Social?
Social 
The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

Students on the programme will cover a broad spectrum of Engineering Technology including, but not limited to, elements of carpentry and joinery, plumbing and electrical trades, common engineering materials and basic manufacturing processes and techniques, giving them a broad range of skills whilst not being specialised in any one area.  


 

This course provides the technical knowledge and techniques for combining microelectronics technology with computer software in order to produce effective working products. There is a large amount of practical work in modern well equipped workshops and laboratories.


 

The core of this 3-year programme is focused on Engineering Science and Technology, engineering materials and manufacturing methods. There is also an emphasis, through project work, on applying these scientific principles and technologies to the solution of mechanical engineering design problems, and transferring those design solutions to manufactured articles. 

The course covers a combination of e-learning, practical laboratory based exercises, computer based exercises, case studies, site visits, problem based learning and Research based teaching.
 
There is also an external placement module in semester four (second year).  


 

This programme is designed to develop your ability to apply engineering principles and technologies to the solution of problems arising in the investigation, planning, design, construction, operation and maintenance of civil engineering works.

The programme considers analysis of transportation systems, regulation of water, pollution control, design, construction and maintenance of civil engineering and building structures and financial and managerial topics. 

 

 


 

This programme is designed to develop your knowledge and understanding of the principal functional, technological, economic, social and legal factors which influence the design, construction and use of buildings.
