EE 455 - Electrical/Mechanical Design

Lecture Hours: 2
Lab Hours: 2
Credit Hours: 3

Engineering in practice often employs a hybrid of electrical and mechanical design skills. This laboratory-intensive course takes students already proficient in analog design and microcontroller programming, and in the first module ties these skills together with microcontroller analog interfacing methods. The second module consists of a brief treatment of statics and continuum mechanics, and then introduces three-dimensional solid modeling, additive rapid prototyping, and stress analysis techniques. Students then demonstrate mastery of electrical and mechanical design skills in the third module design project. Laboratory experiments involving microcontroller interfacing and computer-aided design complement the lectures. Prerequisite(s): EE 230 , PY 161
