Technology Graduate Courses with an MET Emphasis
MET 527 - Technology from a Global Perspective
Introduction to the challenges faced by the practicing technologist when working and interacting with international technical personnel both here and abroad, including history, standards, education, and practice of technology outside the U.S.
MET 530 - Facilities Engineering Technology
This course is a study of the application of the engineering sciences and technology to the solution of problems associated with mechanical and electrical systems in buildings. The emphasis is on commercial and industrial facilities. Identifying energy conservation measures and evaluating their economic impact is an important focus of the course for both mechanical and electrical systems.
MET 535 - Metalcastings
An advanced study of metalcasting practices and processes, foundry equipment, casting defects and their remedies. The emphasis is placed on castability related design optimization of casting, gating and risering systems. Design optimization involves numerical analysis of structural, thermodynamics and fluid mechanics phenomena involed with casting process.
MET 546 - Industrial Application of CIM
Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) as a strategy for improving a manufacturing operation. Emphasis will be placed on the technology, systems and human resources which are to be integrated to better meet the objectives of the company.
MET 581 - Manufacturability
Application of the principles of production design, design of manufacturing processes, tooling specification, and metrology. Rapid design and prototyping and design for manufacturability are discussed. The study of advanced manufacturing processes including non-traditional machining, assembly, fabrication, and processing of non-traditional materials.
