Course Description

This unit covers the application of CAD modelling and data management techniques to the design of aeronautical engineering products, processes, systems or services.

Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

MEM09143A Represent aeronautical engineering designs

MEM16008A Interact with computing technology

MEM30007A Select common engineering materials

MEM30012A Apply mathematical techniques in manufacturing, engineering or related situations

National Competency Codes and Titles

National Element Code & Title:

MEM09153A Apply computer aided modelling and data management techniques to aeronautical engineering designs


1. Clarify product, process, system or service design requirements

2. Produce initial product, process, system or service CAD model

3. Validate the product, process, system or service model

4. Develop, validate, implement and file model data, production graphics and specifications and procedural documentation

Learning Outcomes

Competency in this unit includes contribution to the full design process by the creation of models, graphics, documentation, and specifications representing aeronautical engineering products, processes, systems or services in support of the planning and design processes.

Work would typically be carried out as part of a design or engineering support team. The data generated from the modelling process would be managed according to organisation procedures and contractual or agreed customer requirements.

Overview of Assessment

The assessment is conducted in both theoretical and practical aspects of the course according to the performance criteria set in the National Training Package. Assessment may incorporate a variety of methods including written/oral activities and demonstration of practical skills to the relevant industry standards. Participants are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment activities to their teacher/assessor. Feedback will be provided throughout the course. To successfully complete this course you will be required to demonstrate competency in each assessment task detailed under Assessment Tasks:

Assessment 1 (Part A and Part B): Design Improvement Report and Portfolio of evidence (consists of design folder, minute of meetings and communication folder)

Weighting towards final grade (%): 30

Assessment 2: Part A- Assignment 1 (AutoCAD)

                        Weighting towards final grade: 20%

                         Part B- Assignment 2 (SolidWorks)  
                         Weighting towards final grade: 30%

                         Part C- Class Works
                         Weighting towards final grade: 20%
