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 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.

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 203: Design and Manufacturing

ME203 is intended for any graduate students who may want the opportunity to design and prototype a project of meaning to them. Undergraduate mechanical engineering and product design students should register for ME103.nnnME 203 will be taught on line through ZOOM and Canvas resources. Depending on evolving COVID-19 regulations, students may enjoy limited access to Product Realization Laboratory structured laboratory activities. The course will be organized in two chapters over 10 weeks. Chapter One, DESIGN, will commence with brainstorming, and conclude with a full product design presentation for the creation of a single unit including CAD models, Bill of Materials, and Operations Sequence. Chapter Two, MANUFACURING will commence with redesign for large scale manufacturing and end with a Manufacturing Design Plan including a Design for Manufacturability, a Bill of Materials, a recommendation for Manufacturing Processes, and a Unit Marginal Manufacturing Cost Estimate.

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. Due to COVID-19 restrictions during AY20-21, in-person use of the Product Realization Lab may be limited or not permitted. In this case class will consist of asynchronous lectures and online coaching meetings and office hours. Pre-req: ME 203 Design and Manufacturing. May be repeat 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. Due to COVID-19 restrictions during AY20-21, in-person use of the Product Realization Lab may be limited or not permitted. In this case class will consist of asynchronous lectures and online coaching meetings and office hours. Limited enrollment. Prerequisite: ME103 or equivalent and consent of instructor. Prerequisite: ME 203 or consent of instructor.
