To develop an understanding of the stages that need to be followed in order to translate design data into fully functioning manufactured products through the use of modern approaches to CADCAM plays.

Learning Teaching & Assessment Strategy:
The principals are introduced in seminars and implemented in project work involving the design and manufacture of a simple mechanism. Supplementary assessment is to repair deficiencies in original submission.
