Engineering Science (bite-sized HE Course)Course Code: ENSUP Learning Aim Code: Z0001940 Full-time / Part-time: Part-time bite-sized HE course - a module from the BTEc HNC/D in Engineering Duration: 16 weeks – one half-day per week Campus: Paget Road Campus
Is this the right course for me?
If you work in the engineering industry and want to extend your mechanical and electrical knowledge this short part-time module (part of the BTEc HNC/D in Engineering) will give you an understanding of the principles that underpin mechanical and electrically focussed engineering systems.
We have a state-of-the-art modern engineering workshop equipped with a range of industry-standard equipment including millers, lathes, CNC tooling and laser cutters, along with fabrication and welding equipment such as Tig, Mig and Arc welders and CAD suites.
What will I learn?
During this course you will learn how to:
- Determine the behavioural characteristics of elements of static engineering systems
- Determine the behavioural characteristics of elements of dynamic engineering systems
- Apply DC theory to solve electrical and electronic engineering problems
- Apply single phase AC theory to solve electrical and electronic engineering problems
What skills will I gain?
By doing this course you will:
- Study elements of engine statics including the analysis of beams, columns and shafts.
- Be introduced to elements of engineering dynamics
- Refreshing your understanding of resistors
- Gain an understanding of Ohm’s law and Kirchhoff’s law to solve problems
- Develop your understanding of the characteristics of various AC circuits
How will I be assessed?
