Engineering

More than ever before in human history, we are building. In addition to physical structures and complex machinery, we are building in the virtual world. The Engineering IFP is ideal preparation for undergraduate study in a range of fields.
DLD College London Engineering IFP

Engineers need to be able to address the needs of the future. Engineering is an extremely broad field encompassing civil, mechanical, electrical, electronic, aeronautical, automotive and biomedical engineering. Successful graduates of the DLD College London IFP in Engineering have received offers for prestigious courses such as Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Manchester and Mechanical Engineering at Queen Mary, University of London. The inclusion of the Advanced Mathematics content gives students access to other courses including Computer Science.

In addition to the common Key Components Strand, students will study the following subject components:

 

Engineering Subject Components

Advanced Mathematics I (Faculty of Mathematics)

More than ever before in human history, we are building. In addition to physical structures and complex machinery, we are building in the virtual world. Engineers need to be able to address the needs of the future. Advanced Mathematics 1 equips learners with the core skills required to embark on further study of this dynamic field.

  • Quadratic Functions and Inequalities
  • Exponential and Logarithmic functions
  • Transformations of Graphs
  • Coordinate Geometry
  • Radian measures, Trigonometric Functions and Equations
  • Differentiation including parametric equations

Assessment Method: Written assignment

Advanced Mathematics II (Faculty of Mathematics)

Building on prior study, in Advanced Mathematics II students will expand their knowledge and skills gained and apply them to more complex issues. This module demands an analytical and synthetic approach that allows learners to develop engineering knowledge, skills, imagination and experience to the highest levels in readiness for their future studies and career.

  • Partial fractions
  • Binomial Expansion
  • Arithmetic and Geometric series
  • Integration including parametric equations and differential equations
  • Vectors in two and three dimensions
  • Numerical Methods

Assessment Method: Written assignment

The Foundations of Physics (Faculty of Science)

The aim is to introduce important conventions and principles that permeate physics, giving students the ability to effectively communicate their knowledge. Understanding the key concepts, will enable students to apply mathematical models to various situations so as to be able to analyse and link ideas.

  • Quantities and units
  • Basic principles of kinematics
  • Basic principles of dynamics
  • Work, energy and power
  • Properties of solids
  • Circular motion
  • Simple Harmonic Motion and its effects

Assessment Method: Written exam

The Applications of Physics (Faculty of Science)

Building on the content of the first Unit, this Unit introduces a breadth and depth of subject matter that allows students to wrestle with abstract ideas. More challenging topics are covered and new models introduced to explain our observations. Furthermore, conflicts will be introduced to show how scientific theories and
understanding change as new evidence is obtained.

  • Electric currents and their effects
  • Electric circuits
  • Charge and electric fields
  • Capacitors
  • Magnetic fields
  • Electromagnetic induction
  • Transformers and the transmission of electrical power
  • Waves and wave motion
  • Reflection and refraction
  • Optical fibres and their applications
  • Superposition
