Musical and Noisy Acoustics (Fall 2002)
Sound waves surround us, and this seminar introduces the
concepts of acoustics, the science and engineering of sounds.
Examples are primarily taken from the areas of musical
and noise control, but demonstrations also will be given in
the related areas of transducers, concert hall acoustics,
underwater acoustics, ultrasound, and bioacoustics. Students
will perform lab experiments, make field tests, and perform
computer simulations related to musical and noisy acoustics.
Faculty from the Graduate Program in Acoustics and the Applied
Research Laboratory will make guest appearances to discuss
they do in acoustical engineering. On-campus technical
tours are planned. As a bonus, all students will receive
sound level meters for future use.
497D - IDEALS
A 1-credit course to complement junior level core Mechanical
Engineering (i.e. ME82, ME30, ME33, ME51, ME54, AND ME412).
This course provides an opportunity to simultaneously use the
theoretical topics from core courses in a hands on, hardware
orientated, integrated fashion.

contest is a technical competition in which contestants design
airplanes/airborne structures made of balsa wood
ME 288 – Product Dissection
Bicycles are the product used in this product dissection lab.
Students are provided with old bicycles, which must be
completely disassembled, then reassembled to work like new.
Instructor: Tim Simpson
ENGR497G - Entrepreneurial
Greg Pierce, John Bagby and Andrew Bergstein are the teaching
team for ENGR497G - Entrepreneurial Business Basics, with 5
business finance (Greg Pierce), 5 weeks of business
property (John Bagby) and 5 weeks of marketing (Andrew
Computer and internet access are an integral part of the
three topics are subject areas that engineering students often
little or no exposure to in college, but should know the
they want to be active player in a high-technology company.

Methods in Engineering Design
This class will run IDEAS to demonstrate the application of
methods in engineering design (splines for approximation to
shapes, object manipulation, and more), taught during the
first part of
Instructors: N.J. Salamon
ME 51 - Mechanical Design
This class gives
students a tremendous opportunity for growth as a Mechanical
Engineer. They will use the skills that they learned in
calculus (Math 140/141), linear algebra (Math 220),
differential equations (Math 251), materials (E Mech 215), and
computer science (Cmp Sc 201) to solve real-world problems.

- Introduction to Engineering Design
The Introduction to Engineering Design course (ED&G 100)
introduces students to the process skills associated with
engineering design. Emphasis is on team work, communications
skills, and computer-aided analytical tools. These skills, along
with strong references to basic science and math skills,
comprise the engineering approach to problem-solving.
