Course Descriptions

ME 401 Applied Engineering Analysis (3 credits)
Topics include inner product spaces, operator algebra, eigenvalue problems, Fourier series, Sturm-Liouville theory and partial differential equations.  

ME 411 Integrated Product Development  (3 credits)

Organizational issues and decision-making for capital investments in new technologies. The product development and commercialization process is traced from research and development and marketing activities through the implementation phase involving the manufacturing function. Term project is a commercialization plan for a new manufacturing technology.

ME 421 Transport Phenomena (3 credits)
This course introduces theory and applications of heat, mass and momentum transport. The fluid dynamics topics such as conservation laws, laminar and turbulent flow, Navier Stokes equations of motion and other related topics will be covered. Topics in heat and mass transfer include internal and external convection, free convection, boiling and condensation, and the analogy between heat and mass transport. Practical problems of engineering applications in different areas will be discussed.

ME 432 Solid Mechanics (3 credits)

Introduction to continuum mechanics, methods of variation and finite element formulations; application to bars, beams, cylinders, disks and plates.

ME 442 Material Science (3 credits)
This course introduces advance materials for engineers, emphasizing the fundamentals of manufacturing/structure/property/function relation and applications.  Topics include materials selection for machine design component in micro and nano-scales, biomaterials, nano-composites, and optimized materials for nano-sensors & actuator systems.

ME 451 Mechatronics (3 credits)
Mechatronics is a multidiscipline technical area defined as the synergistic integration of mechanical engineering with electronic and intelligent computer control in the design and manufacture of industrial products and processes. This course covers topics such as actuators and drive systems, sensors, programmable controllers, microcontroller programming and interfacing, and automation systems integration.

ME 452 Nanotechnology (3 credits)
This course explores the fundamentals of nanotechnology and its applications for colloidal suspension, Electrophoretic deposition and nano-sensing by understanding materials properties, micro-machining, sensor and actuator principles. Two hours of lecture and three hours of lab per week.

ME 498 Advanced Topics in Mechanical Engineering (1 to 3 credits)
Selected topics in the field of mechanical engineering. These may include one or more of the following: control systems, automation, robotics, manufacturing systems, solid mechanics, energy systems, fluid flow, acoustics, computer systems, bio-mechanics.

ME 501 Graduate Education Continuum (1 credit)
Recorded with grade for one credit-hour. Occurs as a continuum bases till successful completion of thesis or project.

ME 599 Thesis/Project (3 credits)
Students have the option of selecting up to six credits- hours of thesis or three credit hour of project under guidance of a thesis/project advisor. The thesis will have a committee of three members; at least two members (including the advisor) must be Wilkes faculty members. The thesis/ project should be presented in an open forum.
