These days most engineering tasks require a 'systems approach'. Knowledge, design skills, theory and a variety of tools will combine in a systematic way to complete a complex task. This course is a practical introduction to this approach. Elementary building blocks and theory covered in previous courses will be combined to design and develop more complex systems. Working in teams will be an essential part of this course.
Systems that will be covered include: structural systems, such as concrete and fibre composite beams. Teams will have to design, build and test their own beam; road design using Moss software; water and sewerage systems.
