ME 251: Dynamics

This is an introductory undergraduate dynamics course which is one of the core courses offered in the department of mechanical engineering. Course topics include kinematics, kinetics, impulse-momentum formulation for particles and rigid bodies, work-energy cocepts and three dimensional gyroscopic motion. Students will become familiar with the formulation of the equations of motion of various dynamic mechanical systems and the problem solving skills to analyze their motions in time and space.

ME 360: Modeling and Control of Engineering Systems

This course introduces methods and techniques for modeling and controlling multi energy domain systems such as mechanical/ electrical/ electro-mechanical systems. This course focuses on classical controllers such as proportional, integral, and derivative (PID) controllers and root-locus technique to design such controllers. localization and mapping, and machine learning techniques for mobile robot applications.

ME 400 & 401: Capstone Design I & II

This course helps to provide the students who already have taken engineering design course the ability to apply the design knowledge to practical industrial problems and the creative problem solving ability based on the design methodology and techniques. The design team starts to solve the problem by defining the problem and further tries to think out a new creative design followed by detailed design. The design team then makes a design prototype and evaluate the result.

ME 403: Introduction to Naval Architecture & Ocean Engineering

The general principles of naval architecture and ocean engineering will be provided to students who are interested in ships and ocean applications. A wide range of topics will be addressed including the basics of ships, ship design, hydrostatics and stability, ship resistance and propulsion, motions in waves, ocean environment, offshore structures and platforms, ocean renewable energy, ocean acoustics, underwater instrumentation, and underwater vehicles.

ME 491: Special Topics (Programming for autonomous mobile system)

This course is designed to introduce the programing technique to build a SLAM for autonomous vehicle and improve the system performance through deep learning algorithm. Students will learn basic concepts of programing for system integration, like ROS, and tensor flow programming for machine learning and would have a chance to practice those concept through guided programming practices.

ME 652: Mobile Robotics

Fundamental concepts and real-world applications of mobile robotic systems including aerial, ground and marine unmanned vehicles are introduced. Students will learn and implement various mathematical techniques and algorithms for enhancing vehicle autonomy and robot intelligence. The topics of this course include vehicle kinematics/dynamics, guidance and control, path/trajectory planning, localization and mapping, and machine learning techniques for mobile robot applications.
