OverviewDescriptionThis subject builds on and brings together the concepts introduced in earlier subjects, such as 48600 Mechanical Design 1, 48610 Introduction to Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering, and 48620 Fundamentals of Mechanical Engineering, along with the technical knowledge built up until this stage of the course. It provides a link between engineering science and practice, and focuses on the technical aspects of engineering design, for instance, identifying and conducting the relevant engineering analysis and subsequently making appropriate technical level design decisions and recommendations.Subject objectivesUpon successful completion of this subject students should be able to:1. Apply engineering knowledge and science in real world?practice2. Extend beyond their technical basis and understand and appreciate the scope of design choice in an engineering context3. Confidently apply their professional and technical background to identify areas requiring attention4. Critique the engineering work of peers and subsequently improve said work through doing so5. Conduct the relevant technical analysis to back their recommendationsAssessmentAssessment task 1: Quizzes x4Weight: 60%Criteria:The quizzes will utilize the sections of ?Junior Engineer?s Design Proposal? that were covered in the preceding 1-3 week?s lectures and tutorials. The quiz will then probe the engineering analysis, and/or design choices, and/or design approach in a directed manner. The student will be expected to critique and/or complete the analysis in the ?Junior Engineer?s Design Proposal? and critique and/or extrapolate the recommendations contained in the reports, and answer a number of fundamental questions surrounding the topic area/s covered in the preceding 1-3 week?s lectures and tutorials.The quizzes will be conducted through UTS Online and under exam conditions. Quiz dates will be confirm during the course.Assessment task 2: Assignments x2Weight: 40%Criteria:There will be a total of 2 assignments, both worth 20% of the subject. The format of the assignments is similar to the quizzes, however, the scope and expectations of the assignments are larger as the assignments are of a higher weighting and are to be completed in groups; although advanced submission will occur individually.The assignments will utilize the sections of ?Junior Engineer?s Design Proposal? that were covered in the preceding 6-7 week?s lectures and tutorials. The assignment will then probe the engineering analysis, and/or design choices, and/or design approach in a directed manner. The student will be expected to critique and/or complete the analysis in the ?Junior Engineer?s Design Proposal? and critique and/or extrapolate the recommendations contained in the reports.Advanced individual submission of the assignments will take the form of a UTS Online submission quiz which is extensively based on the material covered in its associated assignment. Students may bring their printed copy of there assignment to the submission session, it is the expectation that the advanced submission will be largely an exercise in transcription however there will be an element of novelty to insure that the individual is competent in the material. Further details, and confirmation of due dates of individual assessments, will be supplied during the course.Minimum requirementsThe pass mark is 50, all assessments must be attempted in order to be eligible to pass.
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.
