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.

AI and Automation Lab & Club – Undergraduate Research Initiative (URI) for AI, Robotics, and Aut

AI and Automation Lab & Club – Undergraduate Research Initiative (URI) for AI, Robotics, and Aut

A $540,000 Grant from the Department of Defense (DoD) to establish an Undergraduate Research Initiative (URI), a research and education hub that will further enhance the college’s very successful robotics program, initiated with an NSF ATE grant in 2010. This will enable us to create new hands-on research activities and enhance experience-based learning approaches in our curriculum in order to address the DoD’s needs for graduates in STEM fields with multidisciplinary engineering knowledge armed with AI, robotics, and automation programming skills.
