Engineering science is the discipline that encompasses the different scientific principles and associated mathematics underlying engineering applications. DES offers basic and fundamental courses on engineering graphics, mathematics, mechanics, thermodynamics, computer applications, and materials in engineering.
Every engineering creation around us—such as roads, bridges buildings, cars, mobile phones, computers—started with the creation of designs, plans, and models requiring knowledge of engineering graphics. Hence, engineering graphics provides essentials skills applicable throughout every engineer’s professional career.

Mechanics of solid bodies plays a vital role not only in the daily lives of everyone, but throughout the domain of nature. The roofs, the bridges, the machines that we use everyday – all these are based on the principle of mechanics.
The knowledge of determining stresses and strains in bodies is fundamental in an engineer’s profession and allows the engineer to understand any structure that they will encounter.
ENSC 14, 14a
Thermodynamics is the branch of the physical sciences that deals with the various phenomena involving thermal energy and the related properties of matter, especially the laws of transformation of heat into other forms of energy and vice-versa.
ENSC 14a, 15
Heat transfer is commonly encountered in numerous engineering systems and other aspects of life. It plays a vital role in the design of many ordinary household appliances such as electric or gas ranges, heating and air-conditioning system, refrigerator, water heater, iron, and computers. It is also important in the design of car radiators, solar collectors, vehicles, various components of power plants, and even in the design of buildings.
ENSC 16, 16.1
The engineer must study the principles of fluid mechanics so that they can use them to predict and control the behavior of fluids. The science of fluid mechanics is basic to the design of water conveyance facilities and impoundment not only from the structural viewpoint but also from the viewpoint of design of basic machinery where the control and transfer of fluids, power development, and fluid pollution control are involved.
The engineer must study differential equations and the methods of solution in solving them because almost all processes and designs are necessarily described by differential equations. It is vital for engineers to learn how to solve such equations analytically and numerically.
Computer Applications in Engineering
Now that sophisticated computers are available, solution of complex mathematical models can now be accomplished with ease so that the actual solution techniques are no longer nearly as important as the basic analysis involved in developing the mathematical models. Thus, every engineering student should have a sufficient knowledge in computer technology especially in programming.
