Course description

Introduction to a) engineering design through a disciplinespecific team project b) engineering problem solving through the relationship between theoretical, mathematical and computational modelling for predicting design performance, and c) the properties, and behaviours of engineering materials in design. Students will learn and apply professional engineering concepts and issues including: sustainability, safety, estimation, materials selection, decision making, project management, information literacy, communication (graphics, written, oral), ethics, and prototyping (building).

Students will also engage in a major team based multidisciplinary design project to develop first phase virtual and second phase physical prototype solutions. Students will be able to nominate a preference for system behavioural modelling using MatLab simulation software or structural modelling and CNC machining of a system component using Creo computer aided design software. The final system prototype will be physically tested to validate predicted performance in an end of session demonstration. The primary technical learning outcomes will be addressed through a combination of online learning activities and hands on collaborative tutorials and laboratories Students will require good project management, teamwork, information literacy, and communication skills. The course provides an introduction to engineering as a profession.

(This course is intended for students who commence the BE(Hons) in semester two. This course spans two semesters and students must enrol in ENGG1211 in both semester two and the following summer semester to receive a final grade for the course. Students who commence in semester one should undertake ENGG1100 in semester one and ENGG1200 in semester two.)
