    Applied Research and Engineering Practice 1

    Applied Research skills are key to addressing engineering challenges and providing creative solutions. The module aims to provide students with an opportunity to explore a research topic in depth, with appropriate research methods, Interpret the results in an engineering context, provide critical discussion and conclusions, and compose a research dissertation. The students will undertake this in subject areas relevant to the programme they are enrolled on. It also allows them to plan and execute their work plan and manage their time as well as exercising their engineering judgment and applying principles of engineering practice. They are encouraged to experience engineering as problem solving, considering the systematic processes that engineers use to define and resolve problems.

    Thermo-mechanical Energy Conversion

    The module provides detailed coverage on the thermodynamics, heat transfer, and fluid mechanics aspects of thermo-mechanical energy conversion systems reinforcing main concepts, formulations, design, and analyses. Waste mechanical energy is the inevitable by-product of objects in motion and exists in the form of vibrations, shocks, or strains. As the demand for energy continues to increase, it has now become ever so important to harvest large amount of heat produced by technology (servers, data centres, solar panels, power plants, oil refineries etc.) that would otherwise be wasted by converting it into usable energy. Waste heat can be easily converted efficiently to electricity or hot water for district heating or industrial thanks to cogeneration. Direct conversion of thermal and mechanical energy into electricity is the main focus in this module.
