MENG 583/ EM 589 Engineering Mechanics of Composite Structures
This course addresses issues related to composite structures, their macro-mechanics to structural design and development. Emphasis is given to development of analytical procedures for determining material properties and prediction of structural behavior. Development of effective experimental methods is also looked into for material characterization, stress analysis, and failure analysis using Maximum Stress criterion and the Tsai-Wu criterion.
MENG 451 : Design of Machine Elements (a capstone class in the Solid Mechanics stream)
The purpose of this class is to integrate course material learnt in Statics (ES 201), Mechanics of Materials (ES 302), Materials Engineering (MATE 202), and Advanced Mechanics of Materials (MENG 304). In addition, there are concepts of “Mathematical Statistics” that needs to be understood before one can design of machine elements properly. Course contents are delivered in a “System’s Approach” through the design of a “Gear Box”.
ES 316 (Engineering Economics)
The course starts with an introduction of Professional ethics. Followed by topics as: Economic decision‐making for engineering alternatives, Use of simple and compound interest calculations to compare the relative economy of investments and procedures. Application of economic principles such as return on investment, Replacement analysis, Depreciation, Uncertainty, Income Tax, and Economic Analysis of Public Sector are also covered in detail.
