The problems facing today’s engineers are increasingly complex issues such as energy, transportation and sustainability. They draw upon a range of engineering disciplines as well as topics such as policy and human behaviour. To solve these problems, engineers need both sound technical knowledge and a multi-disciplinary perspective. General Engineering students will benefit from a course that builds strong engineering science principles, combined with design and entrepreneurial insight, on an analytical foundation of mathematics and computing. On this course, students will study topics that include design for engineers, programming, robotics, systems engineering, electronics, signal and information processing, mechanics, materials and manufacturing, heat transfer and fluid dynamics. The study of these specialist subjects is underpinned by a design-and-build approach that can be applied to create and improve technology, products and services. Students are expected to spend approximately 10 hours work per credit for each module they attend in their degree. These hours cover every aspect of the module: lectures, tutorials, laboratory sessions, independent study, coursework and preparation for examinations. Assessments will be conducted via written examinations, project reports, and coursework. For the practical and design elements, students will be assessed through laboratory write-ups, design projects, presentations, research project reports and oral examinations.
