Competence in engineering drawing using an industry standard CAD system and essential laboratory skills
This course follows a series of case studies as given in the course text. This covers a wide range of subjects including conceptual design, innovation, standardisation, reliability, safety, failure, ergonomics, materials and management. Additionally, the students will take part in the compulsory design activity and respective Engineering Application 1 activities.
To develop fundamental engineering communication skills using standard ICT tools. These skills will be taught and developed in the context of the Swansea Tidal Lagoon. This module also introduces ethics in engineering and continuing professional development.
To provide additional grounding in engineering analysis methods for materials students. The module will cover the most important analytical tools and methods used in engineering and will relate these to common materials-related examples. The module will ensure the required grounding in methods and techniques for those who have not previously covered this area, or who are returning after a gap. It will also provide opportunities for extension to more complicated examples for those who have more prior experience.
This module deals with the significance of computers in numerical analysis. Integration by MATLAB and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) - (a) Review of MATLAB programming techniques; (b) Introduction of FEA and the techniques to implement FEA by using Solidworks, including stress analysis of one-dimensional beam structures and two dimensional structures, etc. Module Aims: Competence in SOLIDWORKS to implement FEA method and MATLAB to solve mathematical problems.
