On-campus unit delivery combines face-to-face and digital learning.

Aims and objectives

This unit aims to teach students how individual machine elements work, how to select and calculate them correctly for specific applications, as well as how they function in a system. Students should develop the ability to design and build complex engineering systems, understand the systemic implication of design decisions, understand design challenges and apply relevant theory to an industry project. Students will learn to design elements of (complex) mechanical systems and ensure that all of its components work seamlessly.
Unit Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this unit students will be able to:
#Unit Learning Outcome Description
ULO1Describe the basic principles of operation behind various machine elements (K1, K3, K4).
ULO2Develop basic skills in design and apply them to a design problem (K2, K3, S1)
ULO3Apply first principles to an innovative system so that it can be analytically modelled and optimised (K1, K2, K3, K4, S1, S2, S3, A3).
ULO4Identify, discuss, and generate solutions to engineering and design problems and prioritise these solutions in terms of technical, economic and environmental factors (K1, K2, K3, K4, K5, K6, S1, S2, S3, A3, A4, A6)
ULO5Document an optimised design so that it can be understood and implemented by others (K5, K6, S1, S3, A2, A5, A7).
ULO6Appraise and assess the quality of their colleagues’ project work and reflect upon their own experiences within the unit (A4, A5, A6)
ULO7Use and improve negotiation, communication, pr
