2 Classes (18 Units)2.00 (6), 2.001 (12)
2.00 Introduction to Design
Project-based introduction to product development and engineering design. Emphasizes key elements of the design process, including defining design problems, generating ideas, and building solutions. Presents a range of design techniques to help students think about, evaluate, and communicate designs, from sketching to physical prototyping, as well as other types of modeling. Students work both individually and in teams. Enrollment limited; preference to Course 2-A sophomores.
This class has no prerequisites.
2.00 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by M. Yang.
Lecture occurs 3:30 PM to 5:00 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 3-370.
This class counts for a total of 6 credits.

2.001 Mechanics and Materials I
Introduction to statics and the mechanics of deformable solids. Emphasis on the three basic principles of equilibrium, geometric compatibility, and material behavior. Stress and its relation to force and moment; strain and its relation to displacement; linear elasticity with thermal expansion. Failure modes. Application to simple engineering structures such as rods, shafts, beams, and trusses. Application to biomechanics of natural materials and structures.
Lecture occurs 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 10-250.
This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
