ENEM13013 Mechanical Systems

Course details

This project based learning course describes the behaviour and analysis of mechanical systems. Students apply knowledge of engineering science and mathematics to model and analyse mechanical systems and consider the nature of engineering assumptions and effects uncertainty on analysis and modelling. They apply control theory, design and analyse mathematical models and non-linear models, and use simulation software to predict behaviour of mechanical systems. Students apply the modelling and analysis of mechanical systems to industrial contexts, working and learning productively in teams and alone to complete projects, to develop interpersonal and technical communication skills and prepare professional documentation of problem solutions and project reports.
Distance education (FLEX) students are required to have access to a computer, to make frequent use of the Internet, and are required to participate in Residential School activities.
