Diploma in Engineering ( Architectural) (Level 4)
ABOUT THE COURSE
The Diploma year (Level 4) introduces students to the essential skills, knowledge and attributes required for civil engineers. The course helps students develop in the study of mathematics for engineers, mechanics, drawing, practical skills, sustainability and surveying with creative ideas. A professional approach to civil engineering is encouraged from the outset, including building relationships as an individual and as a member of a team, such as in undertaking a supervised group project on a negotiated topic.
The STI MU Diploma in Architectural Engineering (Level 4) provides the first of three years of study which culminates in the BEng (Hons) Engineering (Top-up) at Level 6, awarded by the University of Bedfordshire, UK.
This course aims to achieve the following for its students:
To lay the foundations for becoming an engineer who is practical, articulate, numerate, literate, creative and flexible
To Introduce the concepts and principles of Architectural engineering, and to help students understand to evaluate and interpret these creatively
To enable students to present, evaluate and interpret statistical data in order to understand the performance of systems and components
To introduce the wider professional responsibilities of civil engineers, including code/s of conduct, working within an ethical framework, health and safety, risk management, environmental, sustainability and societal issues
To provide an educational foundation for a range of studies directly relevant to civil engineering, including commerce, enterprise, marketing, innovation and creativity
To acquire technical proficiency in design skills, allowing students to look for safe, economic and creative solutions to practical problems
To develop a range of transferable skills, techniques and personal attributes essential for successful performance in the workplace, and which require the exercise of some personal responsibility
Method of Assessment
Acquisition of core knowledge is through a mixture of lectures, presentations, demonstrations, laboratory sessions, field trips, experiments and self-directed study.
Analytical thinking skills are developed through discussion and test questions.
Practical skills are developed through laboratory experiments, the use of simulation software and workplace experience.
Transferable skills are developed through assignments and presentations, particularly in the project unit.
Assessment activities provide major opportunities for learning. Assessment criteria are linked to unit learning outcomes and stated for students in unit information forms.
Assessment methods vary for different units, but the course will include:
Unseen mathematical tests
Case studies or relevant workplace scenarios
Group project work
Closed book examinations
Each unit will include a variety of methods from the list above. The number of assessments varies from unit to unit.
Successful completion of Foundation in BEng Engineering.
