As a manufacturing engineer, your role is to evaluate the manufacturing process in the company, identify challenges, present solutions and implement them. Some of the roles include:
As a top up degree, this course build on prior learning from the auston higher diploma in mechanical engineering or equivalent diplomas and advanced diplomas. Students who join this course are expected to have an existing understanding of structural mechanics, engineering mathematics, basic manufacturing technology, energy systems, material science, fluid dynamics, thermodynamics and other core content.
Students who do not have this prior knowledge will be required to undertake lower levels of study or bridging modules before entering. Please apply with us below to find out the entry level that applies to you.
This module discusses the manufacturing process and the various quality control systems that are used to manage the consistency and efficiency of the products that are produced by the manufacturing process. There is heavy emphasis on systems thinking as well as process design.
We all wish our systems will last forever but they do not. Therefore managing the components of your manufacturing system using a mix of preventive and reactive maintenance measures is critical. This module talks about the methods to manage the systems over time from a product as well as resource perspective.
We use case study and scenario approach to develop individual students abilities in a simulated professional environment. This module also covers the essential thought process of engineering systems, vocabulary and methodology of a professional engineering environment.
This is a challenging yet valuable module that teaches the design aspects of systems that are central to automation today. Not the aesthetic part of the design but the engineering design of it – what are the components, the sequence of the process, feedback and control loops, and managing the conflicting priorities of quality, cost, and efficiency.
This is critical curriculum that is a bridge between electrical and mechanical engineering. We teach it as a practice of using sensors and detectors to measure machine performance and outputs to control it’s continued functioning. With a gradual move towards little or no human input.
Also known as strength of materials this module teaches material testing procedures and methods that are essential in product design as well as specifications and failure analysis.
A Lean factory is the design of a factory for optimized production layout that creates a seamless flow of people, material and information. A well design lean factory will prevent the build up of raw materials and excesses while facilitating good visual management and a safe environment to work. It seems like common sense for a production environment but without formal consideration of the factors, lean design may be left to an after thought – by incorrectly prioritizing aesthetics or convenience first.
This module covers the steps of collecting data, analysis, modelling, probability testing, and life-cycle consideration in assessing the reliability of the machines and processes of your manufacturing process.
The current holy grail of manufacturing management in engineering companies is a manufacturing process that only requires human intervention for computer aided design and then the computer takes over – producing prototypes, measuring the outputs/products that it creates and self-corrects along the way, creating the optimal manufacturing processes and settings to achieve the desired product outcome. This is SMART manufacturing technology.
