Elective Modules (Level 4) - Process Engineering

Applications of Pneumatics and Hydraulics (15 credits) - HNC Process Engineering  / PEEHNC-OL

Applications of Pneumatics and Hydraulics (15 credits) - HNC Process Engineering / PEEHNC-OL

Description

This module will provide students with a knowledge and understanding of fluid power systems in modern industry by investigating pneumatic and hydraulic diagrams, examining the characteristics of components and equipment, and evaluating the applications of pneumatics and hydraulics.

Assessment
Evidence will be provided from a single component of assessment, comprising three elements, in the form of an in-course assessment. Each assessment comprises a set of, on average 5-10 short answer questions which are related to the sequence and content of the lessons provided within the learning materials.

Engineering Applications (15 credits) - HNC Process Engineering  / PEEHNC-OL

Engineering Applications (15 credits) - HNC Process Engineering / PEEHNC-OL

Description

In this module students identify individual tasks, activities, or programmes of work, whether administrative, theoretical, practical or supervisory, that they have undertaken as part of their daily working lives and show how those activities have contributed to their professional engineering development. In so doing the module requires that the student document key aspect of the development to date and to critically appraise their career journey, identifying areas of their experience that may be under-developed and producing an action plan for their ongoing professional development.

Assessment
One single component of assessment, comprising four equally weighted elements, in the form of an in-course assessment comprising short project style reports of approximately 500 words each that detail the professional development activities that the student has undertaken in the workplace and show how each activity has contributed to the student’s progress and the advancement of their abilities in engineering; technically, managerially, and personally.

Fluid Mechanics (15 credits) - HNC Process Engineering  / PEEHNC-OL

Fluid Mechanics (15 credits) - HNC Process Engineering / PEEHNC-OL

Description

The module applies the principles of fluid mechanics and the techniques used to predict the behaviour of fluids in engineering applications. The module looks at the forces exerted by a static fluid on immersed surfaces, viscosity, the flow of fluids through pipelines and around bluff bodies and examines hydraulic machines.

Assessment
Evidence will be provided from a single component of assessment, comprising three elements, equally weighted, in the form of an in-course assessment. Each assessment comprises a set of, on average 5-10 short answer questions which are related to the sequence and content of the lessons provided within the learning materials

Heat Transfer and Combustion (15 credits) - HNC Process Engineering  / PEEHNC-OL

Heat Transfer and Combustion (15 credits) - HNC Process Engineering / PEEHNC-OL

Description

This module is intended to develop students’ knowledge of principles and empirical relationships to enable them to solve practical problems involving heat transfer, combustion and the specification of practical engineering equipment.

Assessment
Element 1, 2, 3 and 4 consists of a small number of questions which require a blend of short descriptive answers including the reproduction of diagrams; numerical calculations requiring the interpretation of technical descriptions and the identification and use of relevant formulae, tables and charts.
