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