AERO2711: Aerospace Engineering Project 1

This unit of study aims to develop deeper practical knowledge in the area of Aerospace systems engineering. Students who take this subject would be interested in developing design skills by working on the sub-system of a real satellite or launch vehicle, autonomous vehicle research, flight simulation research or advanced propulsion systems research.

Code AERO2711
Academic unit Aerospace, Mechanical and Mechatronic
Credit points 6
Assumed knowledge:
Must be enrolled in the Aeronautical stream or the Space major, have completed at least one year of study in the BE Hons, and have a WAM of 75 or higher

At the completion of this unit, you should be able to:

  • LO1. demonstrate a deeper understanding of a specific system as used in the aerospace environment
  • LO2. conduct a paper design of an aerospace component sub-system
  • LO3. apply a “systems engineering” approach to aerospace design
  • LO4. locate and apply relevant information for the design of aerospace systems
  • LO5. write up a convincing project design document
  • LO6. work and communicate effectively with your supervisor and other team members to undertake effective project management.

Unit outlines

Unit outlines will be available 2 weeks before the first day of teaching for the relevant session.
