MAYMESTER: INTRO TO ENGINEERING DESIGN AND GRAPHICS

 

ME 302 is a multi-faceted course that covers the history of design while preparing a student for the modern design process in the dynamic international setting of Dublin, Ireland. The course emphasizes the need for freehand sketching to develop design concepts quickly and to communicate said information in styles consistent to the ANSI Standard to engineering, management and manufacturing. SolidWorks 2019 is provided. Students will learn modeling techniques, geometric construction, mass properties reports and finite element analysis techniques for design and analysis. A team oriented reverse engineering project will be used to introduce the modern design process in the course. The course includes a variety of field trips to locations of cultural and professional interest to enhance the course. ME 302 meets a major requirement for aerospace, civil, and mechanical engineering majors.
