Roadmap to Learning Mechanical Design Engineering

Whether you are a beginner looking to enter the industry or a seasoned professional aiming to upgrade your expertise, our learning path offers a structured approach to mastering the essentials for innovative design and beyond. 

Design Process and approach

  • What to learn ? 
  • The Engineering design process, how to apply it in practice?
  • The flow of work from idea to detailed design
  • Structured process to break down the larger problem into smaller design problems.

Engineering Basics

  • What to learn ?
  • Thorough  understanding of concepts which are foundational to problem solving
  • How to apply calculations and  analysis to solve design problems
  • Machine components design 

Materials and Design for Manufacturing

   What to learn ?
  • Understanding material properties and how they affect design 
  • Selection of materials apt for problem
  • Understanding manufacturing process and incorporating into design - Simultaneous engineering. 
  • Designing Sheet metal or Plastic parts with considerations in mind 

Concept development 

    What to learn ?
  • How to generate and develop concepts for a given problem
  • How to use fundamentals and tools ( CAD, Simulation )  to generate / evaluate/improve concepts , applying the design process
  • How to  formulate problem statements and holistically solve the design problem with all considerations in mind (manufacturing, function, durability etc.) .

Engineering tolerancing , GD&T 

    What to learn ?
  • Under standing Design intent and translating to engineering drawing
  • Understand the underlying concepts of GD&T
  • How to interpret and apply GD&T in real cases
  • How to perform Tolerance analyses on assemblies to make sure they fit  or assemble
