This course introduces students to mechanical engineering systems and its application in real-world problem solving. Using Excel and MATLAB, students will structure and solve problems. Through hands-on activities, students will become familiar with basic mechanical components, tools and machines. Students will be introduced to professionalism in engineering and develop a personal professional development plan. This course requires a field trip to a local business and students will be required to provide or arrange for their own transportation. Course contains a required laboratory component.

This is a new course required to support attached overall curriculum changes.
