MECH2400: MECHANICAL DESIGN 1

Semester 2, 2015 | 6 Credit Points | Mode: Normal-Day


Sessions Valid: Semester 2
Coordinator(s): Paul Briozzo
WARNING: This unit version is currently under review and is subject to change!
1. INTRODUCTION
Aim: For students to experience a realistic the design process and to develop good engineering skills.
Course Objectives: To develop an understanding of:
1. The need for and use of standard drawings in the communication and definition of parts and assemblies to
AS1100.
2. Efficient use of a CAD package.
3. Creativity.
4. The design process from initial idea to finished product.
5. Methods used to analyse designs.
6. Appreciation and analysis of standard components.
7. An understanding of power transmission elements.
