Fundamentals of Gear Design

Develop your understanding of the history, basic gear tooth nomenclature, types of gears, gear arrangements, theory of gear tooth action, and failure modes and prevention. This course was recently updated and expanded to comprehensively cover important topics relating to gear system design consideration.

This course can be applied to the Gear Technology Certificate.

Benefits and Learning Outcomes

  • Build your knowledge of modern gear system design and analysis
  • Be able to distinguish between types of gears and gear arrangements
  • Discuss theory of gear tooth action, and derive parameters as they’re presented


A knowledge of geometry, trigonometry, and elementary algebra is required. Basic strength of materials is helpful but not essential.

All sessions are Face-to-Face unless otherwise noted.
