Aims

To develop the students' ability to consider: the design process; manufacturing methods, and material selection, all "concurrently". The students will be introduced to solid modelling software (Autodesk Inventor) which will not only be used to generate 3D models but also 2D technical drawings. The module will be assessed entirely by project based assignments.
