Requisite(s): 48331 Mechanics of Solids AND 48621 Manufacturing Engineering AND 48240 Design and Innovation Fundamentals
Recommended studies: 48510 Introduction to Electrical Engineering
Field of practice: Mechanical Engineering program and Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering program
This subject is the first in a set of three engineering design subjects. It builds on and brings together the concepts introduced in earlier subjects (e.g. the prerequisite subject). Topics covered include the mechanical design process, graphical presentation of engineering ideas and components, computer-aided design, engineering materials and processes and aspects of engineering knowledge. A two-phase design-and-build project is a major component of this subject.
