Advanced Mechanical Design ENG723

Introduction

In this unit mechanical engineering students will design solutions to a real-world engineering problem using the engineering design process. Initial research conducted will be used to develop a set of project requirements and scope. A holistic design process will start from concept design to detail design and will include critical analysis of solutions using the FMEA approach and life-cycle assessment.
