Professor Henry has taught ME4315, which is a senior undergraduate course for mechanical engineering majors entitled “Energy Systems Analysis and Design”. The course is largely project based and consists of students gaining exposure to emerging energy technologies by working in groups to design the associated systems. This helps students build a deep appreciation for the various trade-offs between cost and performance and their respective levels of severity in different contexts.
Professor Henry taught ME3720, which is an undergraduate course for non-mechanical engineering majors entitled “Introduction to Fluid and Thermal Engineering”. Professor Henry’s approach to teaching is heavily rooted in giving students a strong fundamental understanding of the physics that underlies thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and heat transfer, with an emphasis on real world problem solving.
Professor Henry serves as a faculty advisor for the micro-nano engineering track, which is one of the mechanical engineering school’s undergraduate concentrations. This is a video of Professor Henry providing an overview of the concentration.
Professor Henry believes strongly in giving back to the community and providing underrepresented minorities with opportunities to develop their technical skills and cultivate an interest in science and/or engineering. Professor Henry hosts high school teachers and high school students to come work with the ASE group and gain exposure to an intense and exciting research environment.
