Hours & Credits
OverviewThe design, prototyping and testing of solutions to an indentified customer need is a critical aspect of
mechanical engineering practice. This module will combine formal delivery of core concepts of the design
process, engineering practice and management, with practical design, build and test of a developed solution.
The lecture based content will focus on the areas of design methodologies, project management, presentation
skills and analytical analysis of design problems.The laboratory based activities will use examples from
bioengineering and energy related areas as platforms for the team based project. Each team will design, build
and test their preferred solution, with a component of assessment being based on the comparative performance
relative to the other teams
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.
