48610 Introduction to Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering

6cp

Fields of practice: Mechanical Engineering program


Undergraduate

Description

The subject introduces the student to engineering sketching and drawing, computer-aided design and solid modelling, engineering design, engineering mechanics, mechanical systems and components, mechatronics, and wind power and energy conversion. Students learn to graphically represent engineering components by sketching, using drawing instruments and/or computer methods using standard representation techniques such as orthogonal projection. Students learn basic engineering mechanics and how to apply this to analyse simple machines, mechanisms and structures. Students also learn basic mechatronics principles and apply them in a mechanical system that they design and build themselves.

Typical availability
