  1. RITMechanical Engineering Mechanical Engineering … We Design The Future

  2. Dr. Ghoneim 475-#### Graduated from Cairo University (Egypt); PhD from Rutgers University (1982) Research interest: Computational mechanics, Thermo-viscoplasticity, and vibration damping and control. Currently I am working on: analysis of a flexible damping composite coupling, and marine propulsion via oscillatory beams.

  3. More on Dr. Ghoneim… Hobbies: Soccer (Professional player 1975-1976), snorkeling, and Racquet ball; and Reading. Office Hours: Monday 3:00-4:00 Tuesday 1:00-2:00 Thursday 1:00-2:00 Friday 11:00-12:00

  8. Fast Facts about the RIT ME Department • First Accredited by ABET in 1968 • Kate Gleason College of Engineering – The Only Engineering College in the USA Named after a woman. • 30+ Faculty in the Department • Over 700 Undergraduate Students • ~80 Graduate and Dual Degree Students • 134 Entering first year students (direct to ME) • One of the most competitive entry programs at RIT

  9. Educational Objectives The objectives of the Bachelor of Science degree program in Mechanical Engineering at Rochester Institute of Technology are to prepare all of our graduates to: • Apply fundamental knowledge, skills, and tools of mechanical engineering. • Practice mechanical engineering in support of the design of engineered systems. • Accept the professional and ethical responsibilities to function as an engineer. • Contribute and communicate effectively within and across teams. • Continue their development as lifelong learners. • Possess a broad education and knowledge of contemporary issues.

  10. Educational Objectives And, to prepare some of our graduates to • Work as engineers in aerospace, bioengineering, automotive, or energy industries. • Enter graduate programs and succeed in obtaining graduate degrees at the Master’s and/or Ph. D. level.

  11. Student Handbook Review • ME Department Undergraduate Handbook is your guide • Please read this handbook carefully • Use this handbook when you meet with your advisor to plan your academic program • Use the BS Degree checklist and Liberal Arts checklist, and update it each quarter • Keep copies of AP/Transfer Credit/Co-op Evaluations in this folder • Read and understand the academic conduct policy, and the computer use policy – we take these very seriously! • Refer to the course withdrawal procedure in the appendix • AP Credit sheets will be in your mail folder, please save your copies in the pocket of your handbook

  12. Liberal Arts Worksheet • Start working on your liberal arts worksheet now! • You must satisfy both the CORE and CONCENTRATION Requirements! • Your Liberal Arts Worksheet needs to be approved by Liberal Arts Office of Academic Advising, not by Mechanical Engineering! • Must have SAT 560V or higher for Writing

  13. BS Degree Checklist • Keep it updated each quarter and bring it with you when you talk to your advisor

  14. Course Equivalencies • Advanced Placement Credit • Transfer Credit • Project Lead The Way Credit • IB Credit • Questions?? Missing credit?? • Ask Diane Selleck

  15. Co-op Block

  16. Course Withdraw Procedures • Discuss your situation with your Academic Advisor. If they agree, ask them to fill a Recommendation for Withdrawal form. • Discuss your situation with the Course Instructor. If they agree, fill out a Course Withdrawal form and have them sign it. • Schedule a 15 minute appointment with Dr. Nye, to explain your reasoning, and your plan for catching up on your course work. Bring both Withdrawal forms! • If all advisors agree, then Diane will withdraw you from the class. • DO NOT USE “W” AS A CRUTCH. USE THIS TOOL SPARINGLY DURING YOUR CAREER! • “W” will appear on your permanent transcript. MUST BE DONE BY THE END OF WEEK SIX!!!

  17. Pre-Registration for Spring • There will be a hold on your account, that keeps you from registering for classes. • This hold will be removed after you have talked with your advisor, and have shown them your proposed spring schedule.

  18. Academic Dishonesty(from the KGCOE Student Handbook) • Any act of improperly representing another person's work as one's own is construed as an act of academic dishonesty. • These acts include but are not limited to plagiarism in any form, including the use of all or parts of computer programs created by others, or the use of information and materials not authorized by the instructor during an examination.

  19. Academic Dishonesty(from the KGCOE Student Handbook) • If a faculty member judges a student to be guilty of some form of academic dishonesty, the student may be given a failing grade for that piece of work or for the course, depending upon the severity of the misconduct.

  20. Degrees and Options Offered • Bachelor of Science (BS) • Aerospace Engineering Option • Automotive Engineering Option • Bioengineering Option • Energy and the Environment Option • Advanced (Graduate) Certificate in Vibrations Engineering • Master of Science (MS) • Master of Engineering (MEng)

  21. Academic Assistance Resources • Academic Advisor • Faculty – Course Instructor • Engineering Learning Center • Academic Support Center • KGCOE Office of Student Services • Counseling Center • Math Lab/ Physics Lab/ Writing Lab
