ME 329 - Mechanical Analysis in Design
A "capstone" course for MSc and PhD students in Mechanical Engineering that provides an experience in the application of mechanical analysis
- Stanford and Industry partners come together to propose challenging engineering analysis and design projects.
- Groups of 3 or 4 graduate students in Mechanical Engineering work during the 10 weeks of the winter quarter to analyze these challenges.
- An engineer from the Industrial partner and a Stanford faculty member serve as mentors for the team.
Benefit for the Student
- Exposure to a “real-life” problem before graduation, applying the concepts they specialized on during their graduate studies.
- In addition to the invaluable experience, they can use the project in their CV during their job search.
- Opportunity to meet and network with industry mentors.
Benefit for the Industry Partner
- Early access to Stanford students on the brink of graduating and looking for a position (all students in the course).
- Intimate knowledge of a student performance and capability, for the students in the mentored team.
- Developing a relationship and engaging with Stanford faculty members in relevant areas.
Benefit for Stanford Mechanical Engineering
- Provide an exciting graduate student experience.
- Input from industry partners help shape the content and emphasis of lower level courses, and in this way better prepare students.
- Developing a relationship and engaging with engineers in top companies in relevant areas of interest.
