DESIGN 141: Product Design Methods

This course will introduce the basic concepts of human factors and demonstrate the importance of understanding and considering human capabilities and limits in product and system design. This will include an overview of both cognitive and physical human characteristics, methods to analyze human factors constraints, and design methods for prototyping and evaluating the usability of physical products and systems. In this course individual- and team-based design projects are used to emphasize the integration between human factors analysis and evaluation, authoring design requirements and translating these to both physical products and systems. Prerequisites: DESIGN 11 (formerly ME101), and DESIGN 121 (formerly ME115A). Strongly recommended: DESIGN 172 (formerly ME110), ME102, Psych 1. This class was formerly listed as ME 115B. It is a required class for undergrad design majors. This class is for design students only.

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, Sum | Units: 3

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.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr | Units: 4

ME 127: Design for Additive Manufacturing

Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) combines the fields of Design for Manufacturability (DfM) and Additive Manufacturing (AM). ME127 will introduce the capabilities and limitations of various AM technologies and apply the principles of DfM in order to design models fit for printing. Students will use Computer Aided Design (CAD) software to create and analyze models and then print them using machines and resources in the Product Realization Lab. Topics include: design for rapid prototyping, material selection, post-processing and finishing, CAD simulation, algorithmic modeling, additive tooling and fixtures, and additive manufacturing at scale. Prerequisite: ME102 and ME80, or consent of instructor.
Terms: Win, Spr | Units: 3

ME 129: Manufacturing Processes and Design

ME129 is designed for Juniors in Mechanical Engineering who have elected the Product Realization concentration. Students will develop professional level knowledge and experience with materials and manufacturing processes. Activities will include lectures, site visits to local manufacturing organizations, and recorded site visits to global manufacturing organizations. Assignments will include essays and discussions based on site visits, materials exploration including hands-on activities in the Product Realization Lab (PRL), and product tear downs supported by PRL resources. The environmental sustainability consequences of materials and transformation process choices will be a unifying thread running throughout the course. Prerequisites: ME102 and ME103.
