Senior Lab Courses
Students must take two laboratory courses. Students may also take ME 445 (4 cr.), which serves as both a 3-credit technical elective and a 1-credit laboratory course. Please refer to the University Bulletin for prerequisites needed prior to registering for a course.
ME 315: Heat Transfer Laboratory (1 cr.)
Application of the fundamental concepts associated with conduction, convection and radiation to the actual measurements of heat transfer.
ME 325: Fluids Laboratory (1 cr.)
Laboratory experience with fluid mechanics measurement techniques: flow visualization, pressure measurement, hot-wire anemometry, laser Doppler anemometry, lift and drag, computational fluid dynamics.
ME 355: Automatic Controls Laboratory (1 cr.)
Experimental investigation of simple position, velocity, and temperature control systems with analog and digital controllers.
ME 375: Vibrations Laboratory (1 cr.)
Experimental measurement and analysis of mechanical system dynamics.
E MCH 316: Experimental Determination of Mechanical Response of Materials (1 cr.)
Experimental techniques for mechanical property measurement and structural testing.
