Subject outline

Students will use Creo Parametrics as a software tool to design, develop and enhance parts and assemblies. Through project-based learning, students will create and enhance parts and assemblies for product design. This will involve production of 2D and 3D drawings in accordance with international standards and FEA (Finite Element Analysis) of structural and thermal performance. Particular attention will be placed on FEA examination of flow characteristics of plastics for mold analysis and fatigue analysis under cyclic loading. Students will design for additive manufacturing and conduct material analysis for optimum design. Upon conclusion of the subject, students will have a design portfolio and solid foundation in material optimization for design, additive manufacturing and design optimization through simulation analysis.
