Manufacturing processes, metrology and conceptual design. Introduction to CAD.
The course seeks to make students aware of effective design communications, the design decision-making process, Computer Aided Design (CAD) and the use of standard components/materials such as metric fasteners and rolled hollow sections (RHS). To achieve this, students will actively undertake Embodiment and Detailed design tasks, set in the context of the formalized design process.
