Courses that I’ve taught at UNC Charlotte

ENER 6150:  System Dynamics

Intorduction to analytical and numerical methods of modeling and analyzing dynamic systems in the electrical, mechanical, thermal, and fluid realms.

ENER 6120:  Energy Generation and Conversion

Introductions to the dominant sources of energy production, including solar, wind, hydro, nuclear, and fossil fuels as well as emerging technologies such as thermoelectric generation and energy harvesters.  Energy storage strategies are also covered within the course which places on emphasis on engineering estimation, decision making, and technical writing.

CMET 6155:  Facilities Instrumentation and Controls

Design and analysis of industrial process control instrumentation. Topics include: process control devices and process control applications associated with industrial instrumentation and building and facility operation.

ELET 2241 / ETME 4163:  Instrumentation and Controls

Introduction to instrumentation for measurement and control of physical variables, with emphasis on electronic systems. Review of basic circuit analysis, electrical instruments, sensors and measurement principles and a survey of automatic controls from a systems point of view.

ELET 2241L /ETME-4163L:  Instrumentation and Controls Lab

The lab course that accompanies ELET 2241 / ETME 3163 where concepts are explored including circuits, PLCs, and LabVIEW.

ETGR-2122:  Technical Programming

This course introduces computer programming using a high level programming language, (MATLAB in this case), as related to engineering technology. Topics include input/output operations, sequence, control statements, arithmetic operations, arrays tables, pointers, and built-in functions.

ETME-3150:  Advanced CAD Modeling and Simulation

A continuation of ETME 1112. Introduces the use of some of the tools available for the analysis of parametrically-constructed CAD models. Topics include: the finite element method, finite element analysis (FEA), the use of FEA for stress analysis, thermal analysis, and motion studies, and the important distinctions between FEA results, theoretical results, and experimental results.

ETME-3152:  Stress Analysis Lab

In this course we use our knowledge of mechanics in applying laboratory methods to measure stress and strain in real engineering situations. The MET program also uses this course to assess your ability to function in a team environment and produce technical communications (both written reports and presentations).

ETME-3252:  Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer Lab

Experimentation involving the fundamental principles of thermodynamics and heat transfer, as applied to internal combustion engines, steam engines, engine dynamometers, refrigeration and heat pumps, and heat exchangers.
