This new degree responds to the demand for engineers enthused by tackling cross-disciplinary challenges, in particular through the development of advanced engineering software (using high-performance computers) and use of digital manufacturing. The continual growth in computer speed, storage capabilities and visualization techniques, together with greater levels of understanding of the physics that explains our world, has led to remarkable improvements in the fidelity of engineering simulations.
Bachelor of Engineering (with Honours) - BEng (Hon)
Year one is common to all of the engineering courses. Students study the science (largely physics) and mathematics that underpin engineering principles. They are also instructed in how to develop computer programs to (i) solve numerical analysis problems and (ii) control mechatronic systems. Group exercises provide students with the opportunities to undertake preliminary engineering designs. Students begin to specialise in year two, advancing their knowledge of solid and fluid mechanics while also studying measurement, data analysis and mechatronics. Students registered on the BEng degree, who average at least 60 per cent at the end of year two, are encouraged to transfer to the MEng degree. The third year places increasing emphasis on cross-disciplinary computational analysis. Modules include structural engineering, aerodynamics, signal processing and medical physics together with engineering management.
Assessment is by coursework and examinations. Group learning and communication skills are addressed through design studies and presentations. Practical and technical skills are assessed through laboratory work, data analysis and project reports.
