Waste and Biomass Energy Conversion
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, Aud
Prerequisite: Must have completed undergraduate courses in thermodynamics and heat transfer.
Restriction: Permission of Maryland Applied Graduate Engineering.
The overall objective of this course is to develop a toolkit to evaluate the energy security - and in particular, the environmental energy security - of available energy resources and conversion technologies, including those in current use, and those that might be used in the foreseeable future. Energy security is evaluated using a simple three-dimensional model based in the academic literature. This is an engineering class, and while we must occasionally delve into related economics and policy issues, we will focus on the core technical competencies in energy conversion needed to navigate the current world of energy.
Applied Finite Element Methods
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, Aud
Restriction: Must not have completed ENME674; and must not have completed ENAE652.
Credit only granted for: ENME674, ENAE652, or ENPM652.
Introduces the Finite Element Method (FEM), widely used to perform analyses in areas such as structural/solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, heat transfer. This course presents an introduction to the mathematical and physical concepts underpinning the FEM framework. Additionally, ANSYS Workbench software will be used to demonstrate engineering-scale examples for stress and thermal analysis problems. There are no formal requirements for this course although students will benefit from a familiarity with basic concepts in linear algebra, calculus, differential equations, solid mechanics, and heat transfer.
Energy Systems Management
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, Aud
Recommended: Background in thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer is recommended.
Covers a wide range of energy management and energy efficiency topics including energy auditing, energy efficient lighting systems and motors, demand limiting and control, control strategies for optimization, direct digital control, integrated building automation systems, communication networks, distributed generation, cogeneration, combined heat and power, process energy management and the associated economic analyses. Included will be the latest internet based technologies for accessing real-time energy pricing and managing energy demand remotely for multiple buildings or campuses.
Digital Forensics and Incidence Responses
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, Aud
Prerequisite: Experience with both Windows and Unix-based operating systems, including using the command line.
Students will implement a robust incident response methodology, including proper forensic handling of evidence, and cover legal aspects of national and international law regarding forensics. The bulk of the course covers evidence acquisition, preservation, analysis and reporting on multiple platforms.
Introductory Robot Programming
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, Aud
Restriction: Permission of Maryland Applied Graduate Engineering.
Credit only granted for: ENPM809Y or ENPM702.
Formerly: ENPM809Y .
This hands-on course will introduce students to the C++ programming language and is specifically designed for students who have had little to no programming experience in their previous studies.
