This introduction to the most popular areas of 21st century global Engineering will provide a rigorous introduction to the most up-to-date models, techniques and challenges in Mechanical, Electrical, Chemical, Civil and Structural Engineering. This will be supported by practical classroom activities where students will collaborate in building and designing Engineering constructions along with the development of academic skills in case study analysis, problem solving and report writing.
Engineering is a sector that, across the entire world, is undergoing unprecedented change. Engineers of the future will need the knowledge and skills to manage and lead this rapid change through times of uncertainty and complexity. Moreover, digitisation is increasingly enabling the delivery of projects through the use of advanced IT solutions including AI, Machine Learning, the Internet of Things, and engineering analytics: these advances are transforming the industry through improved, proactive design and build technologies that increase safety, reduce operational costs, provide innovative solutions to customers and provide competitive advantages with real-time insights from data analytics.
This course will introduce these themes and discuss the challenges, emerging global trends and opportunities for the future.
