Hours & Credits
OverviewThis module covers a wide range of mechanical engineering design subjects, including technical drawing, manual
engineering drafting, free-hand sketching, spreadsheet calculation, Computer Aided Design and Manufacture and
machine component and system design. In addition to lectures, the students spend 9 sessions in the design
laboratory getting practical experience of mechanical design problem solving, drawing, sketching and computer
aided modelling, design and manufacture. In addition, there are home work assignments on multi-view orthogonal
projection drawings as well as a computer aided design project.
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.
Please reference fall and spring course lists as not all courses are taught during both semesters.
Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
