Assessment of performance for engineering technology students on computer-aided engineering software usage

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

Abstract

The use of computer-aided engineering (CAE) software to assess the performance for engineering technology students is discussed. The tests are designed to evaluate a student's learning outcome in each area of finite element analysis (FEA) and mechanism design. FEA is a simulation process that predicts, stress and deflection by dividing the structure into a grid of "elements" to form a model of real structure. The CAE software could provide accurate results without dealing in-depth theories and mathematical calculations.
