Extended Description: 

This is a course on modeling, design, integration and best practices for use of machine elements such as bearings, springs, gears, cams and mechanisms. Modeling and analysis of these elements is based upon extensive application of physics, mathematics and core mechanical engineering principles (solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, manufacturing, estimation, computer simulation, etc.). These principles are reinforced via a design project wherein students model, design, fabricate and characterize a mechanical system that is relevant to a real world application. Students master the materials via problems sets that are directly related to, and coordinated with, the deliverables of their project. Student assessment is based upon mastery of the course materials and the student's ability to synthesize, model and fabricate a mechanical device subject to engineering constraints (e.g. cost and time/schedule).

Learning Outcomes: 

Upon succesful completion of this course, a student will be able to
1. understand the role of concepts, principles, design process, best practices, mathematics, physics, and engineering modeling within mechanical design;
2. apply the concepts, principles, design process, best practices, mathematics, physics, and engineering modeling to realize a complex and high quality mechanical design.
