Applied Technology for Product Design (H7125)

15 credits, Level 4

Spring teaching

The Applied Technology module develops skills in the application of mathematical skills to real world scientific and engineering tasks. Application areas include basic mechanics such as equations of motion, static framework analysis and materials, engineering design such as drag, lift and pressure and electrical principles and electronic devices. You will learn to analyse real- world engineering and design problems, and how to use scientific data to inform component selection and make informed design choices. You will consider the design process from requirements analysis, generation of possible solutions, simulation and evaluation of those options. You will also learn basic practical electronics laboratory skills.
