In this module students will gain an understanding of the various fields of engineering and explore the engineering design process, from conceptual design and optimal choice evaluation to project construction and the need for engineering ethics. Students will interpret data and use mathematics and science to solve complex engineering problems. They will have to evaluate problems and their solutions within engineering constraints, such as economic, manufacturing, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, or sustainability requirements. The module will help to sharpen problem solving skills and develope effective communication skills through written assignments and instructor-led discussion groups.
