Unit Code: FIS705

Unit Title: Mechanical Engineering for Fishing & Lab

This Unit introduces students to the environment of technology innovation and its use in modern fishing industries. The Unit enables students to use the principles of motion, energy, force, and materials to design products that are safe, efficient, reliable, and cost-effective. Learning and teaching activities include research, design, development, testing, manufacturing and evaluation of fishing-related technologies.  The laboratory experiments provide the opportunity for students to test and develop engineering methods needed for the production of sustainable fishing gears and equipment for local fishing communities.
