This course consists of a 1 hour course and 4 hours lab session per week. Class hours will be spent mostly explaining and discussing course materials, project concepts, solving and analyzing relevant case problems, model building, and project reports. Students have to study and research engineering information on their own to further their understanding, advance and accomplish their projects. Student participation in project discussions is mandatory.
Project tasks will be assigned and turned in each week, unless specified by the instructor. Each student is responsible for submitting his own individual personal project tasks copy written in his own words. No dual or group project tasks copy is accepted unless specified by the instructor.
Final Project Reports
A final comprehensive report is required at the end of the semester and the student must dedicate time including lab time to built their respective tools or machines. A major PowerPoint presentation is required at the end of the semester. This presentation must be performed by all group members.
Project reports are based on theories studied in previous classes, or presented during class sessions. All project reports must be presented with at least three full mandatory paragraphs, theory, results, and discussion. Parts and assembly drawings have to be included in the project report. A special attention will be dedicated to the project presentation and drawings.
The final grade for the course will be based on the scores earned in the project tasks, final report and presentation, and attitude. The attitude term account for class and project participation, teamwork, meeting deadlines, class attendance, work neatness, and general attitude. Average projects tasks contribute 25%, final report and final presentation contribute 35%, and attitude contributes 40%, for a total of 100%. The overall average score (X) for the course is determined as follows:
X =0.25 x (average project tasks) + 0.35 x (final report) + 0.40 x (attitude).
Project tasks must be turned in on the due date, at the beginning of class. Once class starts, project tasks will be still accepted for a grace period of 48 hours and graded over 80%. Once the grace period is over, no project tasks will be accepted.
Students are expected to attend class on regular basis and are responsible for class notes while being absent.
