We are aiming for an incremental return to campus in accordance with guidelines provided by NSW Health and the Australian Government. Until this time, learning activities and assessments will be planned and scheduled for online delivery where possible, and unit-specific details about face-to-face teaching will be provided on Canvas as the opportunities for face-to-face learning become clear.

We are currently working to resolve an issue where some unit outline links are unavailable. If the link to your unit outline does not appear below, please use the link in your Canvas site. If no link is available on your Canvas site, please contact your unit coordinator.

Unit of study_

MECH1400: Mechanical Construction

Learn about selected historical events, research methods, analysis techniques, application of theory and analysis to real machinery, use of machine and hand tools. This is a project based subject where the students will design, build and test their own designs. Historical developments in the area of the project are researched and applied and research into relevant fields is required to fully understand and analyse the project problem. The unit ties in with workshop component of MECH1560. Skills developed become relevant in MECH2400 Mechanical Design 1

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

  • LO1. apply statics, dynamics and thermodynamics analysis methods to real design problems
  • LO2. undertake a simple design and build project from conception to completion
  • LO3. apply theory and analysis to real machinery, use of machine and hand tools
  • LO4. demonstrate basic workshop skills, learning to use machine tools for production of complex parts
  • LO5. undertake research into existing design as part of developing new design
  • LO6. place the mechanical engineering profession in historical context
  • LO7. use self-reflection and critical thinking to improve your learning skills.

Unit outlines

Unit outlines will be available 2 weeks before the first day of teaching for 1000-level and 5000-level units, or one week before the first day of teaching for all other units.

There are no unit outlines available online for previous years.
