The main objective of Engineering is to design and realize the design in various fields of
interest to the profession that solves an existing need, improves an existing technology,
process or product and bring in innovative ideas that can be implemented through design.
Students of engineering have to understand the importance of design and how to do it as this
is the main professional goal.
In the KTU curriculum a course on Design and Engineering is offered in the first year of the
program, for all branches of specialization. This course is an introductory course planned to
understand the various segments of activities connected with simple design. This course is
planned to encourage students to think differently and formulate design solutions to meet any
need. Further, students are encouraged to take up mini-projects to experience the excitement
in design. The designs dealt with in this course are simple which do not require in depth
knowledge in engineering. Examples mostly covered are on functional designs.
During the first four semesters, all branches of engineering have introduced engineering
courses that are relevant to the engineering specialization and this is continuing in higher
semesters. Many of us do not have a clear idea on the significance of these courses in
engineering. It has to be understood that these course are not engineering courses per say but
are engineering tools to be used for the final objective of design that meets the needs of the
society. Today many of these tools are available in the form of software based on the theory
behind them that is covered in the engineering courses. Likewise the conceptualization of
design and reforming of design based on any criteria (Example optimization) can now be
done using many of the design tools available for engineers. These include CAD, Analysis
Tools, Simulation Tools, Optimization Tools and the like.

Design Project.
So it is imperative that students are to be exposed to design using these tools in addition to
the basic concepts that were covered in the course on Design and Engineering. Design project
is planned for this. It is to allow the students to use software design tools and get familiar
with them. Remember that all designs are now computer assisted designs which allow the
innovative ideas of the designer to be implemented quickly and effectively. A step further in
this direction is Computer Aided Engineering covering all aspects of design and its
realization. The software could be used with limited knowledge of the theory behind it.(
Think of finding the 3rd root of 56.45 without a calculator) The idea is to know how to use
them in design, like the use of scientific calculators in many areas of engineering and
Each branch can select any design project in their specialization and do the design project
using CAD and other design tools available. 3 D modelling and 2 d drawings extracted from

the model can be prepared. Material used could be listed, standard items used in the design
could be identified, exploded views could be prepared, and quality and reliability (Computer
science-software design) could be ascertained. Wherever required, analysis of the design
using appropriate software tools (Finite Element Analysis) could be used to modify the
design. Likewise simulation tools could be used to check the function of the design or the
system. All Design details using CAD are to be brought out well and presented by the student
during project evaluation. This will need good communication skills. In the computer
Science Branch, this could be on software design as practised in industries covering flow
charts, coding, verification, quality and reliability of the product and a case study using the
designed product.
Design project can be taken up by a group of students not exceeding 4. Course evaluation
details are given in the regulations which is further detailed below. As the evaluation is
internal by the colleges, care is to be taken to make it authentic and open as far as possible. It
will be a good idea to display the designs, department wise before the final evaluation so that
all are aware of the quantum of work done by the group.

Final Semester Project
If the design done in the fifth semester is to be realized and experimented with, that part can
be taken as final year project. Students can plan for this while selecting the design project so
that the final year project will be a realistic one with full involvement of the group.
