Outline Syllabus:
Development of structures, products, systems, or organisations by a process of initial proposal, the construction and testing of prototypes, critical appraisal of performance, review of original concepts, improvement and re-test, where appropriate. Factors influencing design of structures, products, systems or organisations, including some of: organisational analysis; ease of implementation, manufacture or construction; economy; stability and safety; robustness; stiffness; performance requirements; factors of safety; health and safety and the need to control modes of failure; environmental implications; ease of establishment, assembly and removal; quality and reliability - the influence of organisation, manufacturing techniques and/or inherent defects on behaviour; influence of material properties and organisation on form.
