OVERVIEW

Noora Engineering Preparation for High School

This course has been developed to be of interest to all those Engineering students who are unable to attend our infamous Engineering Summer School for Senior High School found here https://www.literegal.co.uk/summer-school/courses-ages-15-18/engineering-preparation/.

It is a recommended course for any students wishing or thinking of studying engineering in the future at a top University in the UK or abroad. All students who take this course should expect to work hard and be challenged. The course will provide a thorough grounding of all areas of Engineering – civil , mechanical, aeronautical and electrical engineering as well as strengthen the students Maths needed in engineering.

This Online Engineering course is for all students aged 15-18 from the UK and abroad who are interested in Engineering and because of the COVID–19 are unable to attend the face to face traditional Engineering Summer School.

The course is designed for all student who would like to learn design and build engineering objects and learn the principals of engineering through these objects. The Online Engineering course will be taught through a combination Zoom and Microsoft Meeting and involve interactive e-learning workshops and lessons, virtual platform through Icloud and Google Drive.

It is designed to keep all students busy and engaged during the summer period and who are interested in studying Engineering at University. This course will be invaluable help to those students who wish to study Engineering at a top University, and wish to know what areas of specialism in Engineering will suit them. The contents of the Online Engineering Preparation will be challenging to all students aged 15-18 and will cover the course contents of the 1st year of Engineering at University. It will cover all the major aspects of Engineering taught in a 21st century style to keep students engaged and learning through a mixture of workshops and theory.

Students will learn about the different branches and disciplines of engineering:

Aeronautical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Earth Sciences Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Material Engineering, Mechanical Engineering

As Maths forms a fundamental basis of Engineering and aspiring engineers need to be good at Maths, this online course will also provide you with the Maths foundation. University engineering students should find the Maths used in Engineering challenging and rewarding.

Maths Covered: Algebra, Calculus Intermediate to Advanced, Trigonometry, Statistics, Differential Equations

Students will also be “exposed” to practical simulations to design and construct structures to reinforce that knowledge gained. Through theory and practical application and group discussion the learning will be enjoyable and rewarding and intellectually stimulating.

The course allows students to lean the concepts challenges, theory and mathematics behind modern engineering. Students will be involved in projects that aim to bring engineering solutions to 21st century global challenges that face us. It will involve the engineering and design and build of:

1/ Global challenges to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through engineering – develop clean and renewable technologies – solar, wind – photovoltaic, thermoelectrics, wind energy

2/ Engineering fundamentals in exploring sea , space and earth – to include vehicles- design and build challenges faced by engineering in vehicles systems to explore hostile territories

3/ The engineering  challenges behind driverless vehicles -  aeronautical engineering , couples with mechanical engineering - machine and robotics to enhance our 21st century lives – the drones, artificial intelligence, autonomous vehicles

4/ Civil engineering – the exploration of 21st century new building materials - how to build higher and stronger to solve our housing crisis

5/ Precision devices -  machines – robotics

6/Nano engineering

WORKSHOPS

A lot of the Online Engineering course will be online workshops that will enable students to learn by visualising engineering and by designing and building models and structures. Engineering kits that will be used and sent in advance for students to construct during workshops will include : 

1/ Mini drone construct and build kit

2/ Arduino electronic starter engineering kit

3/ Makeblock mbot ranger transformable

4/ Horizon fuel cell car and horizon hydro car

5/ Combustion engine and jet engine design and build kit
