Senior design courses. Complete design sequence with a required capstone project spanning two semesters. While the focus is on the capstone disciplinary design experience, it includes the two-credit core module on Engineering Economic Design (E 421) during the first semester.
Analysis of the automotive vehicle as an entire integrated system under highway and off-road conditions. Significant subject areas include power-train design, control and stability; suspension design, tire-road interface, soil-vehicle interface, four-wheeled, tracked and unconventional vehicles; emphasis is on design theory.
Engineering graphics: principles of orthographic and auxiliary projections, pictorial presentation of engineering designs, dimensioning and tolerance, sectional and detail views, assembly drawings. Descriptive geometry. Engineering figures and graphs. Solid modeling introduction to computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) using numerically-controlled (NC) machines.
