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... [-]
