Analytical Methods for Engineers (15 credits) - HND Chemical Engineering  / HGHND-OL

Analytical Methods for Engineers (15 credits) - HND Chemical Engineering / HGHND-OL

Description

The aim of this module is to provide the fundamental analytical knowledge and techniques needed to successfully complete the core modules of Higher National Engineering programmes. It is also intended as a base for the further study of analytical methods and mathematics, needed for the more advanced option modules. This module has been designed to enable students to use fundamental algebra, trigonometry, calculus, statistics and probability, for the analysis, modelling and solution of realistic engineering problems at Higher National level.

Assessment
One single component of assessment, comprising four elements, in the form of an in-course assessment. Each assessment is equally weighted and comprises a set of, on average 5-10 short answer questions

Fluid Mechanics (15 credits) - HND Chemical Engineering  / HGHND-OL

Fluid Mechanics (15 credits) - HND Chemical Engineering / HGHND-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) - HND Chemical Engineering  / HGHND-OL

Heat Transfer and Combustion (15 credits) - HND Chemical Engineering / HGHND-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.
