BEng (Hons) Integrated Engineering Modules
- Creativity and Fundamental Engineering Skills - Explore the range of technical and non-technical skills required within engineering and technology including laws of physics, principles mathematics, and communication, collaboration and digital skills.
- Engineered Structures and Mechanisms - Investigate different types of engineered objects and how they work. You'll carry out tests, and work with models of real structures and moving artefacts such as buildings and transport.
- Engineering and Technology as Problem-solving - Develop your understanding of how engineering and technology fit within a wider societal context, through the solving of a systems-based problem that would pose real-world repercussions. Along the way, you'll further develop your skills in maths, modelling, producing graphs and using digital tools.
- Engineering and Technology Project - Apply your learning across the year to an individual project, finding out about various engineering and technology disciplines and the roles they play in different industries and business sectors, and considering your own future career options
- The 21st-Century Engineer - Start your study by building a physical and digital artefact. Along the way, you'll be introduced to the different disciplines of engineering, the influential role of the engineer in society, and the responsibilities we carry as professional engineers.
- Thermodynamics & Fluids - Here, you will analyse and improve a fluid flow system. You'll combine observation, an awareness of how energy is converted to be put to work, and a knowledge of thermodynamics and fluid dynamics, phenomena that underpin the engineer's understanding of how fluids and gases move in engineered and natural systems.
- Statics and Dynamics of Simple Mechanisms - You will design and validate a single-element mechanism under a straightforward load case. This includes consideration of static and dynamic behaviour, properties and selection of material(s), and awareness of material treatments.
- Fundamentals of Analogue and Digital Circuits - You will specify and build an open loop control system that meets the needs of a given application. You will be able to differentiate between analogue and digital electronics approaches, and apply circuit theory, circuit laws and principles of digital logic.
- Creating Social Value through Engineering - This is your opportunity to integrate your skills and knowledge from Level 4 to work on a community-based project that creates social value. You'll develop key mindsets relating to stakeholders, equity, inclusive design, prototyping, and new product development, as well as learning some basic project management tools.
- Energy Engineering - You will propose and specify an energy solution for a specific application. You'll develop and apply your knowledge of thermodynamics including energy/power cycles, heat transfer, and the engineering components and systems that deliver energy.
- Statics and Dynamics of Complex Mechanisms - You'll build on your knowledge from level 4 to design and model a more complex (multi-element) structure under differing load cases, including selection of appropriate material(s) from a wider, more specialist range. You will address more complex structures and load cases, and explore the advantages of multi-component materials.
- Control and Instrumentation - You will monitor and model a predictable (LTI) closed-loop control system. To achieve this you'll develop and apply an understanding of open- and closed-loop systems, feedback system design, control system performance and analysis and modelling approaches.
- People and Projects in Engineering - You'll deliver an engineering project which you will design, plan and execute. You'll explore the project lifecycle as a way of understanding and breaking down projects, and you'll learn to use a range of tools to work within and manage projects effectively.
- Data-Driven Engineering - In this module you will master principles of sampling, design of experiments, and the fundamentals of data science. You'll gather, combine, clean, and manipulate more than one big dataset and present an data analysis that facilitates decision-making in the context of an engineering process or facility.
- Manufacturing as Integrated Engineering - This module presents manufacturing as a context in which materials, structures, dynamics, electronic, control, thermodynamics, energy and power can all be observed, and challenges you to identify benefits and strategies for Industry 4.0 approaches. You will draw on an understanding of the manufacturing environment, and the key mindsets that underpin productive manufacturing (including the management of cost, quality, legal responsibilities, workforce, and wellbeing and safety).
- Bachelor's Project - This module builds on the knowledge, experience and skills you have gained in the your course to date, and allows you to demonstrate your capability in a self-managed innovative project.
The course is taught one module (30 credits) at a time, with each module taught in an 8-week block.
Students on the standard three year degree course take four modules over an academic year (120 credits and 32 taught weeks per year). Students on the Fast-track degree course complete five modules in each academic year, plus two modules in the final four months, including the Bachelor’s Engineering Project.
