Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
The approach adopted shall be of a participative nature with lectures and tutorials followed with
experimentation and case studies.
Embedding of employability/PDP/scholarship skills:
Guest lectures by industry and local government personnel shall be organised. Course work shall form the basis for: (i) PDP
and (ii) scholarship.

Formative Assessment:
The formative assessment will be an exercise on energy audit and Carbon foot print analysis of domestic
energy consumption. This will also include an feasibility of Carbon trading.

Summative Assessment:
A 2,500 word report
encompassing the above technical analysis shall be expected.
