A FRAMEWORK OF UT-UTeM MOBILITY PROGRAM BASED ONDIGITAL ENGINEERING AND DETERMINISTIC DESIGN
The University of Tokushima (UT) and Universiti Teknikal Malaysia Melaka (UTeM) have concluded an academic partnership under the academic agreement of MOU/MOA in 2013. As one of the joint activities for the agreement, a mobility program was initiated as MMPT2013 and the mobility students of UTeM joined the CEL Summer Program (CELSP) at UT in 2013. This paper presents the framework of CELSP based on an approach of digital engineering and deterministic design. The idea of this approach was derived from SCW project based on the historical design of a stair-climbing wheelchair. The design was made before the proposal of deterministic design and even before the birth of computer-aided design software (CAD), or one of the very popular digital design tools today. Reviewing SCW project from deterministic design point of view using a digital engineering approach, this paper overviews CELSP and shows how this approach was applied to one of the sessions of CELSP.
