    3
    Lab Hours:
    0
    Lab Fee:
    $0.00
    Course Description:

    An investigation of the various aspects of a mechanical design. The course combines the theory and calculations of the mechanical components with an investigation of the procedures and practices involved in performing a mechanical design. The student will be required to complete a comprehensive design as part of the course. The student will be responsible for not only completing the design but also preparing and delivering the design proposal or presentation to the customer. In the procedures and practices of performing a mechanical design the studies include: problem statements, need and function analysis, project planning. Gantt charts, risk analysis and communications with the customer. In the theory and calculations of a mechanical component, the items to be examined will include: belts, chains, clutches, bearings, gears, shafting, columns, and tolerances and fits. (Spring)
