Course Number: AUTO 501 Cross Listing: n/a Credits: 3 Description: The objective of this course is to examine the major systems and concepts related to the development of a vehicle in a global marketplace. The course focuses on the layout of the major space-defining vehicle subsystems in the context of interactions between the subsystems and overall vehicle demands. The process followed will be based on systems engineering and will frame the design process in the context of the vehicle needs. Performance prediction, engineering metrics and design requirements will be presented and discussed for selected subsystems.
Course Number: AUTO 503 Cross Listing: n/a Credits: 3 Description: As an essential component of the Master of Engineering in the Automotive Engineering degree program, students are required to participate in a sponsored project in automotive engineering. 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. Each project must have a clearly defined problem or need; must show a solution methodology; and must be value-added to the sponsor.
