This subject introduces basic aspects of design and manufacturing, process selection, manufacturing processes, material selection and the use of computers in the design process. This is a project-based course delivered with blended approach. The project selected allows students to work individually and in a team environment to achieve the final objective, which is a workable product. As part of the project, students are asked to develop a product from a page of functional requirements by developing a concept sketch, detail engineering drawings, process plan and finally making the product in a workshop. At the end of the semester, the products are tested in front of a panel of judges. The necessary skills required for carrying out the project is taught during the semester by using face-to-face and e-learning approaches. In carrying out this work the student is exposed to design principles and drawing practices which includes Computer aided Design and Drafting, manufacturing processes and practical selection and limitations of manufacturing components and products. A continuing emphasis is placed on group work and report writing essential to engineering.
