This subject includes two units which together aim to equip students with the skills to undertake abstract and concrete design tasks at an intermediate level, taking into account the wider engineering environment and the ability to select suitable manufacturing processes to realise their designs. As a result, students will also be able to modify products and processes to improve their performance.
On completion of this subject students should be able to -
Two 2-hour end-of-semester examinations (55%)
Four team-based projects, not exceeding 3,000 words (excluding computations, tables, graphs, diagrams) per student (25%) due in weeks 4, 7, 10 and 12 of the semester.
Three laboratory assignments throughout semester, not exceeding 2,000 words (excluding computations, tables, graphs, diagrams) per student (20%).
Students must obtain a mark of at least 40% for all continuing assessment tasks in order to pass the subject.
