The successful practice of the profession of Mechanical Engineering requires a clear understanding of the relationship between engineering theory and engineering practice. An ability to recognise when a particular theory is applicable and an ability to accommodate the deviations from the theory that occur in the real world is essential. Some knowledge of a wide range of practical techniques, propriety devices, materials, production and assembly methods is also necessary. The engineer must be able to assess a complex situation to identify the critical elements and develop a workable, cost-effective solution. This all requires considerable self-confidence, and the ability to work in and also lead a team. This course continues the step by step development of these skills commenced in ENG1901 Engineering Practice 1 but within a Mechanical Engineering context.
This course presents a series of activities designed to develop specific skills and knowledge relevant to Mechanical Engineering. These activities are to be carried out on an individual or small group basis.
This course contains a mandatory residential school for external students and mandatory on-campus laboratories or practical classes for on-campus students.
