Student Learning Outcomes

By the end of this course, students should be able to:


1.    Properly use mechanical and electronic measuring devices to explore and verify theoretical concepts in fields of thermal science, fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, and dynamics and controls;  


2.    Use statistical techniques to analyze and interpret experimental data; 


3.    Calibrate various types of mechanical and electronic measurement devices;


4.    Design and execute a statistically sound experiment to explore a given engineering phenomena;


5.    Create a professional engineering lab journal;


6.    Present experimental results and methods in various industry supported formats;


7.    Prepare and deliver a professional oral presentation which presents technical results from an engineering experiment.


8.    Utilize solid engineering design techniques to design and fabricate a test device. 


Evaluation MethodWeighting/Points for EachDetails
Lab assignments70After each laboratory experiment, students will complete a written assignment. These assignments will help the students process through and analyze the laboratory experience and allow them to practice various forms of technical documentation.
Participation10Each student will be required to purchase a 3-ring notebook to use as a laboratory journal. Guidelines for keeping a laboratory journal will be passed out in class. Performance in the Applications Question will be counted in the lab journal / attendance grade.
Homework20Before each laboratory session, material will be posted on the course website to help review the theory required to be successful in the laboratory exercise. The assigned pre-lab work must be completed before conducting the laboratory exercise. Pre-Lab material will be turned in at the start of lab and students not completing the pre-laboratory assignment will not be allowed to conduct the laboratory experiment and will receive a grade of zero on the laboratory post-lab assignment.
