Indicative content includes:
Engineering product development
- Review product design requirements through the use of tools like the requirement trees
- Apply brainstorming techniques to engineering problem solving
- Produce product design specifications that identify and prioritise design requirements and design definition
- Determine a product’s architecture, understanding the importance of geometries, dimensions and tolerances
- Understand and apply dimensional tolerances to engineering product drawings
- Integrate industrial design issues such as aesthetics and ergonomics with core engineering design concerns including functionality, and design for manufacture to design products to customer specifications
- Understand and apply calculations and estimations to evaluate unit costs for a product design
- Understand and apply calculations and estimations to evaluate the unit weight for a product design
- Communicate product designs, including drawings, solid and assembly modelling, producing product reports and making presentations
- Propose engineering designs to open ended engineering problems that are feasible in terms engineering mechanics, economics, and other competing requirements of the design
- Illustrate simple design concepts with hand drawings
- Use industry standard computational tools to aid the application of theoretical models to the quantitative design of functional systems
- Put forward reasoned arguments for how these designs address the product design specification, whilst appreciating the uncertainties and gaps in design data
- Understand how teams of engineers can work together to solve complex problems
- Communicate design ideas and solutions and the rationale behind them with sketches, detailed drawings, technical reports and presentations to various stakeholders
- Analyse the stages of an engineering design project
- Understand basic concepts of material properties and material structures.
- Have knowledge of specific material classes: metals, polymers and ceramics; and how to extend this to hybrid material classes e.g. composites and foams.
- Be familiar with concepts in materials of: selection, processing, applications in engineering, behaviour in use including: degradation, fracture and failure.
- Think about and link concepts in materials: from everyday knowledge, the underpinning science, and engineering applications; and appreciate the importance of materials understanding in all engineering disciplines.
-threshold -Equivalent to 40%.Uses key areas of theory or knowledge to meet the Learning Outcomes of the module. Is able to formulate an appropriate solution to accurately solve tasks and questions. Can identify individual aspects, but lacks an awareness of links between them and the wider contexts. Outputs can be understood, but lack structure and/or coherence.
-good -Equivalent to the range 60%-69%.Is able to analyse a task or problem to decide which aspects of theory and knowledge to apply. Solutions are of a workable quality, demonstrating understanding of underlying principles. Major themes can be linked appropriately but may not be able to extend this to individual aspects. Outputs are readily understood, with an appropriate structure but may lack sophistication.
-excellent -Equivalent to the range 70%+.Assemble critically evaluated, relevant areas of knowledge and theory to constuct professional-level solutions to tasks and questions presented. Is able to cross-link themes and aspects to draw considered conclusions. Presents outputs in a cohesive, accurate, and efficient manner.
- Demonstrate an understanding of the design process.
- Effectively apply knowledge of product development.
