ME 465 Robust Control of Industrial Systems

Performance and vulnerabilities of continuous-feedback control systems in industrial applications. Theory, simulation, and real-world case studies building on a basic understanding of dynamical systems. PREREQ: ME 360 or ECE 360, or PERM/INST


ME 472 Vibrations

Teory and methods for analysis of vibrating physical systems. Natural frequencies, mode shapes, damping, forced vibrations, and frequency-response functions are analyzed by using computer simulation. PREREQ: ENGR 220, MATH 333.


ME 477 Biomaterials

Teory of biomaterials science. Medical and biological materials and their applications. Selection, properties, characterization, design and testing of materials used by or in living systems. PREREQ: CHEM 112 or MSE 245.


ME 479 Vertically Integrated Projects (VIP)

001 Plasma Medicine
A new area of research uses plasma for bio-medical applications including wound healing, bacterial disinfection, and tissue engineering. This VIP research group will study the use of plasma for treatment of chronic wound healing as experienced by diabetic patients.

003 Microgravity
UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH EXPERIENCE (1 to 3 credits). Provides students with an opportunity for supervised research or creative work in the field of his/her interest. The research will involve inquiry, investigation, discovery, or application, and must be supervised by a faculty member. The student may work with a graduate student who is performing research supervised by a faculty member.

004 Autonomous Robotic Systems
UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH EXPERIENCE (1 to 3 credits). Provides students with an opportunity for supervised research or creative work in the field of his/her interest. The research will involve inquiry, investigation, discovery, or application, and must be supervised by a faculty member. The student may work with a graduate student who is performing research supervised by a faculty member.

005 Informatics – Skunkworks
Data science is changing our wold, from self-driving cars to real time language translation. Come join us and be part of it! We are workign together to learn and apply the transformative power of informatics (e.g. data science, machine learning, data mining, artificial intelligence). Meeting days/location will be determined at the start of the semester.


ME 488 Design for Manufacturing and Assembly

Development and application of design methods for costefective and timely product manufacture and assembly. Concept, confguration, and parametric product design refnements evaluated with respect to alternative manufacturing and assembly processes. Case studies and design projects. PREREQ: ME 105, ME 350.


ME 497 Special Topics

001 Inspire ME seminar
Inspire ME is a weekly series featuring local, regional and national researchers, industry professionals, instructors and students sharing insight on everything from space exploration to human performance, student experience to professional development, engineering research to engineering practice.

002 Design of HVAC Systems
Selection of HVAC equipment and distribution system design to suit common residential, commercial and industrial spaces.  A focus on the practical aspects of HVAC system design with an emphasis on industry standards, efficiency, cost, and Code implications.
