Courses Developed

  • ENME207: Fabrication and Machine Tool Practices for Engineering

In order to make the best decisions in product design and development, it is important to understand the capabilities and limitations of different fabrications techniques. Students will learn to identify machine parts and functions, define machine shop terminology, calculate shop formulas and theories, and execute machine operations: milling, lathe, CNC machining, 3D printing, and laser cutting.

Courses Taught

  • ENME272: Introduction to Computer Aided Design
  • ENME361: Vibration, Controls, and Optimization I
  • ENME371: Product Engineering and Manufacturing
  • ENME400: Machine Design
  • ENME472: Integrated Product and Process Development
