This module aims to promote students' interest in engineering by providing a platform for students to have their first hands-on experience in building practical projects in the aerospace systems, electrical & electronics engineering disciplines, applying and integrating the knowledge from different modules in the semester. Students will first conceptualize, design, implement and finally operate on interesting and practical projects. Through this platform, students will be able to hone their creative thinking and problem solving skills, build synergistic teamwork and enhance their communication skills.
This module provides students with the basic physics principles and tools necessary to underpin their education in engineering. It will enable them to apply the relevant knowledge, techniques, and skills in engineering contexts. Topics covered include units, vectors, mechanics, waves, and thermal physics. At the end of this module, students will be able to demonstrate understanding of and competence in basic engineering physics.
This module covers electrical fundamentals and their applications in electrical and electronic circuits. Topics covered include principles of electricity, resistive circuits, magnetism and electromagnetism, inductive and capacitive circuits, and DC & AC sources. Students will need this knowledge to analyse, interpret and solve engineering problems.
This module will provide the foundation for programming module. Students will learn computer programming for engineering applications. They will learn about computer hardware and software, problem-analysis, problem-solving techniques and develop essential programming skills. Such understanding of the various software development techniques is valuable for prospective programmers to create application software using modular design approach.
This module provides students with the basic mathematical principles and tools necessary to underpin their education in the engineering discipline. It will enable them to apply mathematical methods, tools and notations proficiently in the analysis and solution of engineering problems. Topics covered include engineering functions, trigonometry, complex numbers, determinants, matrices and vectors. At the end of this module, students will be able to demonstrate understanding of and competence in the basic mathematics of engineering, such as vectors, matrices, exponential and logarithmic functions, and complex numbers.
This module gives students a broad understanding of the communication process and interpersonal communication skills to interact effectively with others. The module will also cover the various forms of writing skills – technical, proposal and report – required in an engineering environment. In addition to interacting more effectively with others, their oral presentation skills will also be honed so that they become effective presenters.
This module introduces the theory of flight and provides students with an appreciation of electronics-based aerospace systems which enable smooth flight and operations of aircraft. Topics covered include the basics of flight and avionics systems such as aircraft electrical, instruments, communication, navigation and flight control systems.
To provide you an all-rounded education, NYP offers General Studies Modules (GSMs). So besides taking modules related directly to your chosen diploma course, you will get exposed to areas beyond your usual field of study. Through a combination of prescribed and elective inter-disciplinary GSMs, you will gain interesting, practical knowledge that can be beneficial to you as you prepare for the world of work and life after graduation.
