Teaching

  • EG-233 Placement Preparation: Engineering Industrial Year

    This generic cross-disciplinary module is for all students who have enrolled (or transferred) onto the Engineering Year in Industry scheme. The module focuses on the underpinning and fundamental requisites required to gain, enter and progress effectively through an industrial placement. Learners will be introduced to a) sourcing placements, CV writing and application techniques; (b) interview techniques - how to pitch yourself and be successful; (c) workplace fundamentals and IP awareness, behaviours and expectations; (d) key employability skills; getting the most from your Industrial Placement; and (e) health and safety in the workplace.

  • EGH304 Finite Element Method

    This module provides a concise introduction to the elementary concepts and methods of finite element analysis, with applications to heat flow, solid mechanics, structural mechanics and other engineering problems. It also provides practice in using finite element software/codes.

  • EGIM16 Communication Skills for Research Engineers

    Communication at a research level differs from that at the undergraduate level in that it is usually driven by an output or result rather than the requirement to show knowledge or understanding. The skill of a good communicator at research level lies in efficiently and rigorously conveying the ideas behind the theory and proof of the research output. Verbal, written, visual and group communication will be explored through a series of lectures and formative exercises.
