- Module Leader(s): Dr Kayvan Pazouki
- Lecturer: Dr Ivan CK Tam
- Owning School: Engineering
- Teaching Location: Singapore
|Semester 1 Credit Value:||10|
|Semester 2 Credit Value:||10|
To develop knowledge and understanding of:
A1 - Engineering Design and IT fundamentals
A2 - The multi-disciplinary nature of marine propulsion systems design
A3 - Rationale for machinery selection, installation and operation
Outline Of Syllabus
This module provides students with a deep and detailed understanding of engineering design rationale, procedures and multiple criteria design. Students will learn how to arrange and implement machinery space, main/auxiliary power systems and auxiliary machinery facilities onboard ships. Specific attention will be given to standard and non-standard propulsion units. Teamwork and leadership qualities are introduced, exercised and assessed.

Teaching Rationale And Relationship
The use of lectures as the principal teaching method is an effective means to assist in the acquisition of a knowledge base that will facilitate understanding of a sizeable and detailed body of material (IKO1-3).
Tutorials provide a forum in which students are given the opportunity to develop subject-specific skills, negotiate their problems with tutors and their peers in a less formal approach (IS01-2).
The group project will provide a platform for team work, active participation to exercise team-membership or leadership skills, planning, initiative, organisational, interpersonal, oral presentation, problem solving and numeracy skills (ISO1-4).
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners

Assessment Rationale And Relationship
The examination allows students an opportunity to demonstrate knowledge, understanding and the possession of subject-specific and key skills. This medium also allows students to demonstrate intended learning outcomes across a wide range of topics within the syllabus.
The design project work allows students an opportunity to demonstrate written communication skills, design skills, IT skills and depth of understanding.
The Graduate Skills Framework entries indicated as 'A' are also assessed in this way.
