MER 340 - Manufacturing/Machine Component Design
(3 cr.) This course introduces machine component design and manufacturing machines, relating fundamental engineering science to machine components. It covers load, stress and strain analyses and fatigue. The course progresses to the study of machine component design to include mechanical components such as linkages, fasteners, springs, bearings, gears and shafts. The course culminates in team-oriented design and manufacture of a mechanical engineering product using the techniques, tools, machines and equipment that were developed and taught throughout the course and its associated lab (MER 340L). Prerequisite: MER 220, MER 221; Every Year, Spring
