Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

MIET2093 Computer Aided Design, or equivalent


Course Description

In this course you will study manufacturing and assembly technologies that are relevant to the design of aerospace components. This includes the capabilities, limitations and cost considerations of manufacturing and assembly in aerospace component design. You will also learn to identify advantages and limitations of the various manufacturing processes and the impact of material properties. Computer-based tutorials in this course will further your capabilities of computer aided design in manufacturing and assembly.

 


Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

This course contributes to the following program learning outcomes of the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours):

  • Understanding of the scope, principles, norms, accountabilities and bounds of contemporary engineering practice in the specific discipline
  • Application of systematic engineering synthesis and design processes


Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs)

Upon successful completion of the course, you should be able to:

  1. Describe the role of manufacture and assembly within the overall aerospace design process
  2. Evaluate and select manufacturing and assembly processes relevant to the aerospace industry
  3. Quantify cost and metrics for manufacturing and assembly processes relevant to the aerospace industry
  4. Review and select suitable manufacturing and assembly processes for a complex, well-defined aerospace component
  5. Assess the risks of manufacturing processes, consistent with the expected responsibilities and accountabilities of a professional engineer to manage risk.
  6. Design a complex, well-defined aerospace component accounting for manufacture and assembly.
