Course Syllabus



Purdue University

ME365 Measurement Systems, Spring 2012

This course covers modeling and instrumentation of physical systems. The student should leave the course with a better appreciation of the behavior of dynamic systems and a good grasp of measurement fundamentals  applicable to a wide range of engineering problems.

ME576 Computer Control of Manufacturing Processes, Spring 2011

Automation and control of manufacturing processes have been vigorously pursued in modern manufacturing to scope with the demand of increased productivity and quality. This trend toward computerization and integration leads to a demand for appropriately trained engineers. The purpose of this course is to introduce essential knowledge in the control of manufacturing systems and processes.

ME363 Principles and Practice of Manufacturing Processes, Fall 05,07,08

This course covers basics in the areas of metrology, machining, CNC, micro fabrication and rapid prototyping.  The lab exercises provide the students with opportunities to gain hands on experiences and experimentation in these important areas.

EPICS: Engineering Projects In Community Service, Fall 05

EPICS is a unique program in which teams of undergraduates are designing, building, and deploying real systems to solve engineering-based problems for local community service and education organizations. EPICS was founded at Purdue University in Fall 1995.
