Description of module content:

You will learn the techniques to produce free-hand sketches and CAD engineering drawings to describe design concepts for engineering communication.

You will be introduced to writing software in a high level language, C. You will gain experience in a range of software environments: data types and operators, I/O, program structure and flow, conditional flow and expressions, functions and procedures, mathematical functions and programme documentation.

You will learn: the structured design, development and testing of software. This will allow you to debug programs to give a solution to an engineering problem. You will be introduced to computer hardware, microprocessors, microcontrollers, memory, control, interfaces and writing software in C language.

Learning Outcomes for module:

On completion of this module you will be able to:
LO1: Communicate technical information in graphical freehand format.
LO2: Produce basic engineering drawings to BS8888.
LO3: Write a structured program with functions or procedures which perform mathematical calculations based on input options.
LO4: Write a program for a microcontroller application.
