Course handbook

Description

This course aims to further students' knowledge in the use of computer aided engineering software for solids and surface modelling, computer aided manufacturing, computation fluid mechanics, and selected topics in FEA. Students will also be familiarised with the concept of rapid prototyping and the control of a Numerically Controlled Work Centre. This course is strongly recommended if you are considering the Formula SAE project for your final year project.

Multi-term sequence

This course is part of a multi-term sequence. Both Part A and Part B must be completed to meet the requirements of the sequence. Part A and Part B must be completed in consecutive terms. Students must complete Part A before completing Part B. Students must complete the sequence within a twelve month period. If students complete Part A but are unable to complete Part B within the timeframe, they must re-enrol in Part A.


Learning outcomes

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

1. Identify engineering problems and provide solutions

2. Manage information and documentation

3. Have demonstrated creative and innovative solutions to encountered problems

4. Appreciate the issues surrounding the conduct of an engineering project

5. Communicate effectively with the engineering team and with the community at large

6. Demonstrate self-directed learning


Content

Individually supervised  projects based on knowledge acquired during the first three years of the program.

Students are responsible for:

  • reviewing current literature,
  • design of equipment/experiments/models,
  • learning/developing new techniques, and
  • implementing what they have learned to solve an engineering problem.

Assumed knowledge

Completion of all 1000, 2000, and a majority of 3000 level courses in the Mechanical Engineering program
