Mechanical component design
This course first covers design methodology and failure criteria based on deterministic and stochastic analyses. Then we examine the design of mechanical components, such as gears, bolts, nuts, shafts, springs, and bearings, by both the classical safety factor approach method and the reliability or statistical method.
Understanding of Materials and Processing
This course includes the basic principle of engineering materials and fabrication processes as well as the micro-fabrication processes for the semi-conductor and MEMS processing.
