General Information

Overview

This unit will introduce you to the fundamentals of mechatronics element design. You will learn the design principles and rules of fundamental mechanical elements, fundamental electromechanical elements, simple power transmission elements, and complex mechatronics systems. You will also learn solid modelling and selection of electromechanical sensors and actuators. In this unit, you must complete compulsory practical activities. Refer to the Engineering Undergraduate Course Moodle site for proposed dates.

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 Students' teaching comments

Feedback

Students appreciated the bi-weekly follow-up sessions so that they could clarify questions as progressing.

Recommendation

The Unit Coordinator will make an effort to keep the level of interactions high.

Feedback from Student Unit and Teaching Evaluation

Feedback

Students felt lacking in interactions with lectures and tutorials delivered in recordings.

Recommendation

The lectures and tutorials will be delivered live in Term 2, 2021 to enhance students' engagement and interactions.

Feedback from Student Unit and Teaching Evaluation

Feedback

Students found assessment feedback was helpful and provided in a timely manner so that they were able to consolidate their understanding.

Recommendation

The Unit Coordinator will strive to provide the best possible feedback on students' assessment items for a better student learning experience.

Feedback from Self reflection

Feedback

Students could easily get lost for some of the design processes due to their tediousness.

Recommendation

The Unit Coordinator will make an effort to develop more intuitive ways for students to learn the design process of machine elements.
