General Information

Overview

This unit will introduce you to the basics of mechatronics and machine design, including the design process, engineering mechanics and materials, failure prevention, and characteristics of the principal elements. You will develop an understanding of standard drawings in the communication and definition of parts and assemblies in accordance with Australian Standards. In this unit, you will also learn and apply Autodesk Inventor software or equivalent for drafting and design activities.

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 Unit evaluation

Feedback

Students praised the clearness of lecture/tutorial materials and explicit explanations in the class.

Recommendation

The unit coordinator will keep making an effort to help students gain a thorough understanding of the contents.

Feedback from Unit evaluation

Feedback

Students pointed out that 3D modelling with stress analysis was useful and introduced well with various materials.

Recommendation

More step-by-step videos on 3D modelling and technical drawings will be provided. Furthermore, the unit coordinator will endeavour to provide more extensive materials for 3D modelling and technical drawings.

Feedback from Unit evaluation

Feedback

Students felt the content for the 3D CAD part was heavy in the current time frame. It was suggested that 3D modelling using Inventor could be introduced from Week 1.

Recommendation

With the new unit content, the 3D CAD components within the unit will become the main part of this unit so that 3D CAD will be introduced from the beginning and more time will be allocated.
