ME 1: Introduction to Mechanical Engineering

Introduction to engineering analysis using the principles of engineering solid mechanics. Builds on the math and physical reasoning concepts in Physics 41 to develop skills in evaluation of engineered systems across a variety of fields. Foundational ideas for more advanced solid mechanics courses such as ME80 or CEE101A. Interactive lecture sessions focused on mathematical application of key concepts, with weekly complementary lab session on testing and designing systems that embody these concepts. Limited enrollment, subject to instructor approval. Pre-requisite: Physics 41.
Terms: Aut, Win | 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 | Units: 3 | UG Reqs: WAY-AQR, WAY-SMA

ME 70: Introductory Fluids Engineering

Elements of fluid mechanics as applied to engineering problems. Equations of motion for incompressible flow. Hydrostatics. Control volume laws for mass, momentum, and energy. Bernoulli equation. Differential equations of fluid flow. Euler equations. Dimensional analysis and similarity. Internal flows. Introductory external boundary layer flows. Introductory lift and drag. ENGR14 and ME30 required.

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

ME 101: Visual Thinking

ME101 is at the foundation class for all designers and creative people at Stanford. It teaches you how to access your creativity through a series of projects, all of which have been redesigned so that they can be accomplished in an online learning environment. 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 you 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. Due to COVID-19 restrictions during AY20-21, in-person use of the Product Realization Lab may be limited or not permitted. Lab kits will be sent to enrolled students to support exploration of prototyping and mechanical design techniques that will be practiced during synchronous lectures and coaching sessions. Project documentation, reflection, and 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.

ME 103: Product Realization: Design and Making

ME103 will be taught entirely on line. While this has the obvious disadvantage of no physical PR access, we experimented with a recreated version of the course this past spring quarter. On line ME103 delivered excellent educational value. Student response was very positive. The course was a mix of published weekly recorded lectures, small group coaching sessions, a newly developed library of "Technical Notes", and kits of tools and materials given to each student for the purpose of rapid prototyping. We increased emphasis on CAD with good support for Fusion 360 as well as Solid Works. We increased emphasis on manufacturing processes including a redesign of projects assuming scaled manufacturing.Dave Beach, dbeach@stanford.edu

ME 104: Mechanical Systems Design

How to design mechanical systems through iterative application of intuition, brainstorming, analysis, computation and prototype testing. Design of custom mechanical components, selection of common machine elements, and selection of electric motors and transmission elements to meet performance, efficiency and reliability goals. Emphasis on high-performance systems. Independent and team-based design projects. Prerequisites: PHYSICS 41; ENGR 14; ME 80; ME 102; ME 103 or 203. Must have PRL pass. Must attend lecture. Recommended: ENGR 15; CS 106A; ME 128 or ME 318. ME104: We are excited about our new plan for ME 104, and we think students will have a great experience even under these conditions. We'll be changing up the lecture elements of the course, switching to asynchronous videos and small synchronous coaching groups. We *will* have hands-on projects, switching from two larger projects with on-campus fabrication to several smaller projects built at home using the personal 3D printers students in these courses will receive and an ME104-specific kit we'll send out. Some of these changes might even improve the course over the long run . We hope students will come build with us! It should be fun. Steve Collins, stevecollins@stanford.edu

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.
