Undergraduate Courses

MECH ENG 2B03: Mechanical Engineering Measurements
Introduction to the theory and practice of engineering measurements, theory of measurement standards and statistical analysis. Precision shop measurements, instrumentation, signal conditioning and data acquisition. Measurements of strain and force, pressure, flow, temperature, and power.

MECH ENG 3O04: Fluid Mechanics I - Course Website

This course is an introduction to the subject of fluid mechanics. It includes the following topics: fundamental concepts, fluid statics, conservation laws, incompressible inviscid flows, Dimensional and similarity analysis, internal incompressible viscid flows, introduction to boundary layers, and lift and drag.  While covering the basics and fundamentals of fluid mechanics, the emphasis in this course will be on using those basic principles to analyze various engineering systems.

MECH ENG 4J03: "Introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics and Heat Transfer" - Course Website

This course is an introductory course in Computational Methods for Fluid Mechanics and Heat Transfer covering: concepts of modeling and numerical analysis, governing equations of thermo-fluid problems, finite-difference discretization method, FORTRAN, introducing engineering students to the use of computational commercial software packages in solving thermo-fluid problems.

Graduate Courses

Course Website
Review of vectors, tensors, tensors notation, hydrostatics and stresses stresses in fluids. Eularian and Lagrangian view points. Develop conservation of mass, momentum, and energy laws and examine their properties. Analyze boundary layer flows, potential flows, and introduce transition to turbulence and turbulent flows.

DM0824: Optimization of Energy Efficiencies in Industrial Processes
Course Website

In many industrial organizations, efficient engineering practices together with effective energy management programs can generate substantial savings that may amount to 40% of the total energy costs incurred in current operations. The key to achieving operational efficiencies and energy savings lies in combining energy management techniques with effective operational engineering through technology-based energy conservation measures. The course covers the fundamentals of industrial energy management and the technical procedures required for assessing energy saving opportunities (ESOs) in equipment and systems found in almost every industrial facility. These procedures can be applied on existing equipment or systems. It can also be used for sizing and selecting new equipment. The required background in heat transfer, fluid mechanics, and thermodynamics to support the analysis and the assessment of the various ESOs is also covered.


DM0827: Renewable Energy Systems - Course Website

The world is faced with severe negative consequences of the present non-renewable energy systems. Carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration in the atmosphere is constantly increasing and the effects of global warming are becoming more evident. There is a growing awareness of the opportunities and potential impact that renewable energy technologies and management may have in the short and longer term. The course covers the fundamentals of different renewable energy systems (RES) including biomass, hydropower, geothermal, wind, solar thermal and photovoltaics. It covers the basics of performance and economic analysis of RES. It also covers the use of RES in achieving sustainability in high performance green buildings and details of the LEED rating system for new construction and existing buildings. The course also introduces the use of computer programs for simulating and analyzing RES.
