ME 1: Introduction to Mechanical Engineering

This course is intended to be the starting point for Mechanical Engineering majors. It will cover the concepts, engineering methods, and common tools used by mechanical engineers while introducing the students to a few interesting devices. We will discuss how each device was conceived, design challenges that arose, application of analytical tools to the design, and production methods. Main class sections will include lectures, demonstrations, and in-class group exercises. Lab sections will develop specific skills in freehand sketching and computational modeling of engineering systems. Prerequisites: Physics: Mechanics, and first quarter Calculus.
Terms: Aut, Spr | Units: 3 | UG Reqs: WAY-AQR

ME 30: Engineering Thermodynamics

The basic principles of thermodynamics are introduced in this course. Concepts of energy and entropy from elementary considerations of the microscopic nature of matter are discussed. The principles are applied in thermodynamic analyses directed towards understanding the performances of engineering systems. Methods and problems cover socially responsible economic generation and utilization of energy in central power generation plants, solar systems, refrigeration devices, and automobile, jet and gas-turbine engines.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr | Units: 3 | UG Reqs: WAY-AQR, WAY-SMA

ME 80: Mechanics of Materials

Mechanics of materials and deformation of structural members. Topics include stress and deformation analysis under axial loading, torsion and bending, column buckling and pressure vessels. Introduction to stress transformation and multiaxial loading. Prerequisite: ENGR 14.
Terms: Aut, Win | Units: 3 | UG Reqs: GER:DB-EngrAppSci, WAY-AQR

ME 102: Foundations of Product Realization

Students develop the language and toolset to transform design concepts into tangible models/prototypes that cultivate the emergence of mechanical aptitude. Visual communication tools such as sketching, orthographic projection, and 2D/3D design software are introduced in the context of design and prototyping assignments. Instruction and practice with hand, powered, and digital prototyping tools in the Product Realization Lab support students implementation and iteration of physical project work. Project documentation, reflection, and in-class presentations are opportunities for students to find their design voice and practice sharing it with others. Prerequisite: ME 1 or ME 101 or consent of instructor.

ME 103: Product Realization: Design and Making

ME103 is designed for sophomores or juniors in mechanical engineering or product design. During the course students will develop a point of view around a product or object of their own design that is meaningful to them in some way. Students will evolve their ideas through a series of prototypes of increasing fidelity ¿ storyboards, sketches, CAD models, rough prototypes, 3D printed models, etc. The final project will be a high-fidelity product or object made with the PRL's manufacturing resources, giving students a sound foundation in fabrication processes, design guidelines, tolerancing, and material choices. The student's body of work will be presented in a large public setting, Meet the Makers, through a professional grade portfolio that shares and reflects on the student's product realization adventure. ME103 assumes familiarity with product realization fundamentals, CAD and 3D printing. Prerequisite for ME103: ME102.

ME 106: How to Redesign Everyday Things (for Beginners) (ARCHLGY 106Q)

Design encompasses a complex nexus of activity including ideating, prototyping, sharing, breaking, repairing, and discarding things. This class will focus 3 lenses on familiar every day designed objects: (a) historic and societal influences, (b) user need and interaction considerations, and (c) redesign and prototyping opportunities. Sessions interleave lessons in society, design, and usability, with hands-on practical skills in making, to bring new perspectives to students in both humanities and engineering. Students with enthusiasm and little or no experience in making are encouraged to join.
Terms: Aut | Units: 3

ME 128: Computer-Aided Product Realization

Students will continue to build understanding of Product Realization processes and techniques concentrating on Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines, materials, tools, and workholding. Students will gain an understanding of CNC in modern manufacturing and alternative methods and tools used in industry. Students will contribute to their professional portfolio by including projects done in class. Limited enrollment. Prerequisite: ME 103 and consent of instructor.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr | Units: 3-4

ME 131: Heat Transfer

The principles of heat transfer by conduction, convection, and radiation with examples from the engineering of practical devices and systems. Topics include transient and steady conduction, conduction by extended surfaces, boundary layer theory for forced and natural convection, boiling, heat exchangers, and graybody radiative exchange. Prerequisites: ME70, ME30 (formerly listed at ENGR30). Recommended: intermediate calculus, ordinary differential equations.This course was formerly ME131A. Students who have already taken ME131A should not enroll in this course.
Terms: Aut, Win | Units: 4 | UG Reqs: GER:DB-EngrAppSci

ME 132: Intermediate Thermodynamics

A second course in engineering thermodynamics. Review of first and second laws, and the state principle. Extension of property treatment to mixtures. Chemical thermodynamics including chemical equilibrium, combustion, and understanding of chemical potential as a driving force. Elementary electrochemical thermodynamics. Coursework includes both theoretical and applied aspects. Applications include modeling and experiments of propulsion systems (turbojet) and electricity generation (PEM fuel cell). Matlab is used for quantitative modeling of complex energy systems with real properties and performance metrics. Prerequisites: ME30 required, ME70 suggested, ME131 desirable.
Terms: Aut | Units: 4
Instructors: Edwards, C. (PI)

ME 161: Dynamic Systems, Vibrations and Control

Modeling, analysis, and measurement of mechanical and electromechanical dynamic systems. Closed form solutions of ordinary differential equations governing the behavior of single and multiple-degree-of-freedom systems. Stability, forcing, resonance, and control system design. Prerequisites: Ordinary differential equations ( CME 102 or MATH 53), linear algebra ( CME 104 or MATH 53) and dynamics (E 15) are recommended.
