MCEN 4045 (3) Mechanical Engineering Design Project 1 and MCEN 4085 (3) Mechanical Engineering Design Project 2
Taught: F-2016, Spr-2017, F-2017, Spr-2018, F-2018, Spr-2019.
MCEN3045 Course Description. First part of a two-course capstone design experience in mechanical engineering. Covers problem definition, determining design requirements, alternative design concepts, engineering analysis, proof-of-concept prototype and CAD drawings. Students make several oral design reviews, a final design presentation, and prepare a written report. GEEN-BS and GEEN-BSGE students are not required to complete MCEN 2000, MCEN 3022, MCEN 3030 or MCEN 4026 but have additional prerequisites of GEEN 1400, 2400 and 3400.
Requisites: Prereqs ECEN3010/CSCI1320/GEEN1400/APPM1350/1360/2350/2360/PHYS1110/1120/1140 MCEN2000/2024/2043/2063/3012/3021/3025/3030 min grd C. Pre or coreqs MCEN3022/3047/4026/4043/WRTG3030. Restricted to stdnts w 87-180 units, MCEN or GEEN stdnts w sub-plan ME
MCEN3085 Course Description. Second part of a two-course capstone design experience in mechanical engineering. Includes refinement of prototype, design optimization, fabrication, testing, and evaluation. Students orally present the final design and prepare a written report and operation manual for the product. GEEN-BS and GEEN-BSEPL students are not required to complete MCEN 4026.
Requisites: Requires prerequisite course of MCEN 4045 (minimum grade C).
The Senior Design Courses are Organized by the Design Center Colorado.
