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, Spr, Sum | Units: 3 | UG Reqs: GER:DB-EngrAppSci, WAY-AQR

ME 101: Visual Thinking

ME101 is the foundation class for all designers and creative people at Stanford. It teaches you how to access your creativity through a series of projects. Visual thinking, a powerful adjunct to other problem solving modalities, is developed and exercised in the context of solving some fun and challenging design problems. Along the way, the class expands your access to your imagination, helps you see more clearly with the "mind's eye", and learn how to do rapid visualization and prototyping. The emphasis on basic creativity, learning to build in the 3D world, and fluent and flexible idea production.

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.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr | Units: 3

ME 103: Product Realization: Design and Making

ME103 is designed for sophomores or juniors in mechanical engineering or product design. Students are asked to pick a product with meaning to them; develop a point of view which motivates a redesign of that product); manufacture a series of models (evaluation of multiple candidate products) including sketches, product use stories, rapid prototypes, 3D printed models, CAD documents, manufacturing test models, and finally a customer ready prototype. The prototype will be redesigned for scaled manufacturing to develop a sound foundation in manufacturing processes, design guidelines, materials choices, and opportunities they provide. The student¿s body of work will be presented in a large public setting, Meet the Makers, through a professional grade portfolio which shares and reflects on their product realization adventure.

ME 104B: Designing Your Life

This course applies the mindsets and innovation principles of design thinking to the "wicked problem" of designing your life and vocation. The course introduces design thinking processes through application: students practice awareness and empathy, define areas of life and work on which hey want to work, ideate about ways to move forward, try small prototypes, and test their assumptions. The course is highly interactive. The course will include brief readings, writing, reflections, and in-class exercises. Expect to practice ideation and prototyping methodologies, decision making practices and to participate in hands on activities in pairs, trios, and small groups. Also includes roleplaying, assigned conversations with off campus professionals, guest speakers, and individual mentoring and coaching. It will conclude with creation of 3 versions of the next 5 years and prototype ideas to begin making those futures a reality. Open to juniors, seniors and 5th year coterms, all majors. All enrolled and waitlisted students should attend class on day 1 for admission. Additional course information at http://www.designingyourlife.org.

ME 104S: Designing Your Stanford (EDUC 118S)

DYS uses a Design Thinking approach to help Freshmen and Sophomores learn practical tools and ideas to make the most of their Stanford experience. Topics include the purpose of college, major selection, educational and vocational wayfinding, and innovating college outcomes, explored through the design thinking process. This seminar class incorporates small group discussion, in-class activities, field exercises, personal reflection, and individual coaching. Expect ideation tools, storytelling practices, prototyping to discover more about yourself and possible paths forward. The course concludes with creation of multiple versions of what college might look like and how to make those ideas reality. All enrolled and waitlisted students should attend class on day 1 for admission. Additional course information at http://www.designingyourstanford.org.

ME 110: Design Sketching

Design Visualization, offers students a unique opportunity to acquire a new (visual) language over the span of one short quarter. Imagine a process whereby you can close your eyes, and, after a few short weeks, leveraging established Design Principles, open them, and imagine/draw virtually anything that comes to mind. This is our pledge to you, independent of your previous sketching experience. This course melds basics with Industrial Design discipline (which creates the aesthetic, experience of products and services), dividing it into two parts; the ability to representationally draw in three-dimensions, while exploring the nuances of form & materials. ME110 initially focuses on the first component, building the structural foundation for perspective drawing, then introducing basic lighting and shading theory to 'complete the picture'. Analysis gives way to individual choice, as confidence builds. While we express & explore solutions with traditional analog medium, we bridge 'the digital divide', expressing final projects in several media choices, stirring in portfolio & professional advice enroute.

ME 110B: Digital Design Principles and Applications

Building upon foundation design principles, project-based individual / group exploration and critique facilitates a self-guided learning process, where analytical problem-solving approaches are cultivated through real-time implementation in digital tools. A series of diverse projects are brought together in conjunction with related student project portfolio development. Class Prerequisites: Students must have completed ME110 with high levels of understanding, engagement. May be repeat for credit
