Mechanical Principles (15 credits) - HND Mechanical Engineering / MGHND-OL

Mechanical Principles (15 credits) - HND Mechanical Engineering / MGHND-OL

Description

This module covers a range of mechanical principles which underpin the design and operation of mechanical engineering systems. It includes aspects related to strengths of materials and mechanics of machines. The aim of the unit is to provide a firm foundation for work in engineering design and a basis for more advanced study.

Assessment
Element 1, 2 and 3 consists of a small number of questions (typically 4-6) 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.

Project (20 credits) - HND Mechanical Engineering / MGHND-OL

Project (20 credits) - HND Mechanical Engineering / MGHND-OL

Description

This module presents the opportunity for students to use the knowledge and skills they have developed at work and in their programme of studies, in the definition, management and completion of a work-related project, including the presentation of their findings to an appropriate audience. The module thereby aims to integrate the skills and knowledge developed in other modules of the course within a major piece of work that reflects the type of performance expected of a higher technician at work.The student is advised to study this module until last and is advised to use a ‘real’ project based on their own workplace where this is possible.

Assessment
One single component of assessment comprising three equally weighted elements:

  • Element 1 comprises a logbook or project diary documenting the progress of the project
  • Element 2 comprises a project report of approximately 3000 words
  • Element 3 oral presentation of the project 5-10 mins
