Engineering design reports, design for fatigue, fasteners, welded joints, cranes: use of engineering codes, pressure vessel design, hydraulic machinery and sustainability in manufacturing.

This course will cover more in-depth engineering design methods than ENME301 and cover procedures that are not included in the engineering science subjects.

The subject matter will have a core mechanical design focus, with additional experience in calculation sets and drawing presentation. In particular it covers fatigue in steel structures, the use of standards, pressure vessel design, and sustainability in manufacturing using Life Cycle Analysis (LCA).

Overall students are brought to a level where they can undertake a substantial mechanical engineering design problem, in a methodical manner, and can produce a professional quality design report.
