MN 125 Engineering Computation with Application Software (4 Credits)
Prepares students for use of application software to solve a variety of engineering problems. Introduces students to engineering analysis using spreadsheets and Math application software such as Matlab. Students will design algorithms using a high-level programming language to solve technical problems.

Course Description:
This course is based on the High Tech Tools and Toys Lab at Northeastern University and uses an inquiry based learning approach. It serves as an introduction and foundation to engineering problem solving using computers. It gives students an opportunity to be immersed in the field of engineering and puts modern tools (hardware, software, sensors) into the hands of undergraduate students as early as possible during their education to solve a series of engineering problems. This course introduces a high level programming language (Matlab) for development of algorithms and programs to control engineered parts; acquire, analyze and present engineering data from sensors and to solve a variety of engineering problems. Students learn basics of data acquisition, instrument control and image processing. It allows students learn the computation, visualization, and programming and critical thinking skills in a fun and hands-on setting that help them in their advanced engineering courses.

Project Management MN 140 (4 Credits)

In Spring 2013, the course is being offered as a part of a learning community.

Course Description:
This course provides an introduction to project management theory and the use of MS Project software. It focuses on coordinating tasks, assigning resources, and tracking cost to develop a project schedule. Students learn project management skills while working on actual projects. MS Project and various CAD, CS and MS Office applications are used to complete hands-on course work.

MN 271 Project Design (4 Credits)

Course Description:
An advanced manufacturing course that will train students to use MasterCAM, a Computer Aided Manufacturing software. This course is part of the CAD Certificate and Engineering Design Program. More Information Coming soon!
