Engineering

Engineers design, build or maintain the structures, machines or processes we encounter in our daily lives. Engineering courses build the foundation of analytical skills, theoretical and practical knowledge necessary to perform in an engineering profession. Mathematics, physics, economics, practical knowledge and some creativity are necessary foundations for Engineering courses. From the history of human inventions, to the future of innovation, Engineering courses can shed light on some of the most important skill sets in our modern economy.

Engineering courses open the doors to several diverse and rewarding careers in, for example, electrical engineering, civil engineering, chemical engineering, aerospace engineering, naval engineering, mining engineering or mechanical engineering. Within these disciplines, there are numerous, highly sought-after and lucrative positions available in almost every industry. Engineering courses usually specialize within the broad range of applicable topics, to focus on one field of applied engineering.

Best Course Studies in Engineering 2017. Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) Chartered Membership (CM) Examination Preparation Class - part-time There is a significant difference between a junior engineer who can carry out the design of individual structural elements and a senior engineer who can identify engineering problems and solve them with viable structural solutions within the scope of a design brief, taking account of structural stability, durability, aesthetics and cost. One of the purposes of this course is to assist junior engineers in their journey to become senior engineers. The course is open to all structural engineers wanting to develop their skills to include structural scheme design. It is assumed that all engineers enrolling on the course have a good working knowledge of design of the primary structural materials. The course includes manual methods of analysis and manual design calculations. It also encourages the use of hand drawn conceptual design sketches and sketch details. Throughout the course, use will be made of past questions from the IStructE CM Exam in tutorials to allow engineers to practice new techniques learnt on the course. There will be a day long mock exam where candidates will be given the opportunity under exam conditions to take a recent exam (likely to be last year’s exam). Opportunity will later be given for peer marking and discussion of the mock exam scripts (or other scripts brought to the session). Marks will not be given by the session leaders and the mock exam is not compulsory. The course includes issues such as exam technique, time management and mark allocation as well as opportunities for coaching using tutorials. In one session, we will invite one or two engineers who sat and passed the examination recently to speak on their experience of the examination, give their suggestions for suitable preparation strategies and answer some of the questions that trouble candidates. Two of the sessions are earmarked for bridge design; however the following topics are excluded from the course: offshore engineering, silos, chimneys, water towers and seismic/dynamic problems. Finally, as the course is exercise and tutorial based, those candidates who put the most effort into their contributions will gain the most from the course. “You get out what you put in.” Entry requirements Applicants should hold BSc (Hons) or BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering or Structural Engineering and be in the process of completing the IStructE’s Professional Review Interview.

[+]

The University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) is the world’s largest provider of international qualifications and their A-Level programme is the most widely recognised Pre-University qualification in the world. Students in over 150 countries pursue CIE examinations each year to gain entry into prestigious universities worldwide, including those in the UK, USA, Canada, New Zealand and Australia. Brickfields Asia College (BAC), a Cambridge International Associate Partner is proud to offer the CIE A-Level programme which would enable students to progress into degrees in Accounting, Business Management, Commerce, Economics, Finance, ITC, Communication, Law, Marketing and Mass Communication amongst others. This last year 4 of our students achieved the honour of being "Top Student in the World"!! Students should consider whether the Standard or Express Route will suit them better. With the Express Route, students can complete their A-Levels in just 11 months, from January to November and are able to start their first year Degree in Business or Law in the January and actually begin their second year of their Degree Course in the September, saving a year on their overall studies - Graduate faster. We generally restrict students who take this option to 2 A-Levels, but this is the normal entrance level to our UK university partners where in most cases students in Law or Business study their first two years in Malaysia then go the the UK for their final year, unless they would prefer to study all three years in just one country. However for those wishing to take 3 or more subjects the Standard Route will be the best option and this takes around 18 months to complete, after which time students can decide whether to continue their studies with us or attend another university, either way we will be happy to advise you of the best option.

Automotive Mechanics Yesterday's automobiles were simple and fun. Backyard muscle car mechanics were plentiful back then, but really well-trained professional technicians with the skills to straighten out those really tough problems have always been scarce. Today's automobiles are still fun, but they aren't simple anymore. And, while backyard mechanics are still around, they are fewer in number, and well-trained technicians are increasingly hard to find. One aftermarket service magazine puts the shortage of competent techs in the United States at more than one million, and as many as 15,000 new positions are opening yearly. Technical Requirements Fundamentals of Automotive Technology Electrical Fundamentals Electrical and Electronic Systems Braking Systems Steering and Suspension Special Topics I and II Motor Vehicle Air Conditioning Drive Train and Axles Engine Repair I and II Automotive Emissions Automotive Engines Advanced Automotive Engines Manual Transmission/Transaxle Automatic Transmission/Transaxle Engine Performance and Diagnostics General Education Requirements Introductory Technical English I Introductory Mathematics I Oral Communication Skills Introductory Computer Skills II Orientation Total Credit Hours - 60 Estimated Salary According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook 2014-2015, median hourly earnings of automotive service technicians and mechanics in 2012 was $17.60. The top 10 percent earned more than $60,070. Dealership technicians are often paid in conjunction with a commission based system that can vary by employer. Job Opportunities According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook, job opportunities in this occupation are expected to be very good for persons who complete automotive training programs, and opportunities are expected to increase 9 percent through 2022. Program Features Electronic diagnostic equipment includes Snap-On/Sun's Computerized Dynamic Data Collector and cutting edge handheld scan tools like the OTC Genisys. Late model vehicles and powertrain components challenge students with contemporary training exercises and live work, not only in powertrain repair, but also in electronics systems, fuel injection, and engine performance. PC based automotive information retrieval systems such as All data provide students with comprehensive access to shop manuals on both import and domestic vehicles marketed in the United States from 1982 to the present model year. National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation The instruction, course of study, facilities, and equipment of Lurleen B. Wallace Community College Automotive Program has been evaluated by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF) and meets the standards of quality for the training of automobile technicians in the following areas: Brakes, Electrical/Electronic Systems, Engine Performance, Suspension and Steering, Automatic Transmission & Transaxle, Engine Repair, Heating & Air Conditioning, and Manual Drivetrain and Axles.
