Fields of practice: Mechanical Engineering program



Modern engineers do much more than apply technical knowledge to solve problems. Engineering requires a broad understanding of the problems being solved, diligent project management, communication and team work. This subject aims to extend students' competence in the design of engineered systems and components, as well as familiarising them with modern design approach methodologies. While the emphasis is on realistic engineering-team/client/boss interactions, need exploration, project development and delivery, this subject draws heavily on the expertise the students have developed up until this stage of the course. Furthermore, the subject aims to enhance and polish students' capabilities to apply engineering design processes.
