Description The aim of the module is to encourage students to think for themselves about engineering and to consolidate what they have learned in their degree programme The content will be presented by a series of lectures presenting case studies accompanied by a number of web-based tutorials and/or additional reading materials to enable students to think about Mechanical Engineering in the broadest sense. The syllabus will contain material from the majority of modules in the first three years of the degree.
Learning Outcomes By the end of the module the student should be able to:
  • Demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of the scientific principles of mechanical and related engineering disciplines;
  • Demonstrate a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of concepts from a range of areas including some outside engineering, and the ability to apply them effectively in engineering projects.
  • Demonstrate a thorough understanding of current practice and critically analyse its limitations.
  • Demonstrate extensive knowledge and understanding of a wide range of engineering materials and components.
  • Apply engineering techniques taking account of a range of industrial requirements/constraints.
