This text is developed for the mechanical engineering module of the Fundamentals of Engineering Design. The purpose of the mechanical engineering module is to acquaint the students with the field of mechanical engineering and the design process in the product development. The mechanical engineering module contains two parallel but integrated portions: one is project-oriented and the other is skill-oriented. The project portion discusses the design process and the associated engineering principles, and practices basic mechanical design through team projects. The skill portion emphasized on the engineering sketches, drawings, and computer-aided design and manufacturing software applications, which are to be used by the students in completing their projects.
