About this Unit
This unit advances students understanding on product design and development of machine components and assemblies using systems engineering approaches. The unit covers a review on the design of main components of machinery to ensure their functionality, strength and durability, which includes drive components - gears, shafts, belt drives, and bearings, and structural components - welds and treaded fasteners. The machine assembly design is delivered based on systems engineering. Academic skills on research and communication are ensured to be achieved through conducting systems engineering approached-based mechanical system design projects.

Special Requirements - Essential Equipment
Engineering analysis package - SolidWorks available in SCEM Computer Labs
