Introduction to Robotics This course covers robot mechanisms, dynamics, and intelligent controls. Topics include manipulators, body dynamics, 3D simulation, actuators, and sensors;

How Machines Work Hands-on experience taking things apart, drawing what they observe, and completing an individual project. Emphasis on the physics and history of machines.

Manufacturing Design & engineering design, providing skills useful in professional practice. A major element of the course is design of an industrial robot.

Toy Design An introduction to the product design process, and prototyping new toys

Mechanical Engineering

Materials Science: fundamentals of physical structure, energetics, and bonding in materials.

Materials Processing and the scaling laws that govern process speed, volume, and material quality. In particular, this course will cover the transport of heat and matter.

Solid-state Chemistry, with an emphasis on solid-state materials and their application to engineering systems design.

Engineering Tools Students work with a variety of machine tools, the emphasis being on practical problem-solving, not programming or algorithms.

Optics A) geometrical optics: ray-tracing, lens design, and radiometry. B) wave optics: polarization, interference, diffraction, and resolution.

Holographic Imaging from a scientific point of view, moving from interference and diffraction patterns, to imaging of single points to the display of 3D images.

Aerospace Engineering

Aerospace Engineering principles are revealed through a hands-on, lighter-than-air (LTA) vehicle design project. Students must design, build, and fly radio-controlled vehicles.

Aerodynamics – fluid mechanic concepts governing the aerodynamic performance of wings, including subsonic vortex creation, viscous flows, turbulent boundary layers, and thin airfoil theory.

Jet Propulsion aerospace propulsive devices as systems, with functional requirements and limitations that constrain design choices. Both air-breathing and rocket engines are covered.

NASA Jet Propulsion Lab Links to the various resources available to students, such as download kits and competition dates.

Electrical Engineering (EECS)

Nano-electronics, the electronic properties of molecules, carbon nanotubes and crystals, including energy bands and the development of semiconducting composites.

Electromagnets including wireless and optical communications, circuits, computer peripherals, microwave communications, power generation and transmission.

Magnets: attraction and repulsion, magnetic torques, magnetic materials, plasma control, induction, magnetic levitation, magnetic recording, hard disks, superconducting electromagnets, and ferrofluids.

Civil Engineering

Building Technology aims at providing a fundamental understanding of the physics related to building design and placement, in order to offer the occupants physical, functional, and psychological benefits.

Urban Planning, with an emphasis on the evolving structure of cities, and the way that cities, suburbs, and metropolitan areas can be re-designed and systematically developed.

Structural Design for buildings and bridges, from Gothic cathedrals to long-span suspension bridges.

Engineering & Computer Jobs

The Fundamentals of Engineering exam should be taken immediately after earning a bachelors degree from an ABET-accredited program. Engineers who pass this exam are called engineers in training (EIT), or engineer interns. After meeting work experience requirements, engineer interns can attempt a second certifying exam, called the Principles and Practice of Engineering Exam. Thereafter, acquisition of a professional engineering license enables management of junior engineers, the ability to sign off on engineering projects, and provide services directly to the public. Wages vary by employer and location. Aside from salary, most engineering jobs include excellent benefits, as well as retirement plans.
