Aims/Description: The module develops both the knowledge and awareness of the student in terms of being able to make decisions based on limited data and include both ethical and economic considerations. Practical worked examples are developed which show how basic mechanical theory can be adapted and applied to `industrial' design situations. Assessment includes a design and manufacture element where each component is analysed for design functionality. This exercise enables the student to develop their CAD skills.
Restrictions on availability: Restricted to students studying degrees within the Dept of Mechanical Engineering
Notes: Part of the Accreditation by the Institution of Mechanical Engineering
