MFET-797
3 Credits
This course provides the MMSI graduate students an opportunity to complete their degree requirements by addressing a practical real-world challenge using the knowledge and skills acquired throughout their studies. This course is not only the culmination of a student's course work but also an indicator of the student's ability to use diverse knowledge to provide a tangible solution to a problem. The capstone project topic can be in the areas of product development, manufacturing automation, management system, quality management or electronics packaging. The course requires a comprehensive project report and a final presentation.
MFET-790
3 Credits
The MMSI thesis is based on thorough literature review and experimental substantiation of a problem, by the candidate, in an appropriate topic. A written proposal has to be defended and authorized by the faculty adviser/committee. The proposal defense is followed by experimental work, a formal written thesis, and oral presentation of findings. The candidate should have completed the requisite courses for the program before enrolling for the thesis.
MCET-221
4 Credits
This course provides an introduction to the analysis and design of structures and machines. Students learn to calculate stresses and deflections in axially loaded members, beams, shafts, and columns. Topics include statically indeterminate problems, thermal stress, stress concentration, combined stress by superposition, and Mohr’s Circle. Students also gain experience with laboratory equipment, experimental methods, team work, project management, and communications as they complete laboratory and project assignments.
MCET-450
3 Credits
In this course students will investigate how mechanical parts fail through static, fatigue, and surface modes. Students will analyze the stresses, apply failure theories, and design mechanical components to last. The fatigue characteristics for given metal samples will be investigated through experimentation, analysis, and deduction of experimental results. The computer is used extensively in analysis, FEA, and design process.
MCET-569
3 Credits
This course expands students’ machine design capabilities to include the effects of vibration. The basic concepts of vibration and noise are covered. Emphasis is placed on machinery design to minimize vibration and the use of vibration and noise for machinery condition monitoring. Environmental tests for vibration, shock, and noise are performed. Measurement tools and computer analysis tools are utilized.
MCET-590
3 Credits
Students learn to solve kinematic and dynamic analysis problems for planar mechanisms with applications ranging from manufacturing equipment to consumer products and the automotive field. Both analytical and computer simulation methods are used.
