Object based final year project: design and manufacturing a quick stop device
MetadataShow full item record
This chapter focuses on teaching and learning of a final year project in undergraduate mechanical engineering degree in the field of manufacturing. The final year project allows students to apply the knowledge they learnt through undergraduate course work. In addition, it provides the opportunity to get practical involvement in design, project management, manufacturing, creativity, practical applications etc. However, most of the final year projects, now-a-days, are either a portion of a big project or performing tests to understand the trends of certain parameters. As a result, such projects only allow the opportunity for partial knowledge to the students. Thus, an object based project in final year has been explored in this chapter. A quick stop device (QSD), which is used to investigate chip formation mechanism during machining, was proposed as an object to design, manufacture and apply in the current investigation. It was found that this project allow students the opportunity of applying their course work knowledge in project works, taking complete responsibility, being innovative, free thinking, being creative, learning new things and performing research.
