General Information

Overview

This project-based learning unit will use cutting-edge computational design techniques to solve complex multidisciplinary problems in mechanical, structural and electromechanical engineering. You will formulate innovative design ideas for authentic applications and use the latest finite element simulation software to obtain accurate insights into how they will perform in practice. You will be introduced to the variational principles in statics and dynamics of structures and machines, finite element methods (FEM) and analysis procedures, principles of multivariate analysis, and parametric design optimisation techniques. You will apply these procedures to model and simulate a variety of problems at the interface of mechanical, structural, electrical and mechatronics disciplines. You will achieve hands-on experience in using an industry-standard finite element analysis software package.

Attendance Requirements

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).

Previous Student Feedback

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback from In Class

Feedback

Embed more real-world problems and case studies

Recommendation

This will be explored and more case studies will be discussed in the next offering of the unit

Feedback from In Class

Feedback

Limited access to on-campus computing facilities make it challenging to complete assessments on time

Recommendation

Explore alternative options on campuses and create access to the full version of the software

Feedback from SUTE

Feedback

Content included in the unit is vast

Recommendation

Revise the scope and depth of content in some topics
