M E 440W Mechanical Systems Design Project (3)
Students develop and practice skills and techniques for managing and executing engineering design projects. These skills are applied to an industry-sponsored project. Project teams perform all facets of product and process design. This includes problem identification, planning of the project, formulation of design specifications, the development and evaluation of alternative conceptual designs, the development of detailed designs, the specification of manufacturing processes, prototyping of manufacturing processes and parts, and analysis and documentation of results. Students will visit industrial sites to gain an understanding of existing processes and problems and to assess the customer's needs. Students will present their design process and final design in several formats: oral presentations, poster presentations, web pages, and reports.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
