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 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.
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 provides participants with a fundamental understanding of the civil engineering field and the basis of the construction technology. Topics covered in this module are introduction to construction engineering, managerial understanding of engineering construction projects, earthwork, substructure, drainage works, reinforced concrete work, tunnel construction, pavement work, dam construction, landscape construction and lighting LTD.
In this unit, students will learn the CAD as practical lesson. This includes Excel, technique of Architectural CAD, and the technique of Sketch-up. In addition, the basic concept and command of Architectural BIM (Building Information Modeling) are learned. It covers the basics 2D and 3D AutoCAD drawings, Fundamental figure, furniture drawing, text & sheet, door & window drawing, kitchen utensils drawing, stairs drawing, dimension, block, layer, measurement and plot.
Engineering Geology is the application of the science of geology to the understanding of geologic phenomena and the engineering solution of geologic hazards and other geological problems for society. Site investigation for major structures such as dams,factories and heavy buildings is one of the main parts of engineering applications. Others include earth material characterization, exploration and assessment of construction materials and assessment of difficult grounds, expansive and collapsible soils. The obtained information can be presented in a form of engineering geological maps,which is essential in several projects.
