ME 347: Mathematical Theory of Dislocations

The mathematical theory of straight and curvilinear dislocations in linear elastic solids. Stress fields, energies, and Peach-Koehler forces associated with these line imperfections. Anisotropic effects, Green's function methods, and the geometrical techniques of Brown and Indenborn-Orlov for computing dislocation fields and for studying dislocation interactions. Continuously distributed dislocations and cracks and inclusions.

ME 350A: Design @ the Intersection of Science, Technology, and Entrepreneurship

This 1 credit class is for graduate students who are passionate about turning their research into a product or service. This is a chance to explore the potential impact of your work beyond your lab or research group. We are looking for students from the sciences, engineering, or mathematics, or students who have business acumen or start-up experience focused on technology driven companies. If you want to get out of your lab, away from your machine, and start to design your future come join us. The class will begin your journey from research to product conceptualization and user centered design through exercises and group activities. We¿ll meet once a week over the quarter in 10 self-contained 2 hour workshops where students will focus on their own work as well as explore the practical applications of fellow students¿ ideas, experience team formation and collaboration, and begin to explore product and service design. Aside from class time you will need to commit up to one hour per week outside the class on customer and market exploration. Advisors from industry and academia will mentor student teams. The class will be structured for individuals with team formation optional.

ME 359: ReDesigning the Neonatal ICU

Redesigning the Neonatal ICU will inform students about current challenges in the NICU environment through expert speakers, literature, CAPE simulations and field trips. Simultaneously, we will be studying the users: their environment, their behavior, and their emotions. Our goal is to identify needs that will lead to product, system or service innovation that will improve safety and quality of care. Student groups will have structured access to NICU clinicians at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital, as well as parents of preterm infants for conducting ethnography. Opportunities for direct observation in the hospital will be planned as well. Physical prototypes and/or scenarios can be tested and presented at CAPE's simulation lab in order to give students a realistic environment in which to evaluate and present their ideas. For more information, and to see a confirmed list of guest speakers for this class, please visit our class website: http://www.redesignhealthcare.org/redesigning-the-neonatal-icu/
