Course handbook

Description

This course introduces students to general procedures for solving design problems and searching for design solutions using a range of techniques. Students will build on their knowledge of engineering drawing techniques and be introduced to the assembly of machine components - limits, fits and geometric tolerance.

Learning outcomes

On successful completion of the course students will be able to:

1. Apply the fundamentals of mechanical engineering design, including detailed engineering drawing and conceptual design.

2. Apply concepts including limits and fits, size tolerances, geometric tolerances, analysis of linkages, conceptual design processes and safety in design.

3. Apply concepts to a range of examples and problems.

4. Work in a group design and build project; ie. Warman Design and Build Competition.


Content

  1. Solving engineering design problems;
  2. Creating and interpreting engineering drawings;
  3. Important aspects of the assembly of mechanical components - fits and limits, tolerance, surface finish and the like;
  4. Group project, i.e. The Warman Design-and-Build national competition;
  5. Utilise Creo to develop assembly and detailed engineering drawings.
  6. Utilise microcontroller kits to sense and control objects.
