Teaching

  • EG-190 Engineering Analysis 2

    Module Aims: this module (in combination with Engineering Analysis 1) provides further grounding in mathematical analysis techniques for Engineering students. The module extends the understanding into more complex analytical methods, focusing on complex numbers, multi-variable functions, series and sequences and differential equations.

  • EG-219 Statistical Methods in Engineering

    This module offers a balanced, streamlined one-semester introduction to Engineering Statistics that emphasizes the statistical tools most needed by practicing engineers. Using real engineering problems students see how statistics fits within the methods of engineering problem solving and learn how to apply statistical methodologies to their field of study. The module teaches students how to think like an engineer when analysing real data. Mini projects, tailored to each engineering discipline, are intended to simulate problems that students will encounter professionally during their future careers. Emphasis is placed on the use of statistical software for tackling engineering problems that require the use of statistics.

  • EG-243 Control Systems

    The module introduces the topic of feedback control systems and presents methods of modelling that lead to transient, steady state and stability performances in control systems. An emphasis is placed on links between time responses and complex frequency domains. Principal topics are feedback systems, focusing on the system characteristic equation and its solution. There is an emphasis on the root-locus approach in studying stability conditions and compensation design. The overall aim is to understand and be able to apply basic techniques for the analysis and design of feedback control systems.

  • EG-252 Group Design Exercise

    The module is intended to reinforce aspects of Engineering Applications (EA1) and develop EA2. Advanced features of microcontroller operation are introduced, including interrupts and programming of features of the selected microcontroller. Extended experimental work is carried out as a Group Design Exercise. Practice in using technical IT packages including microcontroller software development and the use of design aids such as PCBs and engineering drawing is inherent. Development of project documentation through a web-site.

  • EG-3063 Control Systems

    The module introduces the topic of feedback control systems and presents methods of modelling that lead to transient, steady state and stability performances in control systems. An emphasis is placed on links between time responses and complex frequency domains. Principal topics are feedback systems, Bode, Nyquist and root-locus analysis, stability conditions and compensation design. The overall aim is to understand and be able to apply basic techniques for the analysis and design of feedback control systems.
