Mechanical Practice 2


Course code MEC2902

In this course the synthesis of new ideas is developed whilst you participate in a team-based design and build activity.

The course falls naturally into three parts: design activity where a design concept is developed, procurement of resources and construction of a device to meet the design specified in part 1, and the testing of the device.
