Mechanical Design

ME 370 is the first course in Mechanical Design taught to Screen Shot 2015-06-24 at 4.17.32 PMMechanical Engineering students at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.  It focuses on studying the kinematics and dynamics of machinery using principles from solid mechanics.  I had the pleasure of developing material for and teaching the practical laboratory section of the course to Juniors in 2013. We leveraged a team project format and computer based design and simulation to solve real-world problems.

An example project was the design of a Transmission Tower to withstand operating loads and inclement weather while minimizing cost and weight.
