This subject aims 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.
This subject will consider the design of machine elements and introduce the manufacturing processes to produce these elements. It will present concurrent design of systems and products; computer-based techniques for geometric modelling and materials selection. The impact of variability in manufacturing will be accounted for in approaches to uncertainty in design, including tolerance technology. It will provide project-based experience in the use of conceptual design techniques and in the management of larger open-ended, team-based design tasks.
INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES (ILOs)
On completion of this subject the student is expected to be able to:
Intended Learning Outcomes (ILOs) 1, 2, 5 and 6 will be assessed 25% by coursework and 25% by examination.
Hurdle requirement: Students must pass all assignments and the end of semester exam in order to pass the subject.
