Description of module content:

The engineering design process is a specific set of steps engineers use to organise their ideas and refine potential solutions to engineering challenges. Embarking an engineering design project is much more than simply describing the project; engineers must gain an understanding of all the issues surrounding a particular design challenge. These issues might include the need for the project, relevant social and economic conditions of the target population, and project constraints and requirements. Working through these non-technical contextual factors helps engineers generate useful, appropriate and successful design solutions.

The two packages that will be used for the practical part of the module are both industry standard tools. They will be used to reinforce the theoretical material by application to a real project. The learning process will use of extensive walkthroughs. Students are then able to use independent learning processes to quickly learn the packages and then apply them to their own particular project.

Learning Outcomes for module:

On completion of this module you will be able to:
LO1: categorise and rationalise the use engineering design techniques
LO2: analyse and discuss the stages of an engineering design project
LO3: debate and assess the Professional Skills necessary for engineering design
LO4: develop the solution to a practical design exercise using appropriate CAD tools
LO5: critically evaluate and assess the effectiveness of a design process
