ME 235: Understanding Superfans and their Heroes

Harness the power of the hero coefficient through a radical team-based, hands-on, multidisciplinary class. Students will learn and utilize the principles of Empathy-Define-Ideate-Prototype-Test components of the d.thinking process. Why do superfans love their heroes? You'll get to prototype and explore how superfans connect with their heroes, understanding this connective tissue works will give your own ideas a boost. We'll be studying heroes the likes of Dale Earnhardt, Michael Jordan and Stephen Colbert. Expect to leave this class ready to spread the word about heroes and superfans and make everyone at your company or on your team feel like one. You will hear from special guests and take a field trip to a racetrack. Sponsored by the Revs Program. Limited enrollment. FAQ and apply here: http://revs.stanford.edu/course/693

ME 236: Tales to Design Cars By

Students learn to tell personal narratives and prototype connections between popular and historic media using the automobile. Explores the meaning and impact of personal and preserved car histories. Storytelling techniques serve to make sense of car experiences through engineering design principles and social learning, Replay memories, examine engagement and understand user interviews, to design for the mobility experience of the future. This course celebrates car fascination, and leads the student through finding and telling a car story through the REVS photographic archives, ethnographic research, interviews, and diverse individual and collaborative narrative methods-verbal, non-verbal, and film. Methods draw from socio-cognitive psychology design thinking, and fine art; applied to car storytelling. Course culminates in a final story presentation and showcase. Restricted to co-term and graduate students. Class Size limited to 18.

ME 237: 3D Printing for Non-Technical Innovators (ME 137)

3D Printing is a method of creation that requires only some basic computer skills and a few rules of thumb. This class will allow students to discover for themselves the potential and limitations of 3D Printing through a build intensive design project. This course is an excellent option for anyone who ever wanted to prototype an invention, create a work of art, customize a product or just make something cool -- and yet lacked the skills or a fully equipped workshop. Students may enroll for 1 unit to attend the lectures or 3 units for the complete project course. No prior technical knowledge needed.nNote: Course material is targeted toward non-ME Design and non-PD majors. An application is required for the 3-unit course option. Please complete the online application by Friday, March 25th. The application is available on the course website: web.stanford.edu/class/me137

ME 238: Patent Prosecution

The course follows the patent application process through the important stages: inventor interviews, patentability analysis, drafting claims, drafting a specification, filing a patent application, and responding to an office action. The subject matter and practical instruction relevant to each stage are addressed in the context of current rules and case law. The course includes four written assignments: an invention capture, a claim set, a full patent application, and an Office Action response.Pre-requisites: Law 326 (IP:Patents), Law 409 (Intro IP), ME 208, or MS&E 278.

ME 239: Mechanics of the Cell

Understanding cells as the fundamental building blocks of life. Cell biomechanics: understanding how cell biology and biochemistry influence the mechanical properties of the cell. Cell mechanobiology: understanding how the mechanical environment, load, pressure, stress or strain can influence the cell's shape and integrity, and eventually its biology and biochemistry. Characterizing, modeling, and simulating cell behavior: energy and entropy of biopolymers and biomembranes. Characterizing mechanotransduction.

ME 242B: Mechanical Vibrations (AA 242B)

For M.S.-level graduate students. Covers the vibrations of discrete systems and continuous structures. Introduction to the computational dynamics of linear engineering systems. Review of analytical dynamics of discrete systems; undamped and damped vibrations of N-degree-of-freedom systems; continuous systems; approximation of continuous systems by displacement methods; solution methods for the Eigenvalue problem; direct time-integration methods. Prerequisites: AA 242A or equivalent (recommended but not required); basic knowledge of linear algebra and ODEs; no prior knowledge of structural dynamics is assumed.
Terms: alternate years, given next year | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter (ABCD/NP)

ME 243: Designing Emotion-Reactive Car Interfaces

How to design in car interfaces that take into account the emotional state of the driver in the moment of driving? Participants will be prototyping and testing interfaces for an industry partner. The challenge is to take real time responsive data to infer the emotional state of a driver and to lever these to improve the driving experience. We will cover topics on design methodology, psychology of emotions, and human machine interaction to reflect and work on the emotionally charged car experience of today to imagine the car of tomorrow. Class meetings will include: prototyping, discussions and presentations. Participants will have access to tools, prototyping materials, and a car. Students from all ENG majors but also beyond are encouraged to join. Bring your drivers license, if you have one. May be repeat for credit.

ME 244: Mechanotransduction in Cells and Tissues (BIOE 283, BIOPHYS 244)

Mechanical cues play a critical role in development, normal functioning of cells and tissues, and various diseases. This course will cover what is known about cellular mechanotransduction, or the processes by which living cells sense and respond to physical cues such as physiological forces or mechanical properties of the tissue microenvironment. Experimental techniques and current areas of active investigation will be highlighted.
