A study of the application of descriptive measures, product sampling, organization
of data, control charts, technical problem solving, quality and reliability testing,
and quality control within technical and industrial applications
The purpose of this course is to extend students' knowledge in designing components
for manufacturability, in a concurrent mode of engineering. Topics include design
for manufacturability, design philosophy, concurrent engineering, lean manufacturing,
flexibility, standardization, cost reduction, part design, design for quality, design
for repair and maintenance.
Advance study of data communications and networking technology. The topics include
digital modulation, transmission media characteristics, interface standards, network
configurations, and testing equipment.
This course will provide an in-depth analysis of principles involved in computer-integrated
manufacturing. Emphasis will be placed on planning operations, sequence, tooling,
setup and programming NC/CNC machines and robots to design and manufacture a product.
A study of the research concepts and procedures, formulating and defining a problem,
critically reviewing the literature, writing a research proposal, developing data
collection instruments, collecting and analyzing the data, and writing the research
A study of the computer architecture, interfacing basics, programmable interface
devices, serial/parallel data communications, programmable timers, control devices
and circuits, and microprocessor interfacing.
A study of the impact of technology on individuals, society, and the environment.
The topics will include trends and development of technology, technology systems,
risk assessment, technological assessment and innovation, and managing future technologies.
An advanced study of total quality management principles and techniques and their
impact on the products' quality in organizations.
This course will review the area of system/network design, cellular concepts, resource
management, radio management, radio channel propagation fundamentals, modulation,
fading countermeasure, diversity, coding, spread spectrum, and multiple access techniques.
Although the main focus of this course is on wireless networking with an emphasis
on layers 2 and 3 of the OSI reference model, it will also focus on the design,
performance analysis and protocols of wireless networking standards. Other topics
covered includes wireless networking, digital cellular, next generation PCS, wireless
LANs, wireless ATM, and mobile IP.
