In this unit students' design and teamwork skills are developed to a professional engineering standard through a series of design projects dealing with different aspects of mechanical and mechatronic design with a specific focus on manufacture. An introduction is provided to Finite Element Analysis (FEA), as a basis for calculating the induced stresses in designed components to determine the structural strength of the proposed design solutions.

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.
Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.
