Mechanical Engineering Civilization, as we know it today, depends on the intelligent and humane use of our energy resources and machines. Because of the broad engineering training in this program, graduates may find employment in many industries, including companies or government agencies associated with aerospace, automotive, energy, petroleum, manufacturing, biomedical engineering, and research.
Heavy Duty Vehicle Emissions. Funded research allows the Department to maintain up-to-date facilities that include modern instrumentation and computing and lab equipment, including simulation and computer-controlled data acquisition systems. Areas of research[ edit ] Mechanical engineers are constantly pushing the boundaries of what is physically possible in order to produce safer, cheaper, and more efficient machines and mechanical systems.
Research facilities include a state-of-the-art engine research laboratory, three transportable emissions research laboratories, thermal analyzers, recording thermocouple data-acquisition systems, high-altitude simulation chamber for ablation and wear studies, a fluidized bed combustion laboratory, an electrically-heated, natural convection water facility, Schlieren systems for flows with varying density, and a water reservoir for thermal stratification studies.
This course is intended to insure that graduate assistants are adequately prepared and supervised when they are given college teaching responsibility.
State feedback through eigenstructure assignment; Observers and Kalman filters; multiple-model adaptive estimation and control; parameter estimation; direct and indirect model-reference adaptive-control algorithms; introduction to neural networks. Drafting is used in nearly every subdiscipline of mechanical engineering, and by many other branches of engineering and architecture.
Qualifier Examination within the first two semesters in the program. Supervised practice in college teaching of Benjamin M. Doctor of Philosophy, Aerospace Engineering Ph.
Notable employers of our graduates: Engineering Design Optimization and computer-aided design, feasibility studies of kinematic mechanisms, kinematics of rolling element-bearing geometries, mechanical control systems, experimental stress analysis, failure analysis, development of biologically inspired methodologies.
The mechanical engineer needs to acquire particular skills and knowledge. Some classes are taught by adjunct faculty from local industries, giving students the opportunity to interact with engineering professionals engaged in relevant engineering practice.
Fluids mechanics and Aerodynamics A variety of courses and facilities support graduate research in aerodynamics and fluid mechanics. Dynamics includes kinematics about movement, velocity, and acceleration and kinetics about forces and resulting accelerations.
These electives include three courses in energy conversion, two in renewable energy solar and wind engineeringtwo in environmental engineering, and two in petroleum engineering.
Flow facilities include instrumented subsonic and supersonic wind tunnels, and several flow loops mainly used for research in gas-solid and density stratified flows.
Aerospace Engineering Aerospace engineering has grown dramatically with the rapid development of the computer in experiments, design and numerical analysis. Optical techniques and photography. Introduction to the principles of structure of materials, and theory and applications of diffraction and imaging techniques for materials characterization using X-ray diffraction and transmission electron microscopy TEM.
Students also have an opportunity to participate in an approved co-op program and may receive up to 3 semester credit hours for their experience. Students are encouraged to take the Fundamentals of Engineering Examination as the first step in the process of becoming a registered professional engineer.
The department also offers the doctor of philosophy Ph. MAE or Consent. Faculty supervised study of topics not available through regular course offerings.
