Course Description

The Diploma in Engineering opens up the ideas and concepts behind engineering, and how they impact the modern world. You?ll be introduced to key engineering principles such as design, materials, electronic systems, maintenance and manufacturing. You?ll also get lots of practical experience and study what makes innovations succeed, how new materials contribute to design and how to develop and launch new ideas. The Advanced Diploma in Engineering is focused around three main themes: ? The engineered world: Looks at the importance of engineering in the modern world and the impact engineering has on the way we live our lives. ? Discovering engineering technology: Introduces basic engineering principles such as design, materials, electronics systems, maintenance and manufacturing. ? Engineering the future: Looks at what makes innovations succeed, how new materials contribute to design and how to develop and launch new ideas. At the heart of the Diploma are your core engineering subjects. These will teach you the main things you need to know about the sector. You?ll learn about the issues that are affecting the industry today, how it works and what skills you need to have to work within it. These are just some examples of the kind of learning you?ll be doing: The engineered world You?ll learn how engineering businesses operate, their processes and the internal and external factors that affect the business. You could, for example, learn how project management, research, manufacturing, design, marketing and other parts of an engineering business come together to make it successful. Discovering engineering technology As well as other varied activities, you?ll develop and apply the use of computer-aided design (CAD) in a range of engineering contexts. You could, for example, produce a 3D CAD model and presentation drawing of a cable-stay bridge. Engineering the future You?ll learn how to apply mathematical and scientific principles in engineering analysis, design and problem solving. You could, for example, explore how mathematics is used in engineering systems in smart homes which make living alone safer and easier for the elderly or people with disabilities.
