All details in this unit profile for ENAM12006 have been officially approved by CQUniversity and represent a learning partnership between the University and you (our student).
The information will not be changed unless absolutely necessary and any change will be clearly indicated by an approved correction
included in the profile.
This unit introduces you to the relationship between material properties, structure, and functional performance of mechanical components such as gears, shafts, bearings, fasteners etc. You will apply material selection to determine the load for individual machine elements. Subsequently, you will learn to determine the shape and sizes of components by the way of comprehensive analysis, estimation, and selection. You will select and specify common mechanical components like drive line, shafts, axles, gears, bearings, mechanical fasteners, and other relevant parts and modules complying with the relevant standards and codes. You will specify fits and tolerances, and finishes required for mechanical components.

Offerings For Term 2 - 2023
All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes –
in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory.
International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet
both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period
(satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).
