Following graduation our students are expected to:

  • Successfully apply fundamental mathematical, scientific, and engineering principles in formulating and solving engineering problems;
  • Work competently in new and renewable energy engineering areas of practice;
  • Work effectively and conduct themselves ethically in their professional environment; and
  • Develop improved skills and new skills to enhance the state of their practice in a dynamic professional environment.

 

  1. STUDENT OUTCOMES
  2. Student Outcomes

We have adopted the National Academic Reference Standards (NARS) as our own Program Outcomes. In order to develop improved skills and new skills to enhance the state of their practice in new and renewable energy Engineering, students must be able to: apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering; understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context; have knowledge of contemporary issues; recognize the need for, and be able to engage in life-long learning; use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice; and explain basic concepts in management, business, public policy, and leadership.

It is also expected that students will need to spend additional time practicing skills in a work environment and in completing projects and assignments, in order to fulfil Training Package assessment requirements. Work placement is a mandatory requirement within this Framework and appropriate hours have been assigned to each course.

(1)- Learning in the workplace will enable students to:

  • progress towards the achievement of industry competencies
  • develop appropriate attitudes towards work
  • learn a range of behaviors appropriate to the industry
  • practice skills acquired in the classroom or workshop
  • develop additional skills and knowledge

(2)- The graduates of the engineering programs should be able to:(NARS 2009

  • Apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering concepts to the solution of engineering problems.
  • Design a system; component and process to meet the required needs within realistic constraints.
  • Design and conduct experiments as well as analyze and interpret data.
  • Identify, formulate and solve fundamental engineering problems.
  • Use the techniques, skills, and appropriate engineering tools, necessary for engineering practice and project management.
  • Work effectively within multi-disciplinary teams.
  • Communicate effectively.
  • Consider the impacts of engineering solutions on society & environment.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of contemporary engineering issues.
  • Display professional and ethical responsibilities; and contextual understanding
  • Engage in self- and life- long learning
  • Evaluate the sustainability and environmental issues related to mechanical power systems.
  • Use energy efficiently.
  • Apply industrial safety.
  • Apply and integrate knowledge, understanding and skills of different subjects and available computer software to solve real problems in industries and power stations.
  • Lead or supervise a group of engineers, technicians and work force.
  • Carry out preliminary designs of fluid transmission and power systems, investigate their performance and solve their essential operational problems.
  • Design, operate and maintain internal combustion and steam engines.

2 – Curriculum Description

The curricular structure is aimed to be consistent with the PEOs as follows:

  1. It provides ample opportunities in each of the nominal five years of study to ensure students can successfully apply fundamental mathematical, scientific, and engineering principles in formulating and solving engineering problems.
  1. It ensures that graduates will be prepared to work competently in multiple core areas of New and Renewable Energy Engineering practice.
  • The multiple opportunities for group work culminating in the capstone design sequence lays the groundwork for graduates to work effectively and conduct themselves ethically in

the professional environment.

  1. The balance of fundamentals and practice in the curriculum ensures graduates will be capable of furthering their education both formally and informally, and the general experience of being instructed by research-active faculty can implicitly inculcate graduates with the understanding of ongoing development and mastery of new knowledge.

Technical Writing

HUM 151

Specific Goals:

This course shows engineering students how to write and speak more effectively and develop the communication skills essential to success in their academic careers and on the job. The course focus specifically on what an engineer needs on a day-to-day basis, providing an “engineering approach” to technical Communication that features practical examples and situations from today’s industry. Based on the engineering concept that anything that interferes with efficient communication is “noise,” the course shows students how to make their signal-to-noise ratio as high as possible. Such things as grammar errors, typos, poor organization, and fuzzy thinking are treated as noise that needs to be eliminated from the message, so that communication can be as effective and efficient as the engineering ideas it conveys. By the end of this course it is expected that the student will be able to:

  • Eliminate the “noise”—grammatical errors, typos, poor organization, and unclear phrasing from your writing
  • Create effective professional engineering documents, such as inspection and trip reports, laboratory reports, specifications, progress reports, proposals, instructions, and recommendation reports
  • communicate visually with PowerPoint and other graphic tools
  • Stand out from the crowd with better application letters and resumes
  • Deliver oral presentations and speeches with confidence
  • Avoid plagiarism and other ethical pitfalls that engineering writers encounter
