MECH206P Design and Professional Skills II (for Mechanical Engineers)
The module aims to offer the student a variety of authentic engineering problems and experiences in order to promote professional values and behaviour, and to locate Mechanical Engineering theory in a realistic context.
The topics selected for the scenarios will be related to material taught in other Year 2 modules and, where educationally appropriate, will be linked to activities such as the annual IMechE design challenges (timetable constraints permitting).
