Mechanical Engineering - Rising 10th-12th
Mechanical engineering covers an exceptionally broad range of topics and graduates from this major are recruited into a wide variety of industries. In this introductory course, students will learn about a handful of principles in select topics such as fluid mechanics, power and work, 3D modeling, design, and modern computing / engineering analyses through lectures and hands-on activities. The course will also introduce students to inter-disciplinary mechanical engineering applications and its cutting-edge research areas in related fields such as biomedical engineering. The main objectives of this course are to provide a brief survey of how mechanical engineering relates to real-world applications and a taste of the types of topics one would learn as a mechanical engineer.
This course is offered in Session Seven (July 20-24).
