Mechanical Engineering Design, Modelling and Drafting skill set

State ID: GAB97

Take your career in engineering design to the next level

The skill set will offer you the analytical and practical design skills to understand mechanical industry standards and software.

Discover how to use tools like Solidworks simulation and CAE to construct and analyse design and evaluate its performance to Australian standards and codes. Use your designs to develop detailed schedules for workflow management and collaboration across teams or support functional groups.

This course is ideal for FIFO workers - talk to us about how you can study this course flexibly.

Gain these skills:

  • Knowledge of engineering-related analysis processes and techniques to investigate, synthesise and develop proposals, evaluate feasibility against criteria such as quality, cost efficiency, safety, and innovation 
  • To model/prototype to test and then reworked as necessary until an acceptable outcome is achieved in addition to exploring a variety of functions such as collision and interference detection
  • Simulating various load conditions (static and dynamic) to determine the strength and stiffness of members/assembly by reporting component stress, strain, deformations, shear and torsion
  • Drafting, scheduling and the production of detail drawings and specifications for mechanical assembly and commissioning
  • Project manage the complete life cycle of the design process including conception and initiation, planning, execution, performance/monitoring, and project close

Dates in 2021:

Semester 1 workshop and lectures: Fridays weekly 5pm to 8pm, from 5 February 

Requirements of the course

This course requires both on-campus practical and theory classes; and connectivity to learning management systems for self-paced study.
