National Element Code & Title:
VBH139 Aerospace Engineering Design Project
1. Produce a design and development brief of options for ‘approval to proceed’.
2. Design an aerospace engineering solution from a clients brief to involve standard and proven design techniques and to comply with airworthiness requirements.
3. Draw preliminary general arrangements, design and detail drawings.
4. Prepare a written report on the design project.
5. Present technical information orally.
Details of Learning Activities
The purpose of this module is to provide competency based training in a broad based aerospace engineering design skills. This module encompasses elements of: Project management; client liaison; preliminary and other design options; tender documentation and procedures; detail and final engineering design; technical reporting and presentation; airworthiness certification processes.
The delivering of the course is blended modes of lectures, tutorials, lab testing, presentation and design and development of overall project.
The module facilitates articulation into Aerospace and Engineering degree courses.

Class notes and exercises
Overview of Assessment
Assessment consists of one major project consisting of Group-based work, Critical Design Review, Structural Design Review, Final Design Report) and Group presentation.
Participants are required to complete all the assessment tasks to pass the course.
Assessment Item 1 (5%): Lab material testing involvement (Compulsory attendance for all group members)
Assessment Item 2 (5%): Lab material testing report
Assessment Item 3 (10%): Class Presentation (Compulsory attendance for all group members)
Assessment Item 4 (70%): Written Report
Assessment Item 5 (10%): Group Peer Review
As all assessment items involve group work contribution, all members within the group will receive the same grade. If team members believe that a member has not contributed equally and deserves the group assessment grade, a detailed report in writing is to be submitted to Elke Ferraro by Friday 26th October 2007. No individual projects will be accepted.
PA 50 – 59%
CR 60 – 69%
DI 70 – 79%
Students are reminded that cheating, whether by fabrication, falsification of data, or plagiarism, is an offence subject to University disciplinary procedures. Plagiarism in oral or written presentations is the presentation of the work, idea or creation of another person, without appropriate referencing, as though it is one’s own. Plagiarism is not acceptable.
The use of another person’s work or ideas must be acknowledged. Failure to do so may result in charges of academic misconduct which carry a range of penalties including cancellation of results and exclusion from your course.
Students are responsible for ensuring that their work is kept in a secure place. It is also a disciplinary offence for students to allow their work to be plagiarised by another student. Students should be aware of their rights and responsibilities regarding the use of copyright material. It is strongly recommended that students refer to the RMIT 2001 Guidelines for Students or to the RMIT University Homepage.
