This course envisages providing essential fundamentals, knowledge and skills for students to enrol into Engineering / Quantity Surveying higher education programmes. The course provides application of what student have learnt in Physics and Mathematics, in particular school level education through participatory student centric learning environment including Engineering Workshops, Seminars, Field Visits and Lab work.
The Pre-Engineering programme enables students to explore different engineering fields and progression paths available with specific sub-disciplines. Hence, students along with their parents can decide on their future career path with proper assessment during the course of study.
This unit enables learners to develop previous mathematical knowledge obtained at school and use fundamental algebra, trigonometry, geometry, calculus, statistics and probability for the analysis, modelling and solution of simple practical problems. It is intended to provide a basis for further study of the analytical methods and applied mathematics needed in various stages of engineering and construction further academic programs.
Engineering Science envisages the learners to understand and apply fundamentals of statics, kinematics, dynamics, and mechanics of materials, electricity and electromagnetism, analogue and digital electronics and solution of practical problems. It is intended to provide a hands-on experience on circuits and measuring devices.
Engineering Drawing introduces students to technical drawing and the use of two- dimensional computer-aided design tools. Students will progress from hand drawings which meet relevant standards to the use of computer-aided design tools for engineering drawings. Although the emphasis is on mechanical drawings, an introduction to electrical drawings will also be provided.
The unit develops knowledge and understanding about computing, computer systems, efficient use of a computer, as well as the skills that will enable learners to use word processing, spreadsheet and database software as well as industry-standard CAD software. Skills to format and manipulate text and images are developed, enabling learners to produce reports and assignments. This unit will also help develop learners’ understanding of computer programming techniques and will enable them to design and develop programs for a variety of simple applications.
This module provides students with an understanding of inter-personal communications and an appreciation of effective oral and written communications as essential employability skills required for effective employment and career development. Further, it facilitates and encourages students to develop their skills in verbal and non-verbal communication, effective use of presentation techniques, writing for defined audiences, listening techniques, present and communicate within groups and as a group in a consistent and coherent manner. This module further aims to develop various laboratory and study skills such as carrying out laboratory work to defined procedure, preparing report, understanding and analyzing construction and electrical wiring drawings.
