GEEN 1400 - Engineering Projects
Spring 2019 / Spring 2020 / Spring 2021 / Spring 2022 / Fall 2022
First-year students solve real engineering design problems in interdisciplinary teams. Design projects vary by section. Curriculum focuses on iterative design process, teamwork and team dynamics, supporting design with testing and analysis, and technical writing. Completed projects are exhibited at an end-of-semester design expo. Students responsible for contributing towards their design project budget and poster costs, and purchasing safety glasses (approximately $75).
MCEN 1024 - Chemistry for Energy and Materials Science
Spring 2022 / Spring 2023
Covers the basic physical and chemical fundamentals underlying the disciplines of energy and materials, with a focus on topics relevant to your mechanical engineering education. These fundamentals include atomic structure, stoichiometry, the periodic table, chemical bonding, states of matter, thermochemistry and chemical reactions. Recommended prerequisite: one year of high school chemistry. Degree credit not granted for this course and CHEN 1201, CHEN 1211, or CHEM 1113.
MCEN 3047 - Data Analysis and Experimental Methods
Spring 2020 / Spring 2021
Learn to plan and carry out experiments and analyze the results. Topics covered include measurement fundamentals, design of experiments, elementary statistics and uncertainty analysis. Topics in statistics include probability, error propagation, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, linear regression, one- and two-factor ANOVA and time series analysis. Formerly MCEN 3037. Same as GEEN 3853.
