The variety and complexity of modern equipment requires process and maintenance engineers to possess relevant multidisciplinary skills in order to analyse and specify faults and effect the relevant action.
This course will provide students with technical engineering discipline knowledge and skills, allowing them to understand engineering principles that underpin the design and operation of plant engineering systems and equipment.
Students will gain knowledge and critical understanding of the well established principles in their field of study and the way in which those principles have developed. Students acquire skills in analytical methods, plant and process principles, project management, engineering science and programmable logic controllers.
Assessment is completed using a variety of methods including case studies, written assignments, report writing, assignments that relate to the work place, plus practical projects.
Content and Modules
Mathematics for Engineering
Business Management for Engineers
Plant and Process Principles
Programmable Logic Controllers
Electrical and Electronic Principles.
As a significant proportion of this course involves work-based learning, students normally need to be already employed within the industry. Full-time students will be expected to arrange a suitable work placement on which to base work-based learning.
Students may expect greater employability and enhanced promotion prospects in to management. Alternatively, students can progress to a related Honours degree at UCS.
