Mechanical Engineering


Mechanical Engineering field requires an
understanding of core
concepts
including

mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics,
material science, and

structural analysis
.
Mechanical engineers use these core principles
along with tools like

CAD

and

product lifecycle
management

to design and
analyze

manufacturing plants, industrial equipment
and machinery, heating and cooling
systems,

transport

systems,

air and

water crafts,
robotics,

medical devices, weapons, and more.


Sub disciplines of
Mechanical Engineering


Mechanics


Mechatronics and robotics


Structural Analysis


Thermodynamics and thermo
-
science


Energy conversion and HVAC systems.


Design and drafting/ CAD


Micro electro
-
mechanical systems(MEMS)


Nanotechnology

Civil Engineering

What's the difference between Civil Engineers and Mechanical Engineers?


Mechanical Engineers build weapons,

Civil Engineers build targets


Civil Engineering


Civil System


Geo Engineering


Environmental Engineering


Transportation Engineering


Project Management


Energy, Civil Infrastructure and Climate


Structural Engineering


What do structural engineers do?

We try to analyze things we don't
really know about


By simplifying it to something
that we can easily analyze


And then we convince the public
that we know everything ...

Application Tips:


Take Engineering classes at Chabot depending
on the University you want to transfer.


Start application and personal statement early.


Look for alliance programs like TAP/TAG.



Why UC Berkeley?


One of the best Engineering school nationwide(top
3) and best public university in the world.


Close to home. Can commute from home.


Cheaper tuition and expenses (financial aid covers
100% tuition)


Diversity


Transition to UC Berkeley


After the first midterm: HOLLY MOLLY! WHAT WAS
THAT?


All exams are time intensive.


Very Fast Paced classes.


Huge classes (over 120 students per class)


Tough Assignments


Not everyone’s a genius here, so DO NOT
underestimate yourself!!


Over crowded college!


Transfer Experience


Overwhelmed by:


Extracurricular activities: ballroom dancing,
research, church, community services, ...


Social life: roommates, church fellowship, honor
society, classmates, …


Decal Classes


classes taught by students: Learn
to fly: Private pilot ground school, Christian
foundations, Meditation in practice, …


Seminars, info sessions: FREE FOOD and a chance
to win an iPad


Homework, group projects


Chabot Vs. UCB


UCB has 32 libraries


Each classes have a discussion section which is
taught by a graduate student (GSI).


Amount of time spent on the assignments (30+
hours/week)


Lots of resources and opportunities for hands on
projects.


Lots of engineering clubs, honor societies,
fraternities.


FSAE at UC Berkeley


Student run group, from design to racing


Get hands on experience building a race car


Compete against other universities


Projects/Projects based Classes




Required: ME102 ‘A’, ME 102 ‘B’


Electives : ME 135, ME 130, E 128, ME 101, ME 110, ME C117,


ME 119, ME 165, ME C176

Concrete Canoe

A concrete canoe that can float
and go as fast as a dragon boat


UREKA!

Hull team: Design

Structural analysis: Modeling, simulating

Research team: Testing new materials

Construction team: Casting, painting

The rest: Practice rowing in the weight
room

Few words of advice…



Don't fall behind in your classes: Spend more time
studying in the library.


Working smart: prioritize, utilize all the available
resources, know what works better for you: some are
visual learners, kinesthetic learners.


Manage time well: don't spend time on stuff you
already know


Form study groups, make friends, don't hesitate to talk
about homework or ask questions.


Try to find internships or research positions. Think about
real life applications of what you learn.


Go to Office hours and Math Lab!!


Get involved in project based(Engineering and
science) clubs
.

FAIL ?


Of course I fail too. In facts, I've failed so many
times


But KEEP TRYING ANYWAY


As long as you try, you're awesome even though
you might not be able to achieve any of those.
