My Courses

Computer Programming and Applications

Computer Programming and Applications

This course introduces students on how to use different computer software packages to solve problems in the mechanical engineering related fields. Topics include numerical methods (Roots and optimization, linear systems, curve fitting, integration and differentiation and differential equations) and applications of numerical methods in machine design, mechanism design, and robotic design and programming. A variety of computer software packages will be used depending on applications.

MECH 2410 – Machine Design

MECH 2410 – Machine Design

This course teaches students on how to design functional mechanical components and systems using engineering knowledge, communication skills, and design principles they learned from the Mathematics, Physics, Communication and library art courses, Engineering Statics, Strength of Materials, Materials Sciences, Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) software packages. Students are required to complete a multidisciplinary hands-on design project utilizing concurrent engineering approach incorporating mechanical and electronic and software design into their design work.

MECH 3600 Mechanical Measurement and Instrumentation

MECH 3600 Mechanical Measurement and Instrumentation

This course teaches techniques, equipment, and measurement procedures used by mechanical engineers. Students will perform test, collect data from data acquisition systems, and apply statistic analysis to experimental data. Common sensors such as temperature sensor, sonar sensor, IR sensor, strain gauge/load cell will be used.

The Solar Decathlon at City Tech This website is devoted to people in the City Tech community wanting to develop the Solar Decathlon entry in 2015.

Annual Experential Learning Symposium

Annual Experential Learning Symposium

Thu May 10, 2018, 12-4 pm Voorhees Theater. Organized by the students, for the students, to showcase student research and projects.

Living Lab Fourth Year Fellows

Living Lab Fourth Year Fellows

This is a collaborative space for use by the Fourth Year Faculty Fellow participants in the General Education Seminar, part of City Tech’s Title V grant-funded initiative A Living Laboratory. This seminar will concentrate particularly on the fourth year of the student experience at our college, a critical year for our students as their participation in capstone courses, internships and global learning prepares them to engage in the work force at a greater capacity and prepare for graduate education.

My Clubs

Mechanical Club (ASME Student Chapter)

Mechanical Club (ASME Student Chapter)

Mechanical Engineering Club serves as a junior chapter of American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) in City Tech. The club promotes hands-on learning through multidisciplinary design activities and exposing students to the latest emerging technology.

Mechatronics Club

Mechatronics Club

Platform for students from different engineering departments to work on hands-on mechatronics projects.
