This module offers students 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 module comprises four professional design projects (scenarios) designed to complement and, where appropriate, extend the learning opportunities afforded by the modules running throughout Year 2.
Students are posed authentic engineering challenges intended to explore different aspects of the design cycle and to simulate real-world, professional practice.
The scenarios will be supplemented by materials, classes and/or online materials provided by the Faculty of Engineering Sciences and external sources as appropriate.
Each scenario will consider combination of a wider range of issues than in Year 1 including legal aspects, management, systems and ethics.
The topics selected for the scenarios will be related to material taught in the lectures and in other Year 2 modules. Where educationally appropriate, they will be linked to activities such as the annual IMechE design challenges (timetable constraints permitting).
Topics covered in the lectures include:
Upon successful completion of the module, students will be able to:
