Currently Teaching

MCET-101
3 Credits
Students will apply engineering problem solving methods used in industry to complete projects involving engineering topics such as mechanics, circuits, robotics, and thermodynamics. Software tools are used to model their designs, perform design calculations, collect and analyze data. Finally, students will present their work professionally using both written and oral communication software. The goal of the class is to have students become familiar with the many aspects of mechanical engineering through hands on, experiential learning and prepares them to work professionally and effectively in a team setting both in college and in industry.
MCET-111
1 Credits
This lab class accompanies MCET-110 Foundations of Materials. An emphasis is placed on determining material, primarily metals, properties though experimentation and references, and analyzing why a particular material was selected for an application based on the materials properties. Differentiation of materials families is made based on properties. A variety of discovery activities are used to explore the world of metals, including labs of various types, materials selection software, and internet resources.
MCET-210
2 Credits
This course will cover the process of selecting a best material for a given design application with a focus on polymeric materials. To support this process material families, strengthening mechanisms, and degradation mechanisms and prevention will be studied. The materials selection process will include economic, ecological, and ethical considerations. An emphasis is placed on the interrelationship of structure, process, and properties. This class expands upon concepts presented in MCET-110.
MCET-211
1 Credits
This course will consist of laboratory experiences which focus on property characterization of the properties of polymeric materials.
MCET-583
3 Credits
The study of design guidelines for plastic products based on the interrelationships between design, the material selected, the manufacturing process selected, and the tooling to be used. Students may not take and receive credit for this course if they have already taken MCET-683.
MCET-683
3 Credits
The study of design guidelines for plastic products based on the interrelationships between design, the material selected, the manufacturing process selected, and the tooling to be used. Students will research the feasibility of using polymeric materials to design a part or assembly not traditionally manufactured using plastics. Students may receive credit for only one course: MCET-583 or MCET-683
