ENG120, “Engineering Graphics” - Introduce principles of engineering graphics and the computer aided solid modeling tool, Solidworks

ENG126, “Mechanics of Solids” - Introduce the basics of the solid mechanics including statics, behavior of solid materials, especially their motion and deformation under the action of forces.

ME491, “Manufacturing Processes and Systems- This course introduces manufacturing processes including traditional manufacturing processes, latest additive manufacturing technologies, and more. For each manufacturing process, machines and process parameters will be identified for quality improvement and cost reduction. Material behavior and process physics will be discussed to further understand the principles of the process. This course also covers the systems of manufacturing including automation technologies, integrated manufacturing systems, and manufacturing support systems.

ME554, “Introduction to CAD- Introduce optimization methodology as a valuable decision support tool, help develop skills in building and solving optimization models for variety of engineering decision problems, and expose key mathematical concepts underlying various optimization models and algorithms

ME564, “Principle of Optimum Design and Manufacture” - Introduce fundamentals of CAD and its application in design and manufacturing practices. Students will learn theories and practices related to geometric modeling, mechanical assembly, parametric design, freeform surface modeling, and computer aided simulation for the product design. Students will learn the state of art CAD software, Creo Parametric through tutorials and exercises.

ME566, “Design for Manufacturability” - Design for Manufacturability addresses methodologies and tools to define product development phases and experience working in teams to design high-quality competitive products. Primary goals are to improve the ability to reason about design, material and process alternatives and apply modeling techniques appropriate for different development phases

ME652, “Advanced Additive Manufacturing” - Introduce the basics of the solid mechanics including statics, behavior of solid materials, especially their motion and deformation under the action of forces.

ME653, “Design for Additive Manufacturing” - Design for additive manufacturing course teaches how best to design products for additive manufacturing from variety of perspectives including surface texture and quality improvements of 3d printed parts, design rules for additive manufacturing, part build orientation, integrated design and part consolidation, and part geometry and topology optimization.
