COLLEGE : Engineering DEPARTMENT : Mechanical
COURSE CODE : ME 323/321D COURSE TITLE : Machine Elements II
FACULTY : Engr. Aldrin C. Bernardo
CONSULTATION HOURS : Lecture: 3 hours/week
Laboratory: 3 hours/week

The course deals with the study of structural components and mechanisms
that control movement in various ways such as gear trains, belt or chain drives,
linkages, cam and follower systems, including brakes and clutches. This course
aims to equip the mechanical engineering students with the fundamentals of
these design activities and give them necessary skills to prepare complete,
concise, and accurate calculation steps for machine elements.

On completion of the course, the student is expected to be able to do the

LO 1 - Identify with all the
components necessary for machine
elements and the function as each
component and as a whole
mechanical system
Highly competent LO 2 - Formulate and solve
engineering problems and apply
knowledge of mathematics and
science to solve mechanical
engineering problems

LO 3 – Determine the importance of
Ethical professional practicing ethical behaviors to
learning and academic development.
LO 4 - Design a system, component
or process to meet desired needs
within realistic constraints, in
Service-oriented accordance with standards
LO 5 - Use techniques, skills, and
modern engineering tools necessary
for mechanical engineering practice
Contribute to country’s LO 6 - Understand the impact of
mechanical engineering solutions in a
sustainable growth and
global, economic, environmental, and
