SUBJECT COURSES: Mechanical Engineering

Each subject accounts for 3 credits.

 

Each of the following subjetcs may be studied as a continuing education course.

 

Materials Science

This course explains how materials are manufactured; why they behave the way they do; how they are fabricated into structural objects-parts; and how they can be compounded into alloys, reinforced composite structures, and flexibilized toughened structures. It considers the properties of materials utilized in practice of engineering, and the atomic, molecular, and crystalline structure of metals, ceramics, composites, and polymeric materials.

Instructor: Wolf Dettmer

 

Mechanical Drafting

This course explains mechanical drafting formats and projection principles, considering dimensions, tolerances, symbols, and presentation methods for several machine elements and mechanical designs.

Instructor: Higinio Menendez Milanes

 

Hydraulics & Pneumatics

This course presents industrial hydraulics and pneumatics, its system components, the design of hydraulic and pneumatic circuits, and its role in computer, robotics, and electro-mechanical devices.

Instructor: Higinio Menendez Milanes

 

Mechanics: Statics

This course reviews static mechanics, force systems, equilibrium of particles and rigid bodies, center of gravity, areas, masses and volumes, inertia, friction, kinematics of particles, and the application of static mechanics to structures and machine elements.

Instructor: Higinio Menendez Milanes

 

Mechanics: Dynamics

This course reviews dynamic mechanics, the motion of rigid bodies, vibration, translation and rotation, impulse, momentum, work and energy, and the application of dynamic mechanics to projectiles, gyroscopes, machine elements, and other engineering systems.

Instructor: Higinio Menendez Milanes

 

Thermodynamics

This course reviews the main principles and laws of thermodynamics, heat and mass transfer, and fluid dynamics.
