Blog posts have been hard to come by in the last few weeks, mostly because I’ve been heavily involved in school. Since the year is done, I’m hoping to get more posts to the site, mostly from a few projects I’m hoping to work on.

In case you’re interested in what courses are involved in becoming schooled in the art of Mechanical Engineering, here are the courses I’ve had to take over 3 years of school.

### Semester 1

Calculus 1

Linear Algebra

Physics 1

Computer Programming

Chemistry

### Semester 2

Calculus 2

Physics 2

Physics 3

Engineering Design

Materials Science 1

### Semester 3

Communications

Dynamics

Manufacturing 1

Statics and Mechanics of Materials

Materials Science 2

### Semester 4

Engineering Economics

Thermodynamics 1

Mechanics of Machines

Stress Analysis

Manufacturing 2

Numerical Analysis

### Semester 5

Thermodynamics 2

Fluid Mechanics 1

Mechanics of Machines

Electric Circuits

Mechanics of Deformable Bodies

Statistics

### Semester 6

Fluid Mechanics 2

Heat Transfer

Electric Circuits 2

Controls

Finite Element Analysis

These classes mostly deal with math, physics, material selection, and fluid behaviour. In the three years, not much time was spent designing actual products, so I hope we do more of that in fourth year.
