Unit: AMME5902: Computer Aided Manufacturing (6 CP)
Mode: Normal-Day
On Offer: Yes
Level: Postgraduate
Faculty/School: School of Aerospace, Mechanical & Mechatronic Engineering
Unit Coordinator/s: Mr Briozzo, Paul
Session options: Semester 2
Versions for this Unit:
Campus: Camperdown/Darlington
Pre-Requisites: None.
Brief Handbook Description: The aim of this course is to enhance the student's manufacturing engineering skills in the CAD/CAM area. The course focuses on CNC milling as a manufacturing automation process applied to a project. The management, planning and marketing of a typical engineering project are also discussed.

Through integrated project-based learning and hands-on-machine training, you will learn: How to successfully complete a CAD/CAM and CNC mill based project; Manufacturing management and system skills, such as product planning, manufacturing sequence, time and cost; The science in designing and selecting a manufacturing method; How to effectively present your ideas and outcomes using oral and report based methods.

It is expected that through your hard work in the semester, you will find: Enhanced learning by real-world problems; Improved comprehensive skill in manufacturing design.
Assumed Knowledge: None.

Assessment Description: The assessment method is in three major cores;

1. By way of individually assessing a student`s developing knowledge base using a series of assignments and a final quiz throughout the semester.

2. By way of individually assessing a student`s developing knowledge base and their presentation skills in a once off presentation/seminar.

3. By way of a group project that combines the individual group`s efforts, encourages group interaction and participation.

4. By way of a number of small laboratories which emphasise the `hands-on` aspects of manufacturing engineering.

*indicates an assessment task which must be repeated if a student misses it due to a special consideration.

#indicates an assessment task which may be assessed at a later date if a student misses it due to a special consideration.
Assessment Feedback: Formative assessment feedback is provided by;

1. By way of written feedback in Assignment or Report based assessments.
2. By way of written feedback in Quiz based assessments.
3. By way of verbal and written feedback on video presentations.
4. By individual discussion.
Grading:
Grade Type Description
Standards Based Assessment Final grades in this unit are awarded at levels of HD for High Distinction, DI (previously D) for Distinction, CR for Credit, PS (previously P) for Pass and FA (previously F) for Fail as defined by University of Sydney Assessment Policy.
