Synopsis

A systematic method of capturing design requirements, tools for ideation, estimation and decision-making. Primary and secondary manufacturing processes, assembly techniques. Engineering graphics for problem-solving, manufacturing communication and ideation. Report writing, teamwork in solving design problems involving the integration of mechanical elements in prototype conception, construction and testing.

Outcomes

The student is expected to develop basic engineering design skills that include techniques for defining problems from open-ended specifications, tools for creating design concepts and systematic procedures for choosing between design alternatives. The student will also become aware of a range of manufacturing technologies, be able to design artifacts to suit those processes, and be able to communicate the design intent by drawings produced to the Australian Standard AS1100.
