This course presents an introduction to the principles of graphics communication in mechanical engineering. The course covers key engineering visualization techniques such as sketching, solid modeling, assemblies, dimensioning, tolerance definition and drafting using standard practices and state-of-the-art computer applications. The course emphasizes orthographic projections and multi-view drawings for engineering design and fabrication. At the end of the course, the students will work on a team-based design of a prototype device to be fabricated in ME 1211.
This course presents mechanical engineering students a survey of manufacturing processes including casting, forming, machining, welding, brazing, adhesive bonding, mechanical fastening, as well as forming and shaping plastics and composite materials. The course also covers important topics in quality assurance, testing, and inspection of manufactured products.
All course content and instructional materials listed through this link (FA/22 online courses in English) are in English. Instructors are bi-lingual (English and Spanish). They will provide instructions, mentoring, and assessment in English and Spanish, as needed by students.
The course instructional content is divided into 12 modules. The summer term is six (6) weeks long. Therefore, students must complete two modules per week. Thus, the online courses at PUPR are not self-paced.
II- You will need to ask for a special permit from your institution to take a course within the PUPR. You can check the course availability in the links above.
