|Subject Overview:|| |
Engineering Systems Design 1 introduces students to the world of engineering through a mix of design projects, interactive workshops and lectures. This subject centres on the engineering method, the approach to problem solving and engineering design that makes engineers unique. The subject will prepare students for an exciting and rigorous engineering education that will allow them to serve an increasingly complex society.
This subject features designing a solution to a real-world challenge using skills from disciplines such as fluid mechanics, chemical engineering, water treatment, aerospace engineering, mathematical modelling and computer simulation.
The engineering profession, engineering disciplines, problem solving, engineering method, mathematical modelling using appropriate software tools, data gathering, data analysis, fluid mechanics, conservation of material and energy in engineering processes, mass transport in two phase flow, report writing, communication skills.

INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES (ILOs)
On completion of this subject the student is expected to:
* The indicated individual assessment items (totalling 45%) are a combined hurdle requirement.
** Students work in teams of 5-6 on these indicated assessments and thus the workload is expected to be divided equally within the team.
|Breadth Options:|| |
This subject potentially can be taken as a breadth subject component for the following courses:
You should visit learn more about breadth subjects and read the breadth requirements for your degree, and should discuss your choice with your student adviser, before deciding on your subjects.

LEARNING AND TEACHING METHODS
The key element of the subject is the series of workshops that take place throughout the semester. Students work in teams to complete a series of projects, gathering and analysing data, and designing, building and testing a solution to an engineering challenge. The lectures support the workshop activities.
Students will have access to lecture notes and lecture slides. The subject LMS website also has additional resources including readings.
This is the first engineering subject that most students will normally undertake. It starts building some of the key skills that employers look for when recruiting graduates.
