This 3 year degree programme has been carefully designed with a heavy emphasis on Manufacturing and Production Engineering and Technologies. First two years of the degree programme is mapped to Pearson BTEC HND in Mechanical Engineering by Kingston University, London. At the year 3, students will follow the Final year of BEng (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering Degree Programmeof Kingston University London.
The course aims to cultivate technical and managerial proficiency in mechanical engineering including the ability to tackle a wide variety of practical problems. The course emphasizes the development of a professional attitude to management, design, maintenance, sustainability, quality and safety.
The Module mix and course equips graduates with the knowledge, comprehension, and intellectual ability and subject practical skills to become professional mechanical engineers and to follow careers in related professional areas. Employability is a key element of the course and hence the emphasis on management, communication, interpersonal and technical skills that enhance employment prospects.
This core module is designed to extend the students’ knowledge of the analytical techniques of Fracture Mechanics, Stress Analysis and Thermofluid to analyse and design engineering structures and systems
This module builds on the knowledge gained in year 2 Thermofluids& Mechanical Principles 2 module to extend students’ knowledge and skills in structural analysis based on fracture mechanics and fatigue. Simulation will be used to give a practical introduction to the finite element analysis (FEA) method for structural analysis. Thermofluids mechanics aspects involving conversion and transfer of energy such as turbo machines (pumps, turbines…) and heat exchangers will be discussed. The module also provides a further understanding of numerical methods employed in heat transfer analysis.
This module is designed to develop, refine and apply the ideas and skills introduced in the second level modules than involve mechanics, electronics, control and computing. It enables students to identify and develop skills in the solution of problems relating to electromechanical design in mechatronics products. On the one hand, the students develop skills to solve, model and interpret dynamics behavior of structures and systems. On the other hand it introduces to students how embedded microprocessors may be used to sense, process and control real world events,
The module covers topics such as modelling of multi degree of freedom of vibrating systems, natural frequencies, damping, mode shapes, response due to various excitations, graphical tools for control systems, transient response, gain control, cascade compensations, z-transform, sensors and actuators, and their signal conditioning, microcontroller programming and use of related software such as MATLAB and microcontroller specific software.
This module is a core module in the MEng and BEng Mechanical Engineering programmes and forms a capstone experience for the course. This major project is undertaken throughout the final year of the BEng programme and Stage three of the MEng programme, allowing the students to research and study in depth a topic in Mechanical Engineering which is of personal interest, thus allowing them to demonstrate their ability to
This module gives the student an opportunity to work as a member of a design team on an Aerospace/Mechanical/Civil design project. It also further develops the student’s broader understanding of the business context of engineering activities. It will develop a set of skills and techniques which will prepare them for employment.
The group design project will represent roughly half of the content of this module. It will bring together ideas for all of the modules which constitute the programme. There will also be a series of lectures on the business environment. These will typically cover the following areas:
