Course Descriptions

The mechanical engineering curriculum is designed to prepare students for productive careers in industry, government, education and private consulting as well as for graduate study. Thus, it is based on the fundamental principles of science and engineering. These provide a strong foundation that enables students to apply what they have learned to the complex technological problems of today and to teach themselves the new technologies of tomorrow.

ME 304 - Introduction to the Design of Mechanisms

  • Credit Hours: 4R-0L-4C
  • Term Available: W
  • Graduate Studies Eligible: No
  • Prerequisites: ME 123 or ENGD 120 or CSSE 120 or BE 100
  • Corequisites: None

This course will cover a set of computational tools to design and analyze mechanisms to achieve specific goals. The specific focus of this course is to study kinematics (study of motion without regards to forces) of a mechanism. Students learn how to model and solve for the position, velocity, acceleration of linkages using vectors. They also study the kinematics of gear trains and specifically, planetary gear trains.
