courses taught

  • GEEN 1400 - Engineering Projects
    Primary Instructor - Spring 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 3012 - Thermodynamics
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2021
    Explores fundamental concepts and basic theory, including first and second laws of thermodynamics, properties, states, thermodynamic functions and cycles. Same as GEEN 3852.
  • MCEN 3021 - Fluid Mechanics
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2022 / Summer 2022 / Fall 2022 / Spring 2023 / Fall 2023 / Spring 2024
    Examines fundamentals of fluid flow with application to engineering problems. Topics covered include fluid statics and kinematics, Bernoulli equations, laminar and turbulent viscous boundary layers, laminar and turbulent pipe flow, and conservation equations for mass, momentum and energy. Same as CHEN 3200 and CVEN 3313.
  • MCEN 3022 - Heat Transfer
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2023
    Studies fundamentals of heat transfer by conduction, convection, and radiation. Emphasizes problem formulation and selection of appropriate solution techniques. Provides applications to modern engineering systems, which may include energy, biological, environmental, and materials engineering problems.
  • MCEN 3030 - Computational Methods
    Primary Instructor - Summer 2023 / Spring 2024
    Studies fundamental numerical techniques for the solution of commonly encountered engineering problems. Includes methods for linear and nonlinear algebraic equations, data analysis, numerical differentiation and integration, ordinary and partial differential equations.
  • MCEN 5021 - Introduction to Fluid Dynamics
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2021 / Fall 2022 / Fall 2023
    Focuses on physical properties of gases and liquids, and kinematics of flow fields. Analyzes stress; viscous, heat-conducting Newtonian fluids; and capillary effects and surface-tension-driven flow. Other topics include vorticity and circulation, ideal fluid flow theory in two and three dimensions, Schwartz-Christoffel transformations, free streamline theory, and internal and free-surface waves.
  • MCEN 5022 - Classical Thermodynamics
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2022
    First and second laws of thermodynamics. Entropy and availability. Cycle analysis. Thermodynamic properties of pure substances and mixtures. Property relations. Chemical reactions and chemical availability. Energy systems analysis.
  • MCEN 5042 - Heat Transfer
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2023
    Studies development of equations governing transport of heat by conduction, convection, and radiation, and their solution. Includes analytical and numerical solution of initial and boundary value problems representative of heat conduction in solids. Describes heat transfer in free and forced convection, including laminar and turbulent flow. Also involves radiation properties of solids, liquids, and gases and transport of heat by radiation.
  • MCEN 5930 - Professional Internship
    Primary Instructor - Summer 2023
    This class provides a structure for Mechanical Engineering graduate students to receive academic credit for internships with industry partners that have an academic component to them suitable for graduate-level work. Participation in the program will consist of an internship agreement between a student and an industry partner who will employ the student in a role that supports the academic goals of the internship. Instructor participation will include facilitation of mid-term and final assessments of student performance as well as support for any academic-related issues that may arise during the internship period. May be taken during any term following initial enrollment and participation in ME graduate programs. Department permission required to enroll.
