This course is designed to mimic an industrial design problem as closely as practical in a university setting. Students are assigned to teams and given an ill-defined problem statement for a complex engineering system. From the problem statement, the students are responsible for developing the full set of requirements and key performance indicators to guide the design. The students then proceed through a systems design process including conceptual design, sub-system requirements, and quantitative trade-off analyses. The course emphasises teamwork, communication skills (formal and informal, written and oral), and team and personal management and a professional approach to engineering design.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

The intended learning outcomes are:

  • To consolidate existing knowledge of engineering design practices
  • To apply existing or new technical knowledge to formulate suitable solutions to a broad and complex design problem and justify the selection
  • To practice project management and organisational skills in producing deliverables on schedule
  • To develop skills in presenting technical information through written and verbal reports
  • To experience functioning effectively as an individual, and within a multi-disciplinary group, to achieve a practical engineering outcome
  • To reflect on your role as an engineer within a interdisciplinary team and consider the required professional attributes

Indicative Assessment

Project Concept Document (10%); Project plan and timeline (10%); Requirements Report (20%); Ideas review (15%), Design Report (30%); Design Presentation (15%).

The grade for each team member will be moderated around the group grade based on the review of the Individual Performance Review Document (IPRD).

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
