About this Unit
This unit focuses on advanced topics in computer aided engineering and their applications in mechanical engineering in analysing a wide range of engineering problems. The objective of this unit is to advance students’ knowledge and skill level on the finite element method (FEM)-based computer aided engineering (CAE) and its advanced applications in the fields of solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics and heat transfer and product design and development as well. Academic skills on research and communication are ensured to be achieved through conducting FEM-based CAE projects.

Special Requirements - Essential Equipment
Finite element analysis packages - Abaqus, ANSYS and SolidWorks
