This subject provides students with an understanding and appreciation of the design process in general, with particular reference to the aerospace industry. Engineering technologists are primarily concerned with the management of technology. Students must, however, be aware of the design process and the constraints and compromises involved, and this subject gives them that awareness. Topics include: the principles of design; design philosophies; design practice; design for strength; mechanical element design; introduction to FEA and CFD; concurrent engineering; design for maintainability; and aircraft design philosophies and implications, including basic aircraft strength, systems analysis and materials applications.
