Course Description

This course introduces key computer applications that can be found in engineering technology. Applications include CAD software to produce complex CAD drawings, tools for systems modelling and simulation, and engineering design software.


Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

This course contributes to the following Program Learning Outcome (PLOs):

At Associate level this course contributes to the following program learning outcomes:
1.1 Descriptive, formula-based understanding of the underpinning natural and physical sciences and the engineering fundamentals applicable to the practice area.
1.2 Procedural-level understanding of the mathematics, numerical analysis, statistics, and computer and information sciences which underpin the practice area.
1.3 In depth practical knowledge and skills within specialist sub-disciplines of the practice area.
1.6 Understanding of the scope, principles, norms, accountabilities and bounds of contemporary engineering practice in the area of practice.
2.2 Application of technical and practical techniques, tools and resources to well defined engineering problems.
 

At Bachelor level this course contributes to the following program learning outcomes:
1.2. Conceptual understanding of the, mathematics, numerical analysis, statistics, and computer and information sciences which underpin the engineering discipline.
 


Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs):

Upon successful completion of this course you will be able to:

1. Select appropriate computer applications to store and retrieve data
2. Disseminate given information in basic and advanced PC applications
3. Identify and apply digital/computer fundamentals
4. Identify and use appropriate CAD/CATIA packages to produce complex drawings to appropriate Australian standards.
 


Overview of Learning Activities

Common activities for both Associate and Bachelor levels:
● Understanding the concepts and tools of computer applications as used in the engineering profession
● Engaging in team-based learning and practical sessions to develop the required skills and knowledge in the use of computer applications.

At Associate level you will also learn through following additional activities:
● Attending classes, working with others in the computer laboratory and doing weekly class exercises
● Preparing for and successfully completing examination
● Using web resources and an engineering design package (AutoCAD and CATIA)

At Bachelor level you will also learn through following additional activities:
● Projects
 


Overview of Learning Resources

Learning resources will consist of recommended references and class notes which may be accessed through "myRMIT" if you are in Melbourne and via "RMIT online" if you are based in Vietnam.
The set of references is deliberately broad, including books, journal publications, government reports, industry standards and handbooks, and web-based resources.
