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.
Engineering Materials (CITY1091)
Study of Material structure. Appreciation of material properties. Understanding of manufacturing and design considerations for the use of different materials.
CAD Techniques and Design (CITY1092)
An Introduction into CAD in the Design Process, progressing swiftly through 2D draughting to explore 3D conceptual design and visualisation. During this module students will take part in a relevant work based design project.
Applications of Pneumatics and Hydraulics (CITY1095)
Learners will investigate pneumatic and hydraulic diagrams, examine the characteristics of components and equipment and evaluate the applications of pneumatics and hydraulics.
Management Techniques in Mechanical Engineering (CITY1098)
On completion of this unit to appraise the main techniques that improve organisations’ operations.
Engineering Science 2 (CITY2092)
This module will enhance the knowledge acquired in engineering science, looking at more in depth methods of analysis of solids, statics and dynamics in the field of engineering
Advanced CAD & FEA (CITY2093)
The development of 3D modelling techniques, Surface and Solid modelling within a dedicated 3D modelling package. Creating 3D visualisation and animations to communicate design concepts. Produce full sets of drawings, BOM’s and manufacturing information. Analyse the stresses and strains on structures using FEA techniques to achieve an optimised design solution.
Engineering Design (CITY2094)
The aim of this module is to give students an opportunity to experience the process of carrying out a design project from conception to implementation. It will enable them to appreciate that design involves all aspects of customer desire, marketing, project planning, costing, product design and manufacture.
An integration of the skills and knowledge developed in other modules of the course within a major piece of work that allows the student to develop the ability to work individually; and with others, within a defined timescale and given constraints, to produce an acceptable and viable solution to an agreed brief.
Thermo and Fluids (CITY2099)
This module investigates the knowledge and understanding of thermodynamic system and fluid mechanics, in order to solve problems by analytical method and also familiarize with industrial machineries.
Engine Technology and Auxiliary Systems (CITY2100)
This module investigates a number of engineering principles which underpin the design and operation of power plant and drive systems used in the Marine Industry. It includes some elements of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, but emphasis is on the mechanics of engines and propulsion systems.
