The module aims to provide the ability to communicate engineering concepts using drawing languages needed for product design and scientific reporting of practical experiences. Learners will also familiarize themselves with the basic techniques that are required in running and analysing laboratory experiments.

This course focuses on the most essential forms of engineering communications, including programming, graphical languages and reporting.
The first part of the course is concerned with graphical engineering communication, and builds up on the faculty led course ENGS102P Design and Professional Practice, to develop specific skills related with mechanical engineering drawing as a means of communicating engineering concepts and product design. The course aims at providing a comprehensive introduction to drafting, sketching, and CAD transitioning techniques; focusing on mechanical engineering features and manufacturing processes. A one-day workshop practice course will complement this section of the course, enabling the students to familiarize themselves with basic operations on workshop machinery.
The second part of the course aims at introducing the basic techniques that are required by Mechanical Engineering students in running and analysing laboratory experiments. This section of the course is horizontally integrated to replace traditional discipline specific laboratory courses in the different engineering disciplines, with the objective is to provide a more integrated and life-long learning skills, better focused on methodologies for interpreting engineering problems, analysing data, interpreting and presenting results.
