MCEN 1025 - Computer-Aided Design and Fabrication
Introduces CAD software and relevant concepts, including orthographic projection, sections, engineering drawing, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, and an introduction to manufacturing methods. Final design project involves rapid prototyping.
MCEN 4045 - Mechanical Engineering Design Project 1
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
Spring 2018 / Spring 2019 / Spring 2020
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 5045 - Design for Manufacturability
Spring 2018 / Spring 2019 / Fall 2019 / Spring 2020
Topics include general design guidelines for manufacturability; aspects of manufacturing processes that affect design decisions; design rules to maximize manufacturability; economic considerations; value engineering and design for assembly. Presents case studies of successful products exhibiting DFMA principles. Priority enrollment for students admitted to the MS or BS/MS design track. Prerequisite of MCEN 4026 required for undergraduate students.
