Design of Machine Elements


Course code MEC2301

Design is one of the most important engineering functions for it is through design that new products and processes are born and that old ones are improved.

Design requires a breadth of knowledge extending over many areas, and a sound analytical ability.  It requires an ability to recognise the phenomena involved and to synthesise an integrated solution.  Design requires sound engineering judgement as well as a good grasp of the underlying basic science and mathematics.

This course aims to integrate the knowledge that you have gained earlier in the qualification and focus your analytical skills towards synthesis of solutions by working through the design of several simple, commonly used devices.
