Subject Description
Students will participate in a series of lectures and workshops, designed to allow experiencing of engineering technology and science. Exercises replicating typical engineering problems will be undertaken. Emphasis will be on the use of engineering technologies to better understand and solve these problems. Topics include: stress/strain and materials mechanics; analysis of loadings on bodies (free-body diagrams and force equilibrium); conservation of energy and momentum; continuity of flow/conservation of mass; fluid properties; theories of failure and materials properties.

Extra Information
Subject Objectives:
On successful completion of this subjects, students will: i. Appreciate the role of abstraction, simplification and use of assumptions and mathematical relationships in solving problems encountered by engineers. In particular, analysis of loadings on bodies; conservation laws; continuity laws; theories of failure and materials and fluids properties. ii. Have a desire to learn engineering technology having an understanding of its place in engineering problem solving. iii. Have built a 'bridge' between high school and university approaches to learning. iv. Understand the context of the elementary technologies adopted in the various engineering disciplines. v. Have confidence and competence and understanding of the application of the fundamental laws of nature to solve a range of engineering problems.
