This unit aims to further develop engineering analysis and design knowledge and skills within a muliti-disciplinary context to design and build a prototype. You will work in a team to analyse a problem in terms context, dilemma and objective, develop a conceptual design and prototype. You will engage with a design competition that provides the potential for you to progress to a National final.
