This bridging course is designed to provide you with a solid foundation in a range of modules from Thermofluids to Engineering Principles as well as Mathematics support. This is the building blocks of the mechanical engineering discipline. It combines a strong basis for support in engineering techniques to provide a complementary blend of skills required to solve mechanical engineering problems in a wide variety of fields, such as the traditional energy and renewable energy sector, manufacturing, transport sector, materials amongst other fields.
This course is intended to meet the needs of the engineering student or employees and will ensure you meet the requirements of future academic studies especially if you have been out of studies for some time.
This short online course will enable you to meet your specific needs or interests within the engineering disciplines.
- Evaluation of formulae
- Quadratic equations
- Simultaneous equations
- Trigonometry and functions
- Scaling factors and units
- Areas and volumes
- Newton's laws
