Description This subject provides fundamental knowledge and skills development in Digital Manufacturing and Design (DMD) technologies for Advanced Manufacturing, Product Design and Industry 4.0. Digital transformation happens throughout the world in Product Development and Design (PDD). Students will engage with digital technologies which stimulate innovative, integrated and sustainable product development processes and workflows from design to manufacturing. As part of their engagement with real-world design projects, students will apply their skills to areas such as design, scenario analysis, rapid prototyping and testing for improved manufacturing outcomes. A number of opportunities, such as the WSU Formula SAE Race Car project, will allow students to work alongside industry partners and develop job ready practices for their future careers.
