ENG 1102 course will cover: engineering design methodology; features and elements of good design with environment and human interface considerations; aesthetics in design and idea communication using graphics and technical drawings.
Course Learning Outcomes:
Upon completion of course, students are expected to learn and retain the following concepts and skills:
- Formulate a design problem based on researching and understanding customer needs
- Apply the engineering design process to conceptualize alternate design solutions to satisfy identified customer needs
- Develop acceptable design solutions based on design rules, principles & guidelines (e.g., design for quality, ease of manufacturing, environmental sustainability)
- Compare alternate design solutions against a framework developed using engineering design principles (e.g., Axiomatic design approach)
- Evaluate solutions, using a variety of contexts: ergonomics, aesthetics, and basic commercial factors (e.g., cost and intellectual property)
- Create simple freehand sketches, pictorial sketches, and orthographic sketches to illustrate details of a conceptual design or a given product
This course provides an introduction to the principles & practices of engineering design. The three main themes to be covered are:
(1) Engineering design methodology;
(2) Features and elements of good design with human interface considerations;
(3) Idea communication using graphics.
