Description

INTRODUCTION

The Year 1 Fundamentals of Engineering Design Coursework is the starting stone for more challenging and extensive project in Year 2-3/4. It makes demands not only on your individual technical ability, but also on your ability to communicate and co-operate with other members in a project team, as well as effective communication with other people outside the team through a properly structured project report.

 

The design project report forms the only tangible result of the design team’s efforts and nowhere else does the level of coordination between team members become more visible. Even well executed designs can be marred by poor report presentation. To help avoid this pitfall, the following guidelines have been drawn up as a basic standard to which you must work with. In addition, they provide a framework which you can use to plan and monitor the progress of your project team towards completing the project successfully by the report submission deadline.

 

COURSEWORK TITLE:

Water Treatment Plant

 

WHAT ARE THE CHALLENGES?

The plant is needed to be designed to process x tonnes per day of domestic wastewater so that it can be sold to Municipal council (e.g., DBKL, MPKL, MBSJ, etc) or industry (construction, agriculture, etc) for non-drinking purpose. Each detailed project reports cover all the aspects of business, from analysing the market, confirming availability of various necessities such as plant & machinery, raw materials to forecasting the financial requirements. The scope of the report includes assessing market potential, negotiating with collaborators, investment decision making, corporate diversification planning etc. in a very planned manner by formulating detailed manufacturing techniques and forecasting financial aspects by estimating the cost of raw material, formulating the cash flow statement, projecting the balance sheet etc.

Since the FED coursework is the single most important piece of work in the Year 1, and it resembles the proposal submitted for bidding for a project in a consultancy company, a penalty of 5% reduction per day (including weekends) is STRICTLY implemented for late submission. Please note that a submission at 14:01 (based on the server time on the submission day) on each specified deadline is considered as late submission. Students who have submitted late by 3 days (without a valid Extenuating Circumstances Form) are considered to have failed the particular task.
