AbstractThis course provides an introduction to engineering design. Through hands-on, practice-oriented exercises, students learn about and experience the fundamentals of engineering design, including concept design, technical drawing, CAD, material selection, manufacturing process selection and sustainability. Three case studies in healthcare, mobility and sustainable materials are explored.
ObjectiveThe lecture and exercises teach the fundamentals of engineering design, technical drawing and CAD as well as material selection. After taking the course, students will be able to tackle simple design tasks, generate and evaluate concepts, accurately create technical drawings of parts and assemblies as well as read them. Students will also be able to create models of parts and assemblies in a 3D, feature-based CAD system. They will understand the links between engineering design, sustainability, material selection and manufacturing process selection.
ContentIntroduction to Engineering Design
• design requirements
• concept generation and selection
• prototyping

Design Representations
• Sketching in Engineering Design

• Technical Drawing:
o projections, views and cuts
o dimensioning
o assemblies

• CAD:
o CAD modeling operations
o parametric design and feature-based modeling
o assemblies
o creating 2D drawings from 3D part models

Fabrication and Additive manufacturing

Design for the Environment

Material and Manufacturing Process Selection
• materials and their properties, with emphasis on sustainable materials
• basic mechanics
• material selection processes
• manufacturing process selection

Three case studies in healthcare, mobility and sustainable materials
