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 526 - Turbomachinery

Introduces the theory and issues related to the design of axial and radial flow turbines, compressors and pumps. Euler's equation and vector diagrams are used to evaluate energy transfer and efficiency. Students enrolled in ME 526 must complete a design project including complexities not covered in ME 426. Students may not receive credit for both ME 426 and ME 526
