Programme content

 

 

Stage 1

Students are provided with the opportunity to refresh and enhance their numeracy skills through the study of Engineering Mathematics.  Basic engineering knowledge/skills are consolidated, primarily aimed at bringing all students to a common baseline of knowledge and skills. In particular, the fundamentals of mechanical drawing, applied mechanics (solids), thermo-fluids (liquids and gases) and engineering materials are presented. Professional approaches to the presentation of technical information are introduced. By the end of the year students will be able to apply basic analytical and experimental methods to modest problems and will be able to communicate the results of short experiments and investigations in oral and written form.

 

Stage 2

Fundamental skills and knowledge derived from Stage 1 are enhanced during Stage 2. New concepts are explained in practically useful contexts to help students develop the art of applying fundamental principles to real situations. Students also cover measurement and instrumentation techniques to support core skills and knowledge development. Computer aided engineering (CAE) applications (modelling/simulation, CFD, FEA) are also studied alongside core mechanical engineering modules.

 

Stage 3

Core mechanical engineering modules are studied in more depth. A laboratory-based research project is carried out. Such research work further develops skills in personal organisation, time management and problem solving. Non-technical courses introduced this year help students to appreciate the professional and ethical responsibilities of an engineer.  By the end of the year students will be able to plan and organise projects independently and will have the confidence to apply their knowledge and skills to unfamiliar problems. The exercise of creative and imaginative approaches to engineering problems is encouraged through project and research modules. Finally, three months of compulsory industrial training allows students to further consolidate knowledge and skills developed though prior study.

 

Stage 4

Stage 4 is designed to allow students to further enhance their mechanical engineering skills and knowledge, while presenting an opportunity to study more advanced and/or complex material through a choice of elective modules. Outside core engineering studies, business and entrepreneur skills for engineers are introduced. As a result of completion of Stage 4, awareness of present day technological limitations and likely short to medium-term developments in the sector is developed. Similarly, growth in confidence and interpersonal skills should help students to fulfil a range of different roles in an interdisciplinary teamwork environment.

Industrial Training Year 3 Semester 3

 


  1. Teaching and Learning

 

(Also see teaching, learning and assessment matrix: Appendix 3)

 

To encourage engagement with the analytical subjects’ coursework ‘directed tutorials’ have been included which help to build confidence and develop skills needed in these areas. In contrast to analytical subjects, the synthesis of solutions to open ended engineering problems, requires a different approach and involves a process which is much more student centric. This is facilitated by the opportunity to temporarily suspend judgement, to postulate and explore alternative solutions. In subjects exploring system design issues, challenging assignments, often involving teamwork, will be used to encourage creativity and provide the opportunity to combine, select and apply the analytical skills and abilities, acquired in the individual modules of the programmes, to the solution of ‘real’ problems, thus integrating learning across the programme.

 

Students will also be exposed to a range of practical engineering skills, including the safe use of hand and machine tools. This ‘hands on’ experience of basic manufacturing methods will give a direct appreciation of the ‘process capability’ of such methods.

 

Presentation methods will be varied to suit circumstances, to maintain interest and provide alternative routes to acquire understanding to suit the preferred learning style of a particular student. Use of the virtual learning environment will be encouraged in all modules. The value of this resource not simply as the host of learning materials but as a focus for communication with and between defined groups of students is widely acknowledged and is expected to play an increasingly supportive and valuable role as a learning tool.

 

Furthermore, students will be encouraged to ‘take increasing levels of responsibility both for their own learning and the support of their fellow students and to recognising the value of doing this in the context of life-long learning.’ In this context the programme provides a framework for students to acquire the core transferable skills of numeracy, group working and communication abilities via reports, drawings and presentations; confidence in the use of IT and modern software tools; the ability to conduct independent research.

 

Programme Delivery:

Lectures, Tutorials, Laboratory, Group Design Project, Problem-based learning, Individual Research Project, Final Year Project, site visit.

 

  1. Assessment

 

Assessment is carried out via a range of methods, including continuous assessment (Coursework) and examination. Coursework may comprise tutorial, assignment, quizzes, oral presentation, poster presentation, report writing or time-constrained tests.

 

University of Sunderland assessment criteria will be used during all marking as a point of reference for the standard of all undergraduate level work.  Full double marking and moderation will be undertaken for final-year undergraduate work by the University of Sunderland until consistency of grading across both institutions in these Dual Awards programmes can be ensured. Moderation, as in the University of Sunderland quality management processes, will be undertaken for all other undergraduate level modules. 

 

For the Stage 4 project, students’ interest in the engineering role they would like to undertake upon completion of their degree programme is taken into account. Project supervisors aim to match this with the topic for the final year project. Students are asked to submit two proposals which are subsequently discussed with the project supervisor to identify the most appropriate course of study.

 

Students will receive assessment feedback, which reflects how they have performed in the assignments, with advice on how to improve for future assessment.

 

Refer to the Quality Annexe 2 in the contract, which describes the quality assurance of assessment agreed between the partners.

 

 

Refer to the Quality Annexe 2 in the contract, which defines the assessment strategy.

  1. Transportation
  2. Accommodation
  3. Sports and recreation activities
  4. Counselling
  5. Disciplinary matters
  6. Scholarships and awards

 

  1.                 Transportation

 

The University College provides shuttle service for students at various locations to enable the students to be on time for classes and also to enhance student safety. Transportation is also provided to students who are on practical training and internship. The University College’s two buses and vans are also made available for student activities such as study trips, sporting events and field visits.

 

In some programmes, students are shuttled to their practical training and internship.

 

  1.                 Accommodation

 

Students are encouraged to stay in the accommodation provided by the University College. The University College provides on-campus and also off-campus accommodation which are within walking distance from the campus. There are currently 3,831 students living in the accommodation provided by the University College. All accommodation is fully-furnished, and there are 20 full-time wardens and a supervisor employed to assist students. Student safety is of great concern and to ensure this, all SEGi University College accommodation practise tight security and are equipped with CCTVs. All new students are briefed on the rules and regulations of the hostel during the orientation. These rules and regulations are also explained clearly in the Student Handbook.

 

  1.                 Sports and recreational activities

 

Realising the importance of co-curricular activities, students are strongly encouraged to participate in the various societies, clubs and sports activities that are carried out on and off campus. Each club or society has an elected committee and advisor to plan and implement the activities with the full support from the Student Affairs Department. The University College has various facilities such as a swimming pool, squash courts, a basketball court, badminton courts and a gymnasium for students to use on campus to encourage students to be involved in sports and recreational activities. In addition to this the students are encouraged to plan and carry out activities regularly to create a vibrant and lively atmosphere at the University College.

 

All student sports and recreational activities are carried out in collaboration with the Student Representative Council (SRC) which is the elected body representing SEGi University College students. The Student Representation Council is empowered and given the responsibility of planning activities and events for SEGi University College students. They are given guidance on preparing budgets, promotions, and communication protocols for dealing with both internal and external parties. The Council is also given autonomy in the coordination and management of activities and events in the University College and is responsible for the success of these events. The rights and the responsibilities of the Student Representative Council are provided for in Part VIII Article 37 of SEGi University College’s Constitution.

 

  1.                 Counselling

 

Counselling is an important function under the Student Affairs Department. The University College management employs qualified counsellors to provide the necessary counselling services to students. This is supported by the pastoral care provided by the respective faculties.

 

In most cases academic counselling is handled by the respective faculties, whereas non-academic counselling is referred to the Deputy Vice-Chancellor Student Affairs (SEGi University College). Academic counselling is also available through partner universities, either online or through their regional office.

 

To ensure currency in counselling methods, counsellors are encouraged to source for and recommend to the management, courses, seminars, conferences, etc in their areas of expertise to assists them in acquiring the latest techniques and methods of counselling.

 

The Student Affairs Department monitors the progress of students under counselling to ensure effectiveness of the counselling sessions.

 

A Counselling Unit has been set up to further enhance counselling services for students. There are currently 4 full-time counsellors employed to assist students in the various academic and personal problems they face.

 

  1.                 Disciplinary matters

 

The Student Affairs Department is responsible for handling all disciplinary matters of the University College. During the Orientation, students are made aware of actions that are considered offences at the University College, and the disciplinary procedures that will follow those actions. These are also clearly stated in the Students’ Handbook which is distributed to all new students during the Orientation, and placed on notice boards to ensure all students are aware of the disciplinary procedures.

 

f.Scholarships and awards

 

The University College provides a variety of scholarships and awards for students who excel academically and also for those who may require financial assistance.
