Undergraduate Course Changes


1. Change semester ME 443 is taught


Old:

ME 443 Thermal/Fluids Laboratory 1 credit.
Measurement of thermal and fluid
properties, experiments on fluid flow and heat transfer systems. P
REREQ: CE/ME 341.
COREQ: ME g476. F


New:

ME 443 Thermal/Fluids Laboratory 1 credit.
Measurement of thermal and fluid
properties, experiments on fluid flow and heat transfer systems. PREREQ: CE/ME 341
and ME g476. S


Rationale:

This change will separate

the two ME laboratory classes (ME 406 and ME
443) into different semesters


one in Fall and the other in Spring. Additionally, this will
allow ME 476 Heat Transfer to serve as a pre
-
requisite for ME 443 (as compared to a co
-
requisite).



2. Cross
-
list
EE g473 as ME g473 and change pre
-
requisites.


Add:

ME g473 Automatic Control Systems 3 credits.
Study of continuous
-
time and
discrete
-
time control systems using both frequency
-
domain and state
-
space techniques;
topics include design methodology, performa
nce specifications, analysis and design
techniques. Cross
-
listed as EE g473. PREREQ: EE 345 or ME g405. F


Rationale:

ME students, who are required to take ME g405, will now be able to take
ME/EE g473 as an elective course without taking the additional c
lass of EE 345.
Material pertinent to ME/EE g473 is taught in both ME g405 and EE 345.



3. Change EE g473 to reflect the cross
-
listing with ME g473


Old:

EE g473 Automatic Control Systems 3 credits.
Study of continuous
-
time and
discrete
-
time control s
ystems using both frequency
-
domain and state
-
space techniques;
topics include design methodology, performance specifications, analysis and design
techniques. PREREQ: EE 345. F


New:

EE g473 Automatic Control Systems 3 credits.

-
time an
d
discrete
-

-
space techniques;
topics include design methodology, performance specifications, analysis and design
techniques. Cross
-
listed as ME g473. PREREQ: EE 345 or ME g405. F


Rationale:

Confo
rm with the cross
-
listed class of ME g473

Mechanical Systems sequence and will be of greater use to the students.








Graduate Course Changes


1. Create a graduate course in heat transfer


Add:

ME 676 Conduction Heat Transfer 3 credits
. Graduate
-
level course in
Conduction Heat Transfer. Emphasis on problem formulation, analytical solutions, and
numerical techniques. PREREQ: ME g476. CO
-
REQ: MATH g521. D


Rationale:

In support of the ne
w MS in ME, this course will give students wider options
in the thermal/fluids area. The course has been taught in the past in a slightly different
variation as ME 599 (Fall 2002) and is currently being taught as ENGR 652 (Fall 2004).
Attached is a copy
of the current semester’s syllabus.
