MCET-320
3 Credits
Principles of engineering dynamics and the solution of practical engineering problems using engineering dynamics are studied. The dynamic analysis of particles and rigid bodies are performed using the three fundamental analytical methods. These include Force-Acceleration, Work-Energy, and Impulse-Momentum methods. An emphasis is placed on the application of these methods to the solution of real engineering problems. In addition, this course introduces the study of vibration in a mass, spring, and damper system. Students will evaluate real problems experimentally, analytically and through computer simulation.
MCET-220
3 Credits
This course provides an introduction to the analysis and design of structures and machines. Students learn to calculate unknown forces using the concept of equilibrium and free body diagrams and to calculate simple stresses and deflections for axially loaded members. Topics include forces, moments, free body diagrams, equilibrium, friction, stress, strain, and deflection. Examples are drawn from mechanical, manufacturing, and civil engineering technology.
EMET-419
3 Credits
This is a course in development, documentation, and analysis of experiments needed to address open-ended technical problems. As the integrating experience for the electrical mechanical engineering technology program experiments will tightly integrate electrical and mechanical aspects of the problem statement and the problem solution as well as apply statistical methods. Non-technical skills of research, project planning, and process capability assessment are required. Experimental techniques, instrumentation and the preparation of instructions and reports are covered in this course in a project based learning environment. Students will work in groups and independently to determine and document the experimental procedures with formal technical reports along with an oral presentation.
