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 403 - Kinematics of Machinery

This is an introduction to kinematics, the study of the motion of machinery without regard to forces. Students perform both kinematic analysis and kinematic design of planar and spatial mechanisms, cams, and gear trains. Computer programming is used for iterative methods in both analysis and design. A design project is assigned to explore a particular kinematics problem in detail.
