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.
