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.

MECH2400: Mechanical Design 1

Aim: For students to experience a realistic the design process and to develop good engineering skills. Course Objectives- To develop an understanding of: 1) The need for and use of standard drawings in the communication and definition of parts and assemblies to AS1100; 2) Efficient use of a CAD package; 3) Creativity; 4) The design process from initial idea to finished product; 5) Methods used to analyse designs; 6) Appreciation and analysis of standard components; 7) An understanding of power transmission elements.

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

  • LO1. demonstrate your developed skills in freehand pictorial sketching, and generate and interpret engineering drawings to AS1100 Parts 101 and 201.
  • LO2. demonstrate your developed skills in writing basic engineering reports which include engineering graphics and calculations.
  • LO3. work as an individual and as part of a team to solve abstract and analytical mechanical engineering problems.
  • LO4. use basic skills in creativity and idea generation methods such as group brainstorming, analogy, inversion and lateral thinking.
  • LO5. perform basic stress and deflection analysis using referenced equations and Australian and International standards.
  • LO6. design, build and test designs that address abstract performance specifications.

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.
