2.670 Mechanical Engineering Tools
Introduces the fundamentals of machine tools use and fabrication techniques. Students work with a variety of machine tools including the bandsaw, milling machine, and lathe. Mechanical Engineering students are advised to take this subject in the first IAP after declaring their major. Enrollment may be limited due to laboratory capacity. Preference to Course 2 majors and minors.
2.704 Projects in Naval Ship Conversion Design
Focuses on conversion design of a naval ship. A new mission requirement is defined, requiring significant modification to an existing ship. Involves requirements setting, design plan formulation and design philosophy, and employs formal decision-making methods. Technical aspects demonstrate feasibility and desirability. Includes formal written and verbal reports and team projects.
2.708 Traditional Naval Architecture Design
Week-long intensive introduction to traditional design methods in which students hand draw a lines plan of a N. G. Herreshoff (MIT Class of 1870) design based on hull shape offsets taken from his original design model. After completing the plan, students then carve a wooden half-hull model of the boat design. Covers methods used to develop hull shape analysis data from lines plans. Provides students with instruction in safe hand tool use and how to transfer their lines to 3D in the form of their model. Limited to 15.
2.979 Undergraduate Teaching
For students participating in departmentally approved undergraduate teaching programs. Students assist faculty in the design and execution of the curriculum and actively participate in the instruction and monitoring of the class participants. Students prepare subject materials, lead discussion groups, and review progress. Credit is arranged on a subject-by-subject basis and is reviewed by the department.
2.981 New England Coastal Ecology
Provides exposure to marine communities found along the coast of New England and how they fit into global patterns. Focuses on the ecology of salt marshes and rocky shores, and the biology of plants and animals that live in these complex habitats. Prepares students to recognize common inhabitants of these two communities and develops understanding of the major environmental factors affecting them, the types of ecological services they provide, and likely impacts of current and future climate change. Includes visits to field and research centers. Limited to 20.
2.989 Experiential Learning in Mechanical Engineering
Provides students the opportunity to learn and gain professional experience by participating in industrial projects related to Mechanical Engineering. Minimum project length is 10 weeks. Requires a written report upon completion. Before enrolling, students must contact MechE Graduate Office for procedures and restrictions; they must also have a firm internship offer and an identified MechE faculty member who will act as supervisor. Limited to Mechanical Engineering graduate students.
2.99 Topics in Mechanical Engineering
Provides credit for work on material in mechanical engineering outside of regularly scheduled subjects. Intended for study abroad under the Cambridge-MIT Exchange Program or an approved one-term or one-year program. Credit may be used to satisfy specific SB degree requirements. Requires prior approval. Consult department.
2.990 Practical Experience
For Mechanical Engineering undergraduates participating in curriculum-related off-campus experiences in mechanical engineering. Before enrolling, students must have an employment offer from a company or organization and must find a Mech E supervisor. Upon completion of the coursework the student must submit a detailed design notebook, approved by the MIT supervisor. Subject to departmental approval. Consult Department Undergraduate Office for details on procedures and restrictions.
