Verification is “The process of evaluating a system or component to determine whether the products of a given development phase satisfy the conditions imposed at the start of that phase.” (IEEE Standard Glossary of Software Engineering Terminology, Standard 610.12-1990.) Validation is the act of assessing the requirements, design, and development of a product to ensure that it will meet the user’s requirements, operational needs, and expectations at the time of delivery. Systems engineering verification and validation practices will be studied and applied in appropriate situations. Prerequisite: ETLS 508 - Systems Design

Strategic quality management is presented as a Driver--> System--> Results model. The DSR model provides a framework for better understanding your business and when and where to take action to improve results. The model is a tool that links company mission, strategic plans, competitive positioning, and customer focus as the DRIVER. People and processes form the SYSTEM that actually designs, produces, and delivers products and services. RESULTS include financial, customer, employee and process. The course also connects the DSR model to the Malcolm Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence, six sigma and lean improvement tools ISO 9000, and Quality Management Systems and tools such as Statistical Process Control (detailed training in tools such as SPC is not part of the class). In addition to developing an understanding of how to guide and manage quality strategically, the course also helps to identify and prioritize the "right questions to ask" to guide and manage tactically. Applying the course to real world situations should lead to improved results - financial, customer, employee and process.

This course provides the student with a set of skills to improve products and processes already in manufacturing as well as to develop products and processes in the development stages of a project. The definition of DOE promoted is " a tool to assist in the process of understanding the system". There will be discussion of how DOE fits into the overall product lifecycle and where it applies and does not apply to the area of testing. Tools covered include full and fractional factorials, central composite, Box-Behnken, Taguchi, Evolutionary Operation and the method of steepest ascent. Theoretical statistics understanding is assumed coming into the course. A standard, simple process will be presented which allows for improved communication and user confidence in using the tool set. The primary objective is to assist the student in implementing the skills learned as a part of the course. This is an applications - oriented course that includes case studies, team projects, student presentations and reports, guest lecturers and use of computational software. A quick statistical overview will be provided in the class as a refresher, but is not intended to cover the subjects in depth to students new to the subject. It would still be beneficial to review all of the topics prior to starting the class. The underlying statistics covered in ETLS 506 are a critical foundation for the material presented in the DOE class. The minimum background needs to include an understanding of: statistical symbology; normal distribution; ANOVA; and z, t, and F tests. General understanding of alpha and beta errors flow charts, Pareto charts, cause and effect diagrams and SPC is nice but not required. If you have equivalent background, the instructor will grant a written waiver.

Pre-clinical testing is utilized to evaluate the safety and potential efficacy of promising medical technologies prior to evaluation and use in human beings. This testing information is required by regulatory agencies around the world. The studies also provide extremely valuable and cost effective product development opportunities for medical product sponsors. The tests are defined by guidance documents, international standards and the formal product risk assessment. Coordination of the multifunctional team that acquires and also utilizes this data can greatly enhance the value of this testing. This course will review the history and preclinical regulatory requirements of medical devices and description planning and management of associated pre-clinical evaluations. In addition, the risks involved in medical device development and use are explored. Risk mitigation activities associated with development of an actual medical device are presented and then experienced through their application for a hypothetical medical device. Class time is devoted to providing feedback for individual student projects about mitigating the development risks for a student chosen real or hypothetical medical device.

This course offers an introduction to finite element analysis (FEA) in theory and practice. Students will learn the mathematical and physical foundation of the method, and will also be exposed to implementation via a commerical FEA program. Solution to real problems and projects will be integral parts of the course content and grade. Emphasis will be placed on the use of FEA for solid/structural mechanics problems, while the solution for thermal and fluid problems will be covered superficially. A strong background in mechanics of materials, physics and calculus is necessary. Knowledge of computer operating systems (windows or UNIX) and programming languages (FORTRAN, Basic, C) will be useful, but is not required.

Many engineering systems are inherently dynamic in nature. Characterizing and designing such systems requires mathematical modeling, simulation, and visualization using modern software such as MATLAB, SIMULINK, and SolidWorks, possibly with add-on modules. Lectures focus on the detailed applied mathematical modeling of a variety of systems from different energy domains with a bias towards mechanical systems such as mechanical translational, mechanical rotational, hydraulic, thermal, among others. The laboratory has 3 components to it: (1) software training(as necessary) , (2) developing dynamic models using MATLAB and SIMULINK, (3) creating CAD models of systems, and (4) integrating the dynamics models with the visualization to create computer animations of the resulting motions of the mechanical systems. Students also work on a team-based dynamic simulation and visualization of mechanical systems project.

The Engineering Capstone course provides graduating Masters students with a long-term perspective on the rapidly-changing face of global industry and technology, and familiarizes class members with important concepts pertaining to developing company strategy and attaining company objectives. The course emphasizes personally understanding issues of leadership and ethics in a global environment, and the impact of technical considerations in the context of a global society. Students will integrate concepts and ideas from their previous coursework and experiences into a cohesive body of knowledge, building on an awareness of 21st Century issues. An intended deliverable is that each student will personalize "the right questions to ask" for lifelong learning. In so doing, they will continue to optimize their effectiveness in the challenging global economy of today and tomorrow. Prerequisite: To register, students must be within six credits of completing their degree (excepting the Capstone) and have no grades of Incomplete.

The course addresses three basic questions: 1. What makes for a highly effective leader? 2. Who am I as a leader and how do I exhibit my leadership? 3. How do I develop my leadership? It is designed to develop engineering students’ leadership capabilities by building their own ‘roadmap’ for their leadership; increasing clarity about one’s self as a leader; strengthening their awareness for interpersonal and leadership effectiveness within organizations; and sharpening their capability for managing their leadership development throughout their career and life. Designed in seminar format, the course provides students with multiple readings, personal assessments, exercises and case studies, guest speakers, and large and small group dialogue. Students are encouraged to consider a vision of their career within a global mindset and grounded in the Engineering Code of Ethics. Assignments are intended to facilitate career management and presenting oneself as a professional and as a leader.
