Lead Instructor: Martin Culpepper
This course provides intensive coverage of bearings, structures, fixtures, error models, and best practices that are used to create advanced mechanical systems. Theory and hands-on learning are combined to provide an introduction to the principles and practice of mechanical design with a focus on modeling, design, fabrication, assembly, and implementation. We will cover materials issues, emerging applications, and hands-on experiments to solidify understanding.
Energy, Sustainability, and Life Cycle Assessment [2.50s]
June 11-13, 2012 | $2,250 | 1.5 CEUs
