48610 Introduction to Mechanical Engineering6cp; Forms of attendance and mode of delivery in this subject have changed to enable social distancing and reduce the risks of spreading COVID-19 in our community.
The subject introduces the student to engineering sketching and drawing, computer-aided design and solid modelling, engineering design, engineering mechanics, mechanical systems and components. 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 engineering management tools and apply them in designing and building a mechanical system.
