Student Learning Outcomes

1. Select materials and/or modify geometries to achieve successful mechanical components and products, as determined by static and fatigue safety factors.
2. Design machine elements, such as welded joints or bearings, to satisfy stress, deflection, life, and cost constraints.
3. Specify appropriate materials, geometries, and/or vendor products to satisfy various machine element requirements.
4. Perform analysis using common engineering methods such as MathCAD, Excel, Solidworks, and finite element.
