  • Design Garage is a Winter/Spring class (a two quarter commitment is required). The class is a deep dive in design thinking that uses student-led projects to teach design process and methods. The projects come from investigations conducted during the Fall quarter where the preliminary need finding, customer research, and product or service ideas have been developed to provide the seed...

  • This is the second half of the two quarter Design Garage sequence. Students will complete projects begun in ME316B the prior quarter. Prerequisite: ME316B and graduate student standing. Design Institute class; see http://dschool.stanford.edu.

  • Thermodynamics and electrochemistry for batteries. Emphasis on lithium ion batteries, but also different types including lead acid, nickel metal hydride, metal air, sodium sulfur and redox flow. Battery electrode materials, electrolytes, separators, additives and electrode-electrolyte interface. Electrochemical techniques; advanced battery materials with nanotechnology; battery device...

  • Addressing the energy challenges of today and the environmental challenges of the future will require efficient energy conversion techniques. This course will discuss the circuits used to efficiently convert ac power to dc power, dc power from one voltage level to another, and dc power to ac power. The components used in these circuits (e.g., diodes, transistors, capacitors, inductors) will...

  • Restricted to graduate students. Focus is on the role of the product manager in industry. Topics include product management skills, leadership and team management, getting a product management job, corporate and project finance for engineers, sales and marketing for engineers and business strategy. Seminar with in-class exercises and guest speakers from industry. Limited to 50....

  • Capstone course. Mechanical engineering design is experienced by students as they work on team projects. Prerequisites: 80, 101, 112, 131 a,b, 203. Enrollment limited to ME majors.

  • Students enroll concurrently in ME 316. Over the course of the year, students create and present two master's theses involving the synthesis of aesthetics and technological concerns in the service of human need and possibility.

  • This seminar is for students to learn how to assess the impact of historical importance through the lens of the automobile. Students will participate in discussions about measuring and judging historical importance from a number of perspectives - engineering, aesthetic, historical, etc. They will then decide on criteria and use these to be a part of a judging team at the Pebble Beach Concours...

  • Sensors are widely used in scientific research and as an integral part of commercial products and automated systems. The basic principles for sensing displacement, force, pressure, acceleration, temperature, optical radiation, nuclear radiation, and other physical parameters. Performance, cost, and operating requirements of available sensors. Elementary electronic circuits which are typically...
