Principles of Engineering students will learn the process of successful product design, development and automation through the use of mechanical, electrical/electronic, pneumatic and hydraulic concepts.  This course will help students develop the knowledge and skills necessary for a variety of mechanical engineering and engineering technology fields. The primary focus of the course will be devoted to the processes associated with the successful manufacturing of products. The assignments will often include researching design alternatives, understanding material manufacturing techniques, and making decisions about the materials to be used in the manufacturing process.  The nature of these assignments facilitate collaboration among students with a hand-on approach to problem solving. 3-Dimensional C.A.D. drafting will be the central focus of  the product/process driven assignments. Production, automation and fabrication with C.A.D./C.A.M. milling, 3-D printing and a 40 watt laser cutter/engraver will be a large part of this course.

Work considered late (one week after due date) will be graded with a maximum grade of 60%. Work may be resubmitted with corrections and the grades will be averaged without penalty.
