ME 662 Mechanical Engineering Practice Design Laboratory

Purpose of Laboratory

The Mechanical Engineering Practice Design Laboratory is a design and team-collaboration resource for the capstone design course, ME 662 Mechanical Engineering Practice. This course is included in the laboratory for analysis and design software, which also accommodates industrial projects and in making professional presentations for our industrial project sponsors. An Internet-based telecommunication station and World Time Clock Suite is available for global collaboration as needed. The facility has been used for hands-on design and analysis software workshops for the students as well. Much of the senior design project work is done in group sessions utilizing the resources of the Mechanical Engineering Design Laboratory and that of the WATC, as shown in Figure B.6.2. Numerous reference materials are available through University Library Reserves, including specific analysis and reference texts, and DVD video of current oral reports.
