    Course Description

    This course is a seminar series, by guest speakers from throughout the country, to keep all MS and PhD students in ME current with the latest research and advances in the field of Mechanical Engineering. Not resticted to major. Course is repeatable.


  3. Justification

    A. Please briefly explain why it is necessary and/or desirable to add this course.

    All ME graduate students need to learn about the most recent research advances, high-tech innovations, and become more broard in their understanding of other reasearch areas of ME, outside of their own.

    B. What is the need or demand for this course? (Indicate if this course is part of a required sequence in the major.) What other programs would this course service?

    All graduate students (MS and PhD) in Mechanical Engineering are required to be continuously enrolled in the graduate seminars series while they are registered for either course credit or thesis/dissertation credit. Enrollment will be 50-60 per semester.

    C. Has this course been offered as Selected Topics/Experimental Topics course? If yes, how many times?

    Yes, The seminar series started Fall2004

    D. What qualifications for training and/or experience are necessary to teach this course? (List minimum qualifications for the instructor.)

    Most of the guest lspreakers will hold the degree of PhD in Engineering or the natural sciences, however, it is not a requirement.


  4. Other Course Information

    A. Objectives

    All graduate students (MS and PhD) in Mechanical Engineering are required to be continuously enrolled in the graduate seminars series while they are registered for either course credit or thesis/dissertation credit. The purpose and objective of the course is to keep ME graduate students current with the latest research and advances in their own research field and the general field of Mechanical Engineering.

    B. Learning Outcomes

    Students will learn and be acquainted with the most recent research areas in the field of Mechanical Engineering. Based on the seminar series, students will be more aware of research being performed throughout the country, by renowned experts, in areas possibly not directly related to their own.

    C. Major Topics

    Topics are variable by semester. Depending on the semester, topics could include microelectrics, composites, bioengineering, biofluidics, biomaterials, biomechanics, nanotechnology, nanomanufacturing, nanomaterials, robotics, mechatronics, rehabilitation engineering, autonomous vehicles, thin films, thermal-fluids, etc.
