Engineering Mathematics (CITY1077)
To develop the student's mathematical ability and to apply principles to the solution of engineering problems and to make use of mathematical computer based packages
Engineering Science 1 (CITY1078)
An introduction to mechanical principles, energy transfer and AC electrical theory. Mechanical principles including solid mechanics, statics, dynamics and mechanical vibrations. Modes of heat transfer and energy losses. Electrical principles and single phase AC theory.
Digital and Analogue Devices and Circuits (CITY1079)
This module provides learners with a practical understanding of a range of digital and analogue devices and circuits in common use within Electrical/Electronic Engineering Systems. Students will analyse the operational principles associated with a number of fundamental electronic building blocks and will consolidate their learning through the practical build, testing and presentation of real circuits.
Project Design and Business Management. (CITY1080)
This module introduces concepts of current energy/business/project management techniques in accordance with current professional practice within the engineering sector. The module is project and case study based, investigating different industrial scenarios.
Electrical & Electronic Principles (CITY1081)
This module covers the Electrical Principles which learners in many branches of Electrical and Electronic Engineering need to understand. It builds on the elements of basic circuit theory and provides the basis for further study in the more specialist areas of Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
Microprocessor Systems & High Level Programming (CITY1082)
This unit is intended to give learners an understanding of the general principles and concepts of programming in high level language, to create and test simple programs capable of interfacing with external hardware.
Electrical Power (CITY2075)
This module provides introduction to the principles, techniques and applications of electrical power engineering. The student will evaluate and analyse conventional and alternative electricity generation and utilisation, distribution, energy management and control systems. The student will also analyse AC and DC motors and generators, single and poly-phase transformers and associated device protection.
Further Analogue Electronics (CITY2076)
This module extends the theory and practice of analogue circuits covered in previous studies. It will aim to link previously learnt theory into the practice of designing, building and testing real analogue circuits to given specifications.
Further Digital Electronics (CITY2077)
This module is intended to develop combinational and sequential logic design techniques, making use of industry standard Electronic CAD tools, and to introduce software for Programmable Logic Devices.
Applications of Power Electronics (CITY2078)
This module provides introduction to the principles, techniques and applications of power electronics. After an initial exploration of power device characteristics and application the student will be evaluate and analyse electronic power circuits for the control of AC/DC motors, Inverters, SMPU, industrial control and protection.
Work Based Learning Project (CITY2079)
This module enables students to gain specific skills in the design, build, test and evaluation of an engineering project. Thereafter the student will be given the opportunity to develop aspects of project design to include additional technical elements or functions. Generic skills include the use of industry standard CAD tools, project construction and software development. Emphasis will be placed upon preparation for real world work related projects.
Industrial Control and Mechatronics (CITY2081)
This module will introduce a multidisciplinary view of typical mechatronic systems integrating a number of engineering disciplines. Learners will analyse individual elements before identifying the interface and control methods used to combine those elements into a complete system. Learners will then apply formal design methodologies to implement and test a simple mechatronic system.
