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 518 - Advanced Kinematics

Considers the analysis, design, and simulation of planar and spatial mechanisms. The mechanisms examined are parallel manipulators, serial manipulators, and compliant mechanisms. These mechanisms are analyzed for position, velocity, acceleration, and workspace. The techniques used for the analysis include vector approaches, homogeneous transformations, and dual number techniques.
