Courses
EML 3041 Computational Methods
"As hard a problem as finding the quadrature of a circle!"
Techniques to solve engineering problems using numerical methods
and digital computers. Topics include roots of equations, simultaneous
linear equations, numerical integration and differentiation,
curve fitting and ordinary differential equations.
EML 3035 Programming
Concepts for Mechanical Engineers
“More
than just teach you how to program, this course teaches you how to think more
methodically and how to solve problems more effectively. As such, its lessons
are applicable well beyond the boundaries of computer science itself. That the
course does teach you how to program, though, is perhaps its most empowering
return. With this skill comes the ability to solve realworld problems in ways
and at speeds beyond the abilities of most humans.”
 David Malan who teaches a general computer science course in Harvard to
majors and nonmajors of computer science.
This course introduces the student to the world of
programming through MATLAB to develop scientific and engineering models.
The student will be able to write beginner level programs that include
conditional statements, repetition loops, input/output of files, modular
programming including subprograms, and matrix manipulation.
EML 6232 Introduction
to Composite Materials
"Do not give them any more straw to make bricks with, as your custom
has been; let them go and find straw for themselves" (Exodus 5).
Although manmade composites have existed for thousands of years,
the high technology of advanced composites has been used in the
aerospace industry only for the last fifty years. The applications
are becoming diverse ranging from aircraft structures and missile
canisters to tennis racquets and fishing rods. The objective of
this course is to analyze and design fiber reinforced composite materials.
