This course is a study of advanced concepts in designing machine elements for static and dynamic applications. Major topics include structural steel selection and welded structure design, lubricants and the viscosity/temperature relationship, stress analysis and failure theories of machine elements, reliability engineering including Weibull analysis, planetary gear set design, and hydraulic system design including accumulators, pumps, and circuit design.

MECH 4013 - Machine Design II

Credits: 
3
Level: 
Lower
Prerequisites: 

MECH 3223 with D or better or MECH 3224 with D or better

Description: 

This course will emphasize the application of mechanical design for industrial machinery. The lecture material for this course will be enhanced through a laboratory experience using design techniques that include the creation of working industrial drawings, parametrically driven spreadsheet solutions of design problems, and component sizing and dimension determinations. This course will include the study of linear motion devices, fluid power, rigid coupling design, and flywheels.

MECH 4003 - Solid Modeling

Credits: 
3
Level: 
Lower
Prerequisites: 

MECH 1603 with D or better or (MECH 1012 with D or better and  MECH 1022 with D or better)

Description: 

This course is an introduction to 3D solid modeling techniques utilizing feature-based, constraint-based parametric design. This course encourages the student to visualize parts in the 3D world and have a “design intent” plan for each part in which they will design. This will help in the arrangement of assemblies, parts, features, and dimensions to meet design requirements.

MECH 1103 - Air Conditioning Principles

Level: 
Lower
Credits: 
3
Description: 

Fundamental principles of air conditioning and air conditioning systems. Presentation of psychometric principles and processes, equipment selection, heating and cooling load calculations and heating system principles including forced warm air, hot water, electric and steam systems and system components. Principles and practices of heating, air conditioning system design, operation and control.

MECH 3003 - Machine Design I

Credits: 
3
Level: 
Lower
Prerequisites: 

MECH 1012 with D or better and MECH 1022 with D or better

Corequisite: MECH 2603

Description: 

This course will emphasize the application of mechanical design for industrial machinery. The lecture material for this course will be enhanced through a laboratory experience using design techniques that include the creation of working industrial drawings, parametrically driven spreadsheet solutions of design problems, component sizing and dimension determinations. The course will include the study of mechanical power systems such as gear trains, belt and chain drives, linkages, clutch-coupling brake components, torque transmission devices, shaft and component design calculations.

MECH 1022 - CAD II

Credits: 
2
Level: 
Lower
Prerequisites: 

MECH 1012 with D or better or MECH 1603 with D or better

Description: 

This course is a continuation to the fundamental concepts of 2D Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) that is discussed in MECH 1012, CAD I. Students will learn how to create working industrial detail and assembly drawings of mechanical components that can be used for fabrication. This course will also use industrial standards such as ASME/ANSI Y14.5M for Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing to facilitate the communication of geometry requirements for associated features on detail components and assemblies.

MECH 1012 - CAD I

Level: 
Lower
Credits: 
2
Description: 

This is an introductory 2D Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) class where students will learn visualization, sketching, and geometric construction of basic mechanical components. This course will illustrate fundamental drafting techniques that implement graphical communication through the use of the Alphabet of Lines, Orthographic Projection, and Section Views. Using CAD, students will learn to create working industrial drawings that adhere to industrial standards.

MECH 1011 - Intro to Mechanical Tech Lab

Level: 
Lower
Credits: 
1
Description: 

This lab introduces first year students to a skill set that is required of all students in the Mechanical Engineering Technology Departments. Through both group and individual assignments, students will produce professional process documentation, organized solutions to basic engineering problems, engineering diagrams, and engineering presentations. The lab will require the use of Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Visio.

MECH 8143 - Six-Sigma, Techniques & Strate

Credits: 
3
Level: 
Upper
Prerequisites: 

MATH 2124 with D or better and MECH 5643 with D or better and MECH 6243 with D or better and MECH 7243 with D or better

Description: 

Six-Sigma is a quality improvement methodology structured to reduce product or service failure rates to a negligible level (roughly 3.4 failures per million opportunities). The Six-Sigma process encompasses all aspects of a business, including management, service delivery, design, production and customer satisfaction. This course explores the principles and practices of Six-Sigma in manufacturing oriented industries. Students will be introduced to the key concepts of Six-Sigma to better prepare them to support a company's continuous improvement efforts.

MECH 7143 - Fundamentals of Machine Elements

Credits: 
3
Level: 
Upper
Prerequisites: 

MECH 2603 with D or better

Description: 

This course is designed to provide a general knowledge of the various components and elements of devices utilized in a manufacturing process system design. The emphasis is on use, selection and specification of the components, not on the aspects of individual mechanical design principles best left to the mechanical engineers and designers. The students will be able to select and specify individual "machine elements" or incorporate them into a system.
