An Integrated Course In Electrical Engineering
by Er. R.K. Rajput
The module aims to provide students with an engaging and interdisciplinary view of engineering that is consistent with a rigorous core of fundamental mathematics, modelling and analytical skills, but is firmly embedded in the professional practice of engineering and the context of design. It provides students with an awareness of an engineer’s influential role in the 21st century and an understanding of the impact associated with engineering decisions.
- Design and Professional Skills
To be successful engineers, our students need to be able to identify and analyse problems, conceive and design potential solutions, liaise with and present to clients, and work with and direct colleagues. They need to do these things efficiently, ethically, professionally, and competently, and, often, they need to do them quickly. Although it is possible to learn these skills ‘by osmosis’, this can take years—even decades—of trial and error. Our goal is to provide the students with tools at the start of their degrees that will make them more effective during their university career and, crucially, enable them to work as competent professionals not just when they graduate, but when they do projects and internships.
- Mathematical Modelling and Analysis
Traditional Engineering programmes often teach Engineering Mathematics theory in isolation from engineering practice. Whilst students taught through such programmes often exhibit detailed understanding of mathematical concepts, they are often incapable of applying their newly acquired mathematical knowledge to solving engineering problems. In contrast to this, the Mathematical Modelling and Analysis I (MMA I) module utilises mathematical modelling and simulation techniques as a pedagogic tool to integrate the acquisition and practice of mathematical concepts. This approach is underpinned by a suite of online mathematical support resources as well as a walk-in student-led Engineering Mathematics Support team.
- Introduction to Electronic Engineering
