- An increased skillset in the conceptual design methodology
- An ability to conceive and produce a robotic device to solve deterministic problems
Availability2021 Course Timetables
- Semester 1 - 2021
- Trimester 2 - 2021 (Singapore)
On successful completion of the course students will be able to:
1. Apply the fundamentals of mechanical engineering design, including modelling, engineering drawings and conceptual design.
2. Apply concepts including limits and fits, size tolerances, geometric tolerances, conceptual design processes and safety in design.
3. Demonstrate safe working practices in a workshop environment.
4. Work in a group design and build project; ie. Warman Design and Build Competition.
- Solving engineering design problems;
- Important aspects of the assembly of mechanical components - fits and limits, tolerance, surface finish and the like;
- Group project, i.e. The Warman Design-and-Build national competition;
- Utilise microcontroller kits to sense and control objects.
- Basic workshop practice techniques and application of the basic skills to undertake a project.
To comply with Occupational Health and Safety regulations, students are required to have basic Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) from Week 1 which will cost a minimum of $60. Specific requirements are available on the MECH2110 Blackboard site.
ENGG1003/GENG1003 due to programming involved in the mechatronics labs.
MECH1110 Introduction to Mechanical Engineering Design so students have developed skills in interpreting and visualising 3D objects in 2D format and advanced technical sketching skills.

* This assessment has a compulsory requirement.
In order to pass this course, each student must complete ALL of the following compulsory requirements:
General Course Requirements:
- Workshop: Induction Requirement - Students must attend and pass the induction requirements before attending these sessions. - Workshop Induction Requirement - Students must attend and pass the induction requirements before attending these sessions. Workshop Induction: Induction to the workshop is compulsory in Week 1. Failure to attend the induction session will block entry to the workshop and therefore prevent completion of MECH2110. As a result of this, enrolments into MECH2110 cannot be accepted once the opportunity to complete the induction sessions in Week 1 has passed. Students must participate in one workshop session per week to complete MECH2110. When an absence is unavoidable and substantiated, students must liaise with the workshop coordinator to swap their session attendance for that week.
Course Assessment Requirements:
- Quiz: Minimum Grade / Mark Requirement - Students must obtain a specified minimum grade / mark in this assessment item to pass the course. - The lathe and welding risk management quiz also forms a component of the workshop competency portfolio where students must achieve at least 80% in this assessment item to pass MECH2110.
- Quiz: Minimum Grade / Mark Requirement - Students must obtain a specified minimum grade / mark in this assessment item to pass the course. - The hand tool risk management quiz also forms a component of the workshop competency portfolio where students must achieve at least 80% in this assessment item to pass MECH2110.
