Module overview

This course develops your skills in design and computing with practical hands-on engineering to enable you to design, build and test artefacts relevant to your discipline.

From the design component of the module you will be introduced to modern computer aided design techniques and geometry modelling and how they are used in your discipline illustrated further by examples drawn from across the full range of engineering.

For the computing component you will understand both fundamental programming and numerical methods how to apply these to practical engineering problems across engineering. In addition you will participate in hands-on activities to build artefacts in your engineering discipline and understand the skills required to use a modern engineering workshop.

You will work both individually on laboratory and practical assignments and also in groups on design, build and test activities. This sophisticated mix of design, computing and hands-on practical skills will be built on in future years of your degree programme to enable you to develop complex engineering systems and devices relevant to your discipline.
