Students are given the opportunity to learn a quali-quantitative framework to aid in evaluation and analysis of energy technology system proposals in the context of engineering, political, social, economic, and environmental goals.OptionalVehicle Systems and Control 2026-27EGR9036M (old code EGR3036M)Level 72026-27This module builds on earlier control theory to apply and extend the previously studied controller design methods. The focus is primarily on passenger cars and considers the primary dynamic systems such as driveline, suspension and braking systems. The module starts with the underlying vehicle system dynamics and the corresponding reduced-order system models, including as the quarter-car suspension model and the bicycle handling model. Then a number of linear and nonlinear control methods are reviewed and developed in the context of particular control objectives. For longitudinal motion, control action is centred on the engine, driveline, and brakes. For vertical motion (ride) the focus is on suspension control, including active and semi-active suspensions. Finally, handling control is based on active steering and brake-based electronic stability control.OptionalVibration of Rotating Machines 2026-27EGR9037M (old code EGR3037M)Level 72026-27Students are given the opportunity to develop an analytical understanding of complex vibrating systems, with particular reference to rotating machines such as gas turbines and wind turbines.

In learning the fundamentals of computer programming, logical thinking and problem solving, skills can be developed and coding techniques learnt, that can support the study of modules in forthcoming years. This course delivers the concepts of structured computer programming and lab time is allocated for implementing these concepts. Students are provided with opportunities to plan, write, and debug their own computer programs.CoreDesign Challenge for Engineers 2023-24EGR1022MLevel 42023-24All engineers must be familiar with design strategies, methods of assessing design proposals, approaches to reducing uncertainty, formal communication techniques and the industrial and legal standards in which they fit. Mechanical Engineering students will independently learn and demonstrate the fundamentals of mechanical technical drawing and computer aided design (CAD); Electrical Engineers will independently learn and demonstrate the fundamentals of electrical drawing and CAD. Electrical and Mechanical engineers will then coalesce to form interdisciplinary groups who will produce an electro-mechanical design solution which meets a practical objective and considers the commercial, economic, social and environmental implications via a broad critique of the state of the art.CoreElectrical and Electronic Technology 2023-24ELE1004MLevel 42023-24An understanding of the basic principles and many of the important practical applications of electronic and electrical engineering is now essential to practitioners of other disciplines, especially Mechanical Engineers. The aim of this module is to provide a foundation in Electrical Engineering and Electronics for students, of sufficient depth to be useful, and without being over complicated or cluttered with too-rigorous and exhaustive mathematical treatment.CoreEngineering Mechanics 2023-24EGR1016MLevel 42023-24The syllabus for this module can be divided into two topics: Statics and Mechanics: The primary aim of the study of engineering mechanics is to develop students' capacity to predict the effects of force and deformation in the course of carrying out the creative design function of engineering. As the student undertakes the study of solids and forces (first statics, mechanics, then dynamics) they can build a foundation of analytical capability for the solution of a great variety of engineering problems. Modern engineering practice demands a high level of analytical capability, and the study of mechanics can help in developing this. Dynamics: The study of dynamics gives students the opportunity to analyse and predict the motion of particles and bodies with and without reference to the forces that cause this motion. Successful prediction requires the ability of visualize physical configurations in terms of real machines ( in addition to knowledge of physical and mathematical principles of mechanics), actual constraints and the practical limitations which govern the behaviour of machines.CoreMaterials and Methods of Manufacture 2023-24EGR1004MLevel 42023-24The selection of materials and manufacturing method is an integral part of the engineering design procedure. The purpose of this module is to introduce the fundamental properties of engineering materials through an understanding of the atomic and molecular interactions within the material. Students are introduced to the technology of manufacturing processes and how the selection of manufacturing processes are influenced by, and subsequently affect, material properties.CoreMathematical Skills for Engineers 2023-24EGR1014MLevel 42023-24A good mathematical grounding is essential for all engineers. The theory developed in this module aims to underpin the other engineering modules studied at level one. Wherever possible, mathematical theory is taught by considering a real example, to present students the mathematical tools they might need for the science they follow. Solutions are considered by both analytical and numerical techniques. Where basic principles are involved, some proofs will also be taught.CoreThermofluids 2023-24EGR1017MLevel 42023-24The syllabus for this module can be divided into two topics: Thermodynamics: Thermodynamics is an essential part of engineering curricula all over the world. It is a basic science that deals with energy interactions in physical systems, and the purpose of this module is to study the relationships between heat (thermos) and work (dynamics). This module presents a range of real-world engineering applications to give students a feel for engineering practice and an intuitive understanding of the subject matter. Fluid Mechanics: Fluid Mechanics is the branch of applied mechanics that is concerned with the statics and dynamics of liquids and gases. The analysis of the behaviour of fluids is based upon the fundamental laws of applied mechanics, which relate to the conservation of mass-energy and the force-momentum equation. However, instead of dealing with the behaviour of individual bodies of known mass, Fluid Mechanics is concerned with the behaviour of a continuous stream of fluid. For this reason, Fluid Mechanics is studied separately to other mechanics modules. Due to the similarity of the mathematical techniques, Fluid Mechanics are studied with Thermodynamics.CoreAdvanced Thermofluids 2024-25EGR2005MLevel 52024-25Applied Thermodynamics: Thermodynamics is the science that deals with energy interactions in physical systems. The purpose of this module is to build upon the basic principles that were introduced in Thermofluid 1: Fundamental, and then apply this knowledge to real engineering problems. Heat Transfer: Almost every branch of science and engineering includes some kind of heat transfer problem, and there is a need for engineers to have some background in this area. The aim of this module is to provide an introduction to the basic principles and practical applications of conduction, convection and radiation heat transfer. The process of heat transfer is often accomplished by a flowing fluid, and so this module seeks to develop further the Fluid Mechanics covered in Thermofluids at level 1, in order that students can develop their understanding to the point that real world problems can be addressed.CoreApplied Dynamics and Vibrations 2024-25EGR2008MLevel 52024-25The aim of this module is to consolidate and build on the ideas and skills introduced in level one. Students have the opportunity to develop their ability to model dynamic systems with particular reference to vibration analysis in practical engineering applications.CoreControl Systems 2024-25EGR2006MLevel 52024-25The aim of this module is to provide students with a firm grounding in Classical Control methods, which will enable them to work with systems and control engineers, and prepare students on the control stream for advanced topics in the level three and four modules. Students will be introduced to Control in relation to engineering systems, and in particular to develop methods of modelling the control of processes. Techniques are explored with particular reference to common practical engineering problems and their solutions, and the application of SIMULINK in this process.CoreData Modelling and Simulation 2024-25EGR2010MLevel 52024-25The purpose of this programme of mathematical study is to give students the opportunity to become more competent in calculations using a range of mathematical tools. The content builds upon that delivered at Level 1, and gives students the opportunity to extend their analytical skills by introducing more advanced topics that may form part of the modern engineers skill set.CoreElectrical Power and Machines 2024-25ELE2004MLevel 52024-25Students will be introduced to electrical machines and power systems and their practical applications, supported by practical analysis/synthesis methods. This ability is fundamental for the students with mechanical engineering background, if they are to be able to handle electromechanical problems encountered in real life situations.

Students can obtain an appreciation of the features and characteristics of different types of electromechanical machines and drives and their applications.CoreIndustrial Engineering 2024-25EGR2011MLevel 52024-25This module aims to provide an introduction to the subject of industrial engineering. Industrial engineering is a branch of engineering dealing with the optimisation of complex processes or systems. It is concerned with the development, improvement, implementation and evaluation of integrated systems of people, economic resources, knowledge, information, equipment, energy, materials, analysis and synthesis, as well as the mathematical, physical and social sciences together with the principles and methods of engineering design to specify, predict, and evaluate the results to be obtained from such systems or processes. The various topics include management science, cost and value engineering, business economics and finance, engineering management, supply chain management, operations research, health and safety engineering, operation management.CoreInnovation Project 2024-25EGR2007MLevel 52024-25The content of this module aims to deepen a students understanding of engineering in practical applications. Students will have the opportunity to investigate the design process for mechanical, electrical or control components/systems and undertake analysis of the same. These two strands of the module are brought together in a design project, which will be set by a professional engineering organisation. This major project will give students the opportunity to extend their creative design skills and obtain practical experience of the process of creating sound conceptual solutions through to real design problems within an industrial context. Students can build confidence and gain experience through working within a team with practicing engineers from industry.CoreSolid Body Mechanics 2024-25EGR2012MLevel 52024-25This programme of study will extend the ideas and skills introduced at Level 1.
