  • MCEN 2000 - Mechanical Engineering as a Profession
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Fall 2019
    Provides an introduction to the profession of mechanical engineering Specific topics addressed include career opportunities in mechanical engineering, internship search skills, expectations for professional behavior in the classroom and in industry, and current events/ethics topics relevant to the field. Course format may include additional evening/weekend activities.
  • MCEN 3032 - Thermodynamics 2
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Spring 2019
    Offers advanced topics and applications for thermal system design and analysis. Topics include thermodynamics of state, entropy, thermodynamic cycles and reacting and nonreacting mixtures. Provides application to power generation, refrigeration and HVAC with conventional and advanced technologies. Most assignments are design oriented.
  • MCEN 4026 - Manufacturing Processes and Systems
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Fall 2019
    Examines manufacturing processes for metals, polymers, and composites as well as manufacturing systems that integrate these processes. Lecture topics include forming, machining, joining, assembling, process integration, computer-aided manufacturing, and manufacturing system engineering.
  • MCEN 4045 - Mechanical Engineering Design Project 1
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Fall 2019
    First part of a two-course capstone design experience in mechanical engineering. Covers problem definition, determining design requirements, alternative design concepts, engineering analysis, proof-of-concept prototype and CAD drawings. Students make several oral design reviews, a final design presentation, and prepare a written report. GEEN-BS and GEEN-BSGE students are not required to complete MCEN 2000, MCEN 3022, MCEN 3030 or MCEN 4026 but have additional prerequisites of GEEN 1400, 2400 and 3400.
  • MCEN 4085 - Mechanical Engineering Design Project 2
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Spring 2019
    Second part of a two-course capstone design experience in mechanical engineering. Includes refinement of prototype, design optimization, fabrication, testing, and evaluation. Students orally present the final design and prepare a written report and operation manual for the product. GEEN-BS and GEEN-BSEPL students are not required to complete MCEN 4026.
  • MCEN 4228 - Special Topics in Mechanical Engineering
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Fall 2018 / Spring 2019
    Subject matter to be selected from topics of current interest. May be repeated up to 15 credit hours. Same as MCEN 5228.
