Module overview

Engineers design physical products, systems and processes. They think big with vision, research, analyse, create, refine and deliver solutions.

Engineering is a design discipline that is broad, creative, logical and holistic, while also focused and extremely precise. It utilises experimentation, numerical analysis and calculation and the application of scientific principles to deliver sustainable solutions for people, our societies, cultures and environments. It requires engineers who have refined their skills through experience and demonstrate they can apply learning within a highly communicative, process-driven, teamworking environment.

This module introduces the theories and practical skills required for you to become a successful engineer. It includes a series of design projects, ranging in focus and scope, supported by lectures, practical workshops, design tutorials and presentations. You are encouraged to identify your existing skills, competencies and interests, and shape and enhance your own learning – helping you to start to define your own career within the exciting world of engineering.
