Mechanical Engineering Design I
University of Newcastle
Area of Study
Taught In English
GENG1000 Computer Aided Engineering. Students are advised that in order to use the Universities mechanical workshop for the Warman Design-and-Build competition, for safety reasons, they are required to complete the "workshop practice" component in GENG1000.
Course Level Recommendations
ISA offers course level recommendations in an effort to facilitate the determination of course levels by credential evaluators.We advice each institution to have their own credentials evaluator make the final decision regrading course levels.

OverviewGeneral procedures for solving design problems. Searching for design solutions using a range of techniques. Engineering drawing techniques. Assembly of machine components - limits, fits and geometric tolerancing. Introduction to the Australian Standards in relation to design.LEARNING OUTCOMES1. Introduce students to the fundamentals of mechanical engineering design, including detailed engineering drawing and conceptual design.2. Introduce students to limits and fits, size tolerances, geometric tolerances, analysis of linkages, conceptual design processes and safety in design.3. Enable students to apply concepts to a range of examples and problems.4. Enable students to participate in a group design and build project; ie. Warman Design and Build Competition.CONTENTAn introduction to a general procedure for solving engineering design problems;Improve student proficiency at creating and interpreting engineering drawings;Increase student awareness and understanding of some of the important aspects of an assembly of mechanicalcomponents - fits and limits, tolerancing, surface finish and the like;Participate in a group project, i.e. The Warman Design-and-Build national competition;Utilise Pro/Engineer to develop assembly and detailed engineering drawings.
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.
