Design of Material Structures

ENGR - 225

Credits: 3

Catalog Year: 2017

This is a capstone course which integrates learning outcomes from the engineering statics, dynamics, and graphics, mathematics, and science courses in the AS-Engineering program. The course is developed to utilize key concepts of mechanics of materials in various design applications. Key topics include the concept of stress at a point, strain, and stress-strain relations, stress trans- formation, and structural failure theories. Students will apply these concepts to solve engineering design problems, and student teams will work on open-ended engineering projects. Projects may involve disassembly and analysis of some manufactured products to gain an under- standing of the engineering design. Technical writing and oral presentation along with project management skills are emphasized.
