ETHICSOC 203R: Ethics in Real Life: How Philosophy Can Make Us Better People

Socrates thought that philosophy was supposed to be practical, but most of the philosophy we do today is anything but. This course will convince you that philosophy actually is useful outside of the classroom--and can have a real impact on your everyday decisions and how to live your life. We'll grapple with tough practical questions such as: 'Is it selfish if I choose to have biological children instead of adopting kids who need homes?' 'Am I behaving badly if I don't wear a helmet when I ride my bike?' 'Should I major in a subject that will help me make a lot of money so I can then donate most of it to overseas aid instead of choosing a major that will make me happy?' Throughout the course, we will discuss philosophical questions about blame, impartiality, the force of different 'shoulds,' and whether there are such things as universal moral rules that apply to everyone.

ME 52SI: Scan, Model, Print! Designing with 3D Technology

Think 3D scanning, modeling, and printing technology is just about plastic widgets? Think again! Immerse yourself in a world of custom prosthetics, manufacturing in space, autonomous cars, and much more. This hands-on engineering design course teaches advanced 3D imaging and computational modeling skills in order to leverage the unique benefits of additive manufacturing to solve complex problems. Students will connect the theory behind these tools to direct experience with the equipment and software. Short assignments at the start of the quarter will build students' core competencies and prepare them for a team-based, open-ended project. Class time will be a mixture of lecture, lab, guest speakers, and field trips. Recommended: basic CAD, fabrication, and programming experience (e.g. ME103D, 203, CS106A or equivalents).

ME 103D: Engineering Drawing and Design

Designed to accompany 203. The fundamentals of engineering drawing including orthographic projection, dimensioning, sectioning, exploded and auxiliary views, assembly drawings, and SolidWorks. Homework drawings are of parts fabricated by the student in the lab. Assignments in 203 supported by material in 103D and sequenced on the assumption that the student is enrolled in both courses simultaneously.

Films, guest lecturers, field trips. Each student designs and fabricates a custom bicycle frame. This course is now a two part course series ME204A&B. Limited enrollment. Prerequisite: 203 or equivalent.
Terms: Win | Units: 1

ME 204B: Bicycle Design and Frame-Building

The engineering and artistic execution of designing and building a bicycle frame. The fundamentals of bicycle dynamics, handling, and sizing. Manufacturing processes. Films, guest lecturers, field trips. Each student designs a custom bicycle frame that they continue from ME204A in winter quarter. Limited enrollment, admission by consent of instructors. Attendance at first lecture is required. Both ME204A and ME204B must be taken. Prerequisite: 203 or equivalent.

ME 219: The Magic of Materials and Manufacturing

Intended for design-oriented students who anticipate imagining and then creating new products with a focus on materiality and brand or design and business. Assumes basic knowledge of materials and manufacturing processes which results from taking ENGR 50, ME 203, or equivalent course/life experience. Goal is to acquire professional foundation information about materials and materiality from a product design point-of-view, manufacturing processes and business systems inside a factory, and story-telling by book authorship, essay writing, and multimedia presentation. Goal is for students to exhibit a deep and life-long love of materials and manufacturing in order to make great products and tell a good story about each one.

ME 225: Mystery of Manufacturing

Mystery of Manufacturing is intended for design- and engineering-oriented students who anticipate or have an interest in launching products. Where the cousin of this class, ME219, is an overview of fabrication and factory systems, this course will look at manufacturing systems more holistically: what does it take to get a product from your idea into peoples' hands? We'll look at factors that drive location, distribution, and supply chain decisions, and we'll look closely at the inner workings of factories. nnnThis course assumes basic knowledge of materials and manufacturing processes resulting from ENGR 50, ME 203, ME 219 or equivalent course/life experience. The goal is to acquire a professional foundation in factory manufacturing systems and the business of manufacturing through story-telling, essay writing, and multimedia presentation. We hope students will exhibit a deep and life-long love of the complexity and flexibility of manufacturing systems in order to launch great products into the world.
