MAE 2000: Introduction to Mechanical Engineering
Credits: 3
Overview of the mechanical engineer's role as analyst and designer. Introduction to manufacturing tools, equipment, and processes; properties of materials relative to manufacture and design; communication through engineering graphics; engineering drawing interpretation, sectioning, auxiliary views; and analysis and design of mechanical devices. Workshop includes CAD and solid modeling. Prerequisite: PHYS 1425, Corequisite: APMA 2120
MAE 2010: Introduction to Aerospace Engineering
Credits: 3
Historical introduction, standard atmosphere, basic aerodynamics, airfoils and wings, flight mechanics, stability and control, propulsion (airbreathing, rocket and space), orbital mechanics.
ENGR 4595: Special Topics in Engineering
Credits: 1–3
Advance projects course to be taken in parallel with STS 4010, 4020, or can be used for an advanced undergraduate course on a topic not covered in the course offerings. Prerequisite: instructor permission.
BME 4995: Biomedical Engineering Advanced Projects
Credits: 1–3
A year-long research project in biomedical engineering conducted in consultation with a department faculty advisor; usually related to ongoing faculty research. Includes the design, execution, and analysis of experimental laboratory work and computational or theoretical computer analysis of a problem. Requires a comprehensive report of the results. Prerequisite: third- or fourth-year standing, and instructor permission.
MAE 6250: Multibody Mechanical Systems
Credits: 3
Analytical and computational treatment for modeling and simulation of 3-Dimensional multibody mechanical systems. Provide a systematic and consistent basis for analyzing the interactions between motion constraints, kinematics, static, dynamic, and control behavior of multibody mechanical systems. Applications to machinery, robotic devices and mobile robots, biomechanical models for gait analysis and human motions, and motion control. Matrix modeling procedures with symbolic and numerical computational tools will be utilized for demonstrating the methods developed in this course. Focus on the current research and computational tools and examine a broad spectrum of physical systems where multibody behavior is fundamental to their design and control. Prerequisite: Engineering degree and familiarity with a programming language.
