Nathan Luetke Received his BS in Mechanical Engineering Technology from Old Dominion University followed shortly after by an MS in Mechanical Engineering. While Pursuing his Masters degree Nathan spent two years at Swales Aerospace followed by one year at Lockheed Martin contracting for NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton, VA. While there he had the opportunity to perform radiation analyses and shield optimization on models of the International Space Station, possible lunar habitats and vehicles for transport to Mars in the effort to increase radiation mitigation for the astronauts and equipment. In that time he co-authored eight conference proceedings and completed his MS degree with research focused on high-speed combustion and rocket-based combined cycles.

Nathan has focused his own research on the fuel mixing and combustion characteristics of dual-mode scramjet engines, authoring and co-authoring four conference proceedings in addition to his work with radiation mitigation. Currently Nathan is a lecturer in the engineering technology department teaching CAD based courses, Thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics. He is involved with the Thermodynamic and Fluids laboratories and is interested in incorporating renewable energy systems into the lab environment.

Moustafa R. Moustafa Old Dominion University

visit author page

Professor Moustafa joined the Mechanical Engineering Technology department in August of 1979. Since then, he continuously taught, advised, guided and supervised students helping them to acquire the necessary knowledge, education, technical, ethical and communication skills. He is well respected and recognized by our graduates for his contributions resulting in their career successes.
Moustafa is in charge of the senior design project for the mechanical engineering technology department. He encourages seniors to work on practical projects. Some of these projects are provided by local industrial and manufacturing corporations as a result of personal contacts and relationships with alumni. This interaction has proven to be invaluable in the growth and development of our graduates and sometimes leads to hiring opportunities.
Moustafa has been instrumental in the development and offering of online senior classes to off campus students in support of the growing trend of distance education
Moustafa is the faculty advisor of the student chapter of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers.

Abstract

Integration of Mechatronics Design Approach into Teaching of Modeling Practices Abstract An engineering design has transformed due to advances in embedded systemdesign and computer technologies. Almost every mechanical design today hassome electrical and electronic components. Many products manufactured todaycontain both electrical and mechanical components and systems. Mechatronics is adesign process that is multi-disciplinary in nature and integrates principles of manyengineering disciplines including, but not limited to, mechanical engineering/mechanical engineering technology, electrical engineering / electrical engineeringtechnology, and controls engineering. Mechatronic systems can be found in manydifferent places today. These range from computer hard drives and roboticassembly systems to washing machines, coffee makers, printers, and medicaldevices to various advanced manufacturing machines and devices which arenumerically controlled such as additive manufacturing machines, rapid prototypingmachines and multi-axis CNC machines. The main purpose of integration ofmechatronics themed project based activity into the computer modelling course isto engage students in a project based learning through hands on activities related tomodelling a mechatronic device. Students learn about basics of electromechanicalsystems, integration of machine elements (gear reducer) and actuators (electricalmotor), all of which are fundamental to understanding mechatronic systemsthrough activities related to the mechatronic design principles, Hence, engineeringdesign for mechanical engineers and mechanical engineering technologists have toinvolve embedded multi-disciplinary knowledge with the understanding of bothmechanical and electrical systems. This paper will focus on presenting a use ofmodelling as a vehicle to teaching more complex engineering concepts such asgears, linkage analysis and animation and the solid modelling course content.
