Unit Code: PEB701

Unit Name: Design Project II

Description: This course provides you with the opportunity to carry out a real engineering project involving students from different disciplines to design and build an engineering system. The success of the project depends largely on your own initiative and working closely with your team members to develop innovative solutions. The project requires the construction of a system that can be demonstrated to required performance levels. You will be assessed at various stages of design throughout the course. The design project will include the selection, analysis, design, construction and testing of ?hardware? and ?software? so that the components and parts can be operated as one integrated system. Depending on the design of your system, in some cases this will also involve the manufacture of components, sourcing of functional parts, writing computer software and developing procedure to control system?s hardware. The specified engineering system will involve engineering design and build from multiple engineering disciplines, i.e. at least two disicplines in your team. Team members are required to contribute to the system design accordingly. Examples of specified engineering system include a remote controlled opening bridge, hydro system in small river, power supply to isolated villages, modular house construction system. The course is project based learning supported by lectures and tutorials to strengthen your knowledge in the engineering system development. You will be assessed on the unit learning outcomes through a number of assessments individually and in groups.
