On-campus unit delivery combines face-to-face and digital learning.
Aims and objectives
This unit of study aims to introduce the fundamentals of material science and CAD/CAM. This includes preparing the 2-D/3-D computer-aided design (CAD) environment and generating 3-D assemblies, using modelling techniques to represent engineering components and standard parts such as bearings, keys, seals, gears and fasteners; editing and creating 2-D manufacturing drawings with section views. This knowledge is applied to create components using CAM technologies.
