A modular short course on socializing, telephoning, presentations, meetings and negotiation over a 12 week period, with two sessions per week of 90 minutes class time.   There are 15 units which develop particular vocabulary for each communication area with exercises and activities, such as role-play, and mock business presentations.    The five modules can be studied consecutively as a conventional course.

The unit of study aims to provide students with mathematical knowledge and skills needed to support their concurrent and subsequent engineering and science studies. The unit includes the following topics; complex numbers, hyperbolic functions, matrix algebra, linear equations, limits, series, and integration. MATLAB laboratory teaching is introduced to the students where they learn how to plot simple graphs, solve linear systems, find eigenvalues, and eigenvectors, and perform numerical integration.

This course covers the foundation in Chemistry with focus on essential theories and concepts applied generally in undergraduate Engineering courses. The objective of this course is to gain fundamental knowledge and understanding, rational evaluation and application of the concepts and theories in chemistry which link to the respective Engineering Courses.

This course will cover the basic tools, principles, theories and concepts in Physics with a focus on the process by which knowledge of the natural world is constructed. The main objective of this course is to make the students realize and understand many real world phenomena and to stay actively engaged in the process of developing ideas and applying them.





The course is designed to increase student's confidence and ability and to enable them to operate at a good intermediate level. The emphasis is on integrating the four skills, increasing fluency through interactive communicative activities and improving accuracy through grammar focus and error analysis. Attention is also paid to vocabulary building and achieving clear intelligible pronunciation.


This unit provides fundamental essential mathematics for engineering foundation students. The unit aims to provide a conceptual and practical basis for student learning and pre-University foundation program.  This unit begins by reviewing the concepts that deal with numbers and symbols this will enable students to develop topics in algebra, an understanding of which is essential for progress in other areas such as geometry, trigonometry, and calculus. Students will practice the examples and exercises illustrate the application of mathematics in engineering filed.

This unit develops students' ability to think independently and allow students to build upon and further develop and apply their creativity,skills and knowledge gained from prior studies. The students will utilize case studies of building design projects to look insight into the process by which architects work both individually and collaboratively to put disciplinary knowledge and expertise into practice. Cases will introduce a broad range of issues including design process, human factors, context, site, environment, culture, diversity, social justice, legal and regulatory issues, accessibility, technologies, materiality, sustainability, design disciplines, careers, and collaboration.

The aims of the design project are

  • To demonstrate current understanding of terms, approaches that architects employ in designing the human environment

  • To enable the student to work autonomously on a sustained piece of work appropriate to the programme being studied

  • To develop student's ability to fully manage a project whilst synthesising ideas or information to generate novel solutions

  • To achieve a body of work or practice that is coherent and resolved.

Specific objectives of the project are

  • To demonstrate an ability to select, critically evaluate and apply relevant areas scholarship to the design of an architectural design project.

  • To enable the student to choose a project of interest from a predefined set generated by members of academic staff, or negotiate a suitable topic individually

  • To be able to identify the possibility of new concepts within existing knowledge frameworks and approaches

  • To enable the student to work within the set specification to satisfy the academic and/or industry requirements

  • To enable the student to manage a sustained piece of work and monitor progress, while adhering to an overall academic timescale

  • To allow the student to reflect on their performance in delivering a project on time and meeting the deadlines

  • To enable the student to disseminate the results of their work to a wider audience, using appropriate academic and professional conventions

  • To recognize how architectural design process affects or is affected by political, legal, social, cultural, economic and ethical dimensions

  • To enable the student to conduct research into a specified area within the scope of study without digressing from agreed/self-set objectives.





This module provides the problem solving skills of engineering mathematics. Students will learn the solid knowledge of principles, methods, results and clear view of what engineering mathematics is. It covers Complex Analysis such as Complex Numbers and Functions, Complex Differentiation, Complex Integration, Power Series, Taylor Series, Laurent Series, Residue Integration, Conformal Mapping, Complex Analysis and Potential Theory, and Numerics for ODEs and PDEs in Numeric Analysis. These generalize the familiar real functions of calculus.




The course is designed to increase student's confidence and ability and to enable them to operate at a good intermediate level. The emphasis is on integrating the four skills, increasing fluency through interactive communicative activities and improving accuracy through grammar focus and error analysis. Attention is also paid to vocabulary building and achieving clear intelligible pronunciation.


This module provides the range of mathematical skills that are relevant to study in engineering at degree level. The module is studied during the first year of undergraduate engineering courses. Delivery is by a combination of lectures and tutorial sessions. It covers plane analytic geometry, the derivative, applications of derivative, integration, applications of integration, differentiation of transcendental functions, methods of integration, partial derivatives and double integrals, Taylor series and integrating combinations in differential equations.
