Each year Level II, III, IV and Masters Mechanical Engineering students undertake projects dealing with both research and design problems. The problems in Level IV and Masters are defined either by industry or by staff of the School of Mechanical Engineering and deal with topics ranging from system analysis and design for manufacture to experimental investigations of fundamental research problems. On several occasions the students' solutions have lead to patentable systems. The Level III project is a design exercise requiring a broad range of technical input. The Level II project is a national design and build competition which is determined by the Institute of Engineers Australia.
Each year in October an Exhibition is held to showcase the projects.
Level 4 Honours and Masters Projects
The selection and management of the Level 4 Honours and Masters Projects is organised using an online database management system. The system allows staff to post projects and for students to select their preferences.
The School of Mechanical Engineering has been engaged in the Society of Automotive Engineers car racing competition since 2001. The events involve the design, build, and racing of a car. All team members are university students that use their skills to build the most competitive car they can.
