Course aim

This course provides opportunities for students to build and extend a range of personal and professional skills. They will solve practical engineering design problems and recognise the roles of systems thinking, innovation and creativity in the design process. This course will help students to develop visual communication skills such as understanding and producing 2D engineering drawings and 3D engineering models.

Course content

Lectures and tutorials will introduce students to the exciting and complex world of engineering design and innovation. Activities and projects will help students to explore engineering problem solving, basic systems engineering concepts, creativity tools, engineering design process, project management principles, professional reflections, effective teamwork, principles of safe design, link between ethics and creativity, and developing oral, written, and visual communication skills.

This course will also develop 2D and 3D visualisation skills, which are essential to communicating designs. This includes; orthographic projections; isometric views; techniques for solid modelling; engineering drawing and dimensioning to AS1100 – abbreviations, drawing sheet layout; line types and text size; view placement; reference dimensions; tolerance accumulation; dimensioning rules; section views; and drawing revisions; detailing welds and surface texture; limits and fits and linear and geometric tolerancing. SolidWorks – basic (sketch, extrude and cut) and advanced modelling (patterns, equations, loft, sweep), creating assemblies, drawings, bills of materials, adding motion, photo rendering and saving animations.
