(2) To provide students with an appreciation of the breadth of engineering. To develop computing skills. To successfully deploy these skills to generate and communicate engineering knowledge to a range of audiences.
Concepts, principles & practical calculations are developed and practised in mixed lecture/tutorial classes, and are consolidated in tutorial group sessions. Written classroom tests will assess the development of the application of practical skills to the knowledge base of the strand, and the formal examinations will assess the wider learning outcomes expressed in the descriptor. In all cases feedback is provided. Practical skills will be developed in laboratory sessions. Cognitive and personal skills will be developed by problem solving and design exercises.
