Upcoming Special Topic Courses
ME 6194 - Metal Forming Technology
Instructors: Ahmet Tekkaya, Avraham Benatar, Cheena Srinivasan
The one credit-hour course will serve as a brief introduction to the fundamentals and applications of metal forming technology to a wide cross-section of graduate students in the mechanical engineering, industrial engineering, materials science and engineering, and welding engineering programs.
ME 5194 - Product Design Engineering (for non-engineering students only)
Instructor: Annie Abell
Fundamentals of the product development from an engineering perspective. Product constraints, usability, product evolution, portfolio and product architecture, design for manufacturing and assembly.
ME 5194 - Engineering Acoustics
Instructor: Ryan Harne
The aim of this course is to meet the need for a course accessible to the undergraduate population centered on the subject of acoustics. This course, also open to graduate students, will instill principles of engineering noise control, analysis, and design.
ME 5194 - CAD Modeling Techniques for Mechanical Design using CATIA
Instructor: Jami Shah
Computer Aided Design: solid and surface modeling applications using the CATIA CAD package used extensively in the automotive and aerospace industries. Completion of labs and project ensure a working knowledge of CATIA.
ME 7194 - Principles of Finite Element Method
Instructor: Prasad Mokashi
This course is designed primarily to equip a graduate student with the tools necessary to formulate boundary value problems in solid mechanics and heat transfer in order to develop working numerical codes that would, in turn, enable students to conduct graduate research.
ME 8194 - Robust Control of Mechatronic Systems
Instructor: Levent Guvenc
The aim of this course is to introduce graduate students of mechanical engineering to the parameter space approach to robust control using mechatronic systems as example plants to be controlled. The students will also be exposed to the control architectures of input shaping, disturbance observer control and repetitive control.
NE 6194 - Nuclear Materials II: High Temperature Corrosion and Failure Mechanisms
Instructor: Jinsuo Zhang
The purpose of the proposed course is to provide students with information and skills necessary to work on science and engineering of materials and nuclear energy relevant to high temperature corrosion. The course will give the student insight into the fundamentals and applications of high temperature corrosion, corrosion inhibition, control and measurement, stress-corrosion cracking, the effect of non-aqueous coolants, reprocessing issues, materials failure in nuclear environments and failure analysis, and non-destructive evaluation techniques.
