Course

Mechanical Practice 1


Course code MEC2901

The successful practice of the profession of Mechanical Engineering requires a clear understanding of the relationship between engineering theory and engineering practice.  Some knowledge of a wide range of practical techniques, proprietary devices, materials, production and assembly methods is also necessary.  The engineer must be able to assess a complex situation to identify the critical elements and develop a workable, cost-effective solution.

This course continues the step-by-step development of these skills commenced in ENG1901 Engineering Practice 1, but with a Mechanical Engineering contest.
