ENTA13026 - Advanced Engineering Design

General Information

Unit Synopsis

Computer-Aided Design (CAD) skills are essential for a variety of engineering professionals. In this unit, you will learn the fundamentals of engineering design and drawings using orthographic projection conventions and sectioning conventions complying with relevant engineering standards with the aid of appropriate software tools. You will develop skills in 3D solid modelling and rendering as well as producing detailed assembly drawings. As part of a team, you will design and construct 3D printed objects gaining an insight into all aspects of the design and rapid prototyping process.

Important note: Students enrolled in a subsequent unit who failed their pre-requisite unit, should drop the subsequent unit before the census date or within 10 working days of Fail grade notification. Students who do not drop the unit in this timeframe cannot later drop the unit without academic and financial liability. See details in the Assessment Policy and Procedure (Higher Education Coursework).

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).

Assessment Overview

Recommended Student Time Commitment

Each 6-credit Undergraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 12.5 hours of study per week, making a total of 150 hours for the unit.

Assessment Tasks

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Portfolio 30%
2. Project (applied) 30%
3. Project (applied) 40%

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%).

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.

Unit learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:

  1. Develop and interpret CAD drawings that use orthographic projection and sectioning conventions complying with relevant standards
  2. Scale, layout and dimension 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional CAD drawings to provide sufficient information to manufacture artefacts using a range of software tools
  3. Produce component detail and assembly CAD drawings including parts lists of artefacts to relevant standards
  4. Create a digital twin and a 3D printed prototype of an artefact
  5. Create professional documentation of the designs that conform to relevant standards individually and in teams.
