Winter 2014 Graduate Courses
Professor James Freudenberg
The intent of this project course is to provide students with a capstone project experience where they can apply the knowledge and skills acquired through the Automotive Engineering degree program to relevant automotive engineering problems.
Professor Arthur Hyde
Lean Program Engineering provides an opportunity to acquire and demonstrate mastery of critical lean product design engineering disciplines within the context of an automotive vehicle program team.
Professor Christian Lastoskie
Students develop an understanding of energy challenges confronting society and investigate technologies that seek to address future energy needs.
Professor Semyon Meerkov
Production systems in large volume manufacturing (e.g., automotive, semiconductor, computer, etc.) are studied.
Professor Suljo Linic
In this course, students will carry out a project in interdisciplinary teams, and where possible in conjunction with an internship held during the summer with an industrial or governmental sponsor.
Professor Richard Robertson
The objective of this course is to examine the behavior, processing, and design of composite materials, especially fiber composites. The emphasis is on the chemical and physical processes currently employed and expected to guide the future development of the technology.
Professor Jeff Cook
This course emphasizes a systems approach to automotive design including a focus on automotive structures, suspension, steering, brakes, and driveline.
Professor Huei Peng
Upon completion of this course, students should be able to follow the literature on these subjects and perform modeling, design, analysis, and development work in this field.
Professor Elijah Kannatey-Asibu, Jr.
This course provides an introduction to the procedures and methodologies for designing manufacturing systems. Topics covered include paradigms of manufacturing, building blocks of manufacturing systems, numerical control and robotics, and many more.
Professor Pat Hammett
As organizations improve their operational quality, they recognize the need to apply more systematic analytical techniques to design quality into their products and services. This course provides methods and analysis tools for preventing quality and warranty concerns.
Professor Judy Jin
This project course is intended to provide students with an industrially-relevant team project experience in manufacturing.
*503 project courses are available only to students enrolled in the respective U-M degree programs.
