In this module, learners will gain knowledge and skills to model the engineering parts and interpret drawings that are derived from the 3D models. Topics covered include orthographic projection, sectional views, assembly drawing, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing. Learners will acquire the necessary skills in communicating ideas and concepts through engineering drawings, which is one of the necessary and critical skills needed in the design process.
In this module, learners will acquire knowledge of properties and applications of engineering materials, including ferrous and non-ferrous metals, polymers, composites, and ceramics. Learners are exposed to various material properties tests and characterization, material processing methods and different material failure modes. Learners will be able to select appropriate materials for specific engineering applications.
This module introduces the concepts of heat, fundamentals of thermodynamics, and fluid mechanics. Topics covered include temperature, heat capacities, latent heat, heat transfer and the ideal gas law, first laws of thermodynamics, the properties of fluids, the concepts and basic equations of fluid statics, and fluid flow. Learners will apply their knowledge to analyse and solve problems relating to heat, heat transfer, ideal gases, fluid statics and fluids in motion.
In this module, learners will use word processing software to create, modify and style document/report effectively and efficiently. Learners will use spreadsheets to manage, organise and model data as well as to perform analysis and report generation. Creation of customised, dynamic and multimedia-style presentations using software tools will also be covered. Learners will gain and apply these skills through hands-on practices in preparation for the digital workplace.
In this module, learners will be engaged in a systematic process of design thinking. Through this process, they will acquire innovative and enterprising skills to develop creative and technically robust solutions to real-world challenges.
Learners will develop attributes that are pervasive and synonymous with being innovative and enterprising for career and life. Through this module learners will develop positive practices when working with data, propose ideas using user-centric approaches and design processes, determine and locate resources, and leverage collaborative practices to formulate solutions.
Through this foundation module, learners will study essential knowledge in calculus and acquire skills for solving engineering problems encountered in their course of study. Topics include differentiation and integration of commonly used functions in engineering applications.
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.
