results;
- Effectively write documents and reports to express engineering and scientific results.
- Effectively create graph/plot data to express the same.
- Effectively create tables of data to express the same.
- Effectively deliver oral presentations to express the same.
- Evaluate the above work of other engineers to improve the above expression.
- Program and Student Outcomes
- Persistent Topics:
- Writing guidelines and stylistic elements for technical manuscripts.
- The most common errors in the above documents.
- Acceptable formats for figures and tables in refereed journals and similar publications.
- The most common errors in the above.
- The style, format, and content of engineering oral-presentations to achieve clear, complete, correct, concise, and compelling communication of results.
- Mechanism of critique and feedback for documents and oral presentations.

- Fees (requires password)
- Send e-mail to
JQ regarding these pages.
- Dress Code:
All activities will happen within the laboratory.
Hence, dress appropriately for a laboratory with
chemicals, cryogens, and heavy equipment. Shorts, skirts,
sandals, flip-flops, etc.... are not acceptable.
You will not be allowed in the laboratory, unless properly attired.
- Required items for laboratory:
- Three-ring binder for portfolio. Neatly
labelled on front cover, back cover, and edge
with YOUR name, ESG312, Engineering Laboratory, Fall 20__.
- Pen(s), no pencils
- Suggest you obtain a three-hole punch.
- Official Stony Brook Course Catalogue Description:
Laboratory exercises and lectures covering the theory, practice, and design of engineering experimentation.
The course has three components: error analysis and data massage; electrical circuits and experiment
control; and mechanical and optical measurement. Laboratory fee required.
- Letter grade of "C or higher" is required in ESG312 for ESG-majors.
