instructor permission)

MET 166 (3 credits)
Mechanical Design

A study of power transmission fundamentals and designrelated computations. Design applications include sizing
and/or selection of belts, chains, gears, bearings, couplings,
shafts, cams, linkages, and electric motors.

MET 171 (3 credits)
Product Design

The practical implementation of the mechanical design
practices, engineering standards, and computer-aided
drafting techniques as they relate to the design and
fabrication of a manufactured product.
Prerequisites: MET 106, MET 116 (Both with final grade of C
or higher or instructor permission)

80 * Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology

MET 176 (3 credits)
Manufacturing Processes

A comprehensive study of the processing of materials as it
relates to manufacturing. In this course, class lectures and
literature review will be combined with machine shop practice
and plant visits to form a well-rounded understanding of the
intricacies of manufacturing technology.

MET 201 (3 credits)
Engineering Mechanics

An introduction to the analysis of the static and dynamic
forces which govern the behavior of structures and
machines. The analytic skills in vector mechanics
established in this course are employed for the design of
structural components and assemblies as well as machine
elements such as cams, gears, and linkages.
Prerequisites: MATH 137, MATH 141, PHYS 113 (All with
final grade of C or higher or instructor permission)
Co-requisite: PHYS 213

MET 206 (3 credits)

A study of the effects of stationary and moving fluids as it
relates to the analysis and design of mechanical systems.
Topics involving the volume and energy transfer of a working
fluid are utilized to demonstrate the problems commonly
encountered in industry.
Prerequisites: MATH 137, MATH 141, PHYS 113 (All with a
final grade of C or higher or instructor permission)
Co-requisite: MET201, PHYS 213

MET 211 (3 credits)
Production Design

An introductory course in manufacturing engineering
and lean production methods.
