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 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.
Terms: Win | Units: 3

ME 203: Design and Manufacturing

ME203 is intended for any graduate student, from any field of study, who may want the opportunity to design and prototype a physical project of meaning to them. Undergraduate mechanical engineering and product design students should register for ME103. Students are asked to discover a product with meaning to them; develop a point of view which motivates a redesign of that product; manufacture a series of models, multiple candidates, including sketches, product use stories, rapid prototypes, CAD documents, manufacturing test models, and finally a customer ready prototype. Each student will physically create their product using Product Realization Lab resources, and also redesign their product for scaled manufacturing to develop a knowledge of manufacturing processes, design guidelines, materials choices, and the opportunities those processes provide. The student's body of work will be presented in a large public setting, Meet the Makers, through an inspirational portfolio which shares and reflects on their product realization adventure.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr | Units: 4

ME 263: The Chair

Students design and fabricate a highly refined chair. The process is informed and supported by historical reference, anthropometrics, form studies, user testing, material investigations, and workshops in wood steam-bending, plywood forming, metal tube bending, TIG & MIG welding, upholstery & sewing. Prerequisite: ME103/203 or consent of instructor. May be repeated for credit.
Terms: Win | Units: 4 | Repeatable 2 times (up to 8 units total)

ME 318: Computer-Aided Product Creation

Design course focusing on an integrated suite of computer tools: rapid prototyping, solid modeling, computer-aided machining, and computer numerical control manufacturing. Students choose, design, and manufacture individual products, emphasizing individual design process and computer design tools. Structured lab experiences build a basic CAD/CAM/CNC proficiency. Limited enrollment. Prerequisite: ME103 or equivalent and consent of instructor. ME 203 or consent of instructor.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr | Units: 3-4
