IMEC-3530 Diseño de Sistemas Mecánicos

The design of mechanical systems is the activity in which a Mechanical Engineer uses the principles of science to develop a product. This product can be a structure, a mechanism, a machine, a plant, etc., that satisfies the needs or desires of a customer. Such need define the design objective, requirements, restrictions, and/or criteria. Additionally, the system’s operating conditions and the capital available for its development must be considered.,English,- The purpose of this course is to expose the students to the conditions under which mechanical systems are designed in a professional environment. Engineering problems must be solved in teams using the best information available, within a certain timestamp and with a limited budget. With this in mind, the course’s projects will be developed by teams of students.
