You'll learn the basics of mechanical engineering, focusing on the automotive industry.
All engineering students will also study an Introduction to Engineering course, incorporating a humanitarian-focused Engineers Without Borders Challenge. You'll have the opportunity to extend this aspect of your studies by completing an Engineers Without Borders elective, enabling you to experience humanitarian engineering first-hand.
You'll tackle and solve advanced engineering problems, particularly in the structural design and manufacturing of vehicles and automotive components. This represents the basis for the analysis and solution of problems related to modern automotive sustainable design and manufacturing, and advanced computer modelling techniques.
While continuing your studies in maths, mechatronics, mechanics, and dynamics, you'll also undertake a Project Based Learning (PBL) course which concentrates on the study of machine elements and their incorporation into simple machines.
You'll deepen your knowledge in mechanical engineering.
A highlight includes vehicle power systems which is an introduction to the development, design, specification, and operation of internal combustion engines for mobile applications, with a focus on traditional spark-ignited and diesel engines. It also covers alternative power plants and fuels.
In addition to elective studies, you'll also learn about vehicle handling and control, which covers performance prediction relatively early in the design process, and identifies the conflicts in designing for optimal performance in different models.
Your final-year (capstone) project will develop and reinforce the skills and knowledge you need - as defined by Engineers Australia - to commence your professional engineering career.
