DE6102 – Engineering Project
To apply knowledge and problem-solving skills to plan and complete an engineering project relevant to the discipline strand studied (civil, mechanical, electrical or electronics) to accepted practice and standards from a given specification.
- Directed hours
- Self directed hours
- Total learning hours
- Learning Outcomes
- 1.Develop preliminary design(s), based on a given specification, for an engineering project relevant to their discipline strand (Civil, Mechanical, Electrical or Electronics)
2.Develop a plan or design parameters considering functionality, safety, environmental, cultural and ethical issues
3.Undertake well-defined planning and produce as project output
4.Produce supporting documentation relevant to project output
5.Evaluate compliance of the project output against specification
6.Present findings to an audience in a professional manner
Design process and methodology, design briefs, concepts, stakeholder requirements, alternatives, evaluation, decision making, design standards.
Producing a detailed design, design evaluation and review, identify and apply relevant design codes.
Material selection, determining and applying criteria, considering alternatives, selection, specification.
