This module equips students with the fundamentals of DC and AC electrical circuits. The students will differentiate resistance, capacitance and inductance through practical experiments and theoretical studies. The students will be trained to select appropriate equations to solve problems about the three passive components of different electrical circuits. Students will be taught to effectively use digital multi-meters and other equipment to measure AC and DC voltages and currents. Students will be able to apply electrical safety rules and regulations relevant to the aerospace industry and confidently work with various electrical/electronic equipment and tools.
This module aims to give students a broad understanding of the communication process and the interpersonal communication skills to interact effectively with others. Students will also practise oral presentation skills so that they can become effective presenters. In addition, students will recognise the various forms of writing skills – technical, proposal and report – required in a professional environment. Therefore by the end of the module, students will be able to demonstrate effective communication, interpersonal, presentation and writing skills in social and work environments.
This module provides students with basic knowledge of manufacturing technology. It focuses on metal-cutting and metal-forming processes, composite manufacturing, non-traditional machining processes, surface finishing processes and common manufacturing processes in the aerospace industry.
