2.009: Product Engineering Processes is a rigorous capstone class for undergraduates, bringing together everything students have learned along the way to develop a market-ready product.
Through emphasizing the process of discovery, instructors in course 2.001, Mechanics and Materials I, provide mechanical engineering students at MIT a foundation to build their careers on.
The first hands-on classes to teach students not only how to design an object but also how to build it.
Class 2.00a, Fundamentals of Engineering Design: Explore Space, Sea and Earth, empowers first-year students to build machines early in their academic careers at MIT.
In class 2.00b, Toy Product Design, offered by MIT’s Department of Mechanical Engineering, first-year students get hands-on engineering and product design experience while developing a prototype for a new toy.
In MIT D-Lab class 2.729, Design for Scale, MIT students work with clients in the developing world to manufacture products in a more cost-efficient and effective way – from ambulances in Tanzania to an irrigation pump in Nepal.
Mechanical engineering students from MIT work with clinicians from Boston-area hospitals to design cheaper, safer, and more efficient medical devices.
Mechanical engineering students at MIT get hands-on experience conducting a research study from start to finish during Course 2.671’s “Go Forth and Measure Project.” Students are given the freedom to research a topic that interests them – from gummy bears to heart rate and exploding pumpkins.
In this year’s Class 2.12: Introduction to Robotics, undergraduate students joined forces to build a robot that can emulate complex human movement with a soccer-theme.
2.014: Engineering System Design/Development: Take a peek inside an MIT class that has the feel and vibe of a hardware startup. The creativity, deadlines, teamwork, and passion are all here.
2.674: One of the first classes to offer undergraduates a hands-on experience with cutting-edge micro/nano engineering.
