|Unit:||AERO3711: Aerospace Engineering Project 2 (6 CP)|
|Faculty/School:||School of Aerospace, Mechanical & Mechatronic Engineering|
Dr Auld, Douglass
|Session options:||Semester 1, Semester 2, Int January, Int July|
|Versions for this Unit:|
|Pre-Requisites:||Department permission required|
|Brief Handbook Description:||This unit of study aims to develop deeper practical knowledge in the area of Aerospace systems engineering. Students who take this subject would be interested in developing design skills by working on the sub-system of a real satellite or launch vehicle, autonomous vehicle research, flight simulation research or advanced propulsion systems research.|
|Assumed Knowledge:||Completed the junior years (first 2 years) of Aero(Space), Mechanical(Space) or Mechatronic(Space) Engineering.|
|Additional Notes:||Note1: A WAM of > 75% is required as well as departmental permission from the Unit coordinator.
Note2: There is a cap on the number of students allowed to do this subject in any one semester - depending on resources available.
|Department Permission||Department permission is required for enrollment in this session.|
|T&L Activities:||Project Work - own time: Students undertake research and design according to the project description.|
