Develop your understanding of engineering design and the role of an engineer
This four-week course will develop your engineering skills and understanding for university study and work.
You’ll gain a thorough introduction to engineering principles, engineering design, and leading engineering technologies.
Learn about modern engineering technologies
This hands-on and practical course has a strong emphasis on the real work that engineers do every day. Through a combination of videos, articles, and mini-projects, you’ll explore the role of engineers in society, and look at the typical day in the life of an engineer.
As you explore key engineering technologies and challenges, you’ll consider the ways engineers think and communicate, and learn the value of soft skills like empathy and teamwork for working in engineering.
Learn engineering design and start problem-solving with engineering
Under the guidance of global experts, you’ll discover the latest in engineering design and technology.
You’ll demonstrate engineering design methodologies in practice, and learn how to define a problem, create a
low-fidelity prototype, and undertake engineering problem-solving.
You’ll even have the chance to apply some of the design methodologies to your own engineering design.
Discover the best-known engineering processes across a range of engineering areas
This course is led by experts at The Faculty of Natural and Mathematical Sciences at King’s College London.
You’ll learn from internationally-renowned scientists and engineers about major engineering branches, including mechanical, material, and technological, as well as evolving areas like connectivity, networks and environmental engineering.
By the end of the course, you’ll know how to start to tackle engineering projects, as well as what soft skills you need to succeed as an engineer.
This course has been created for refugees, displaced people and the communities supporting them in the MENA (Middle East and Northern Africa) region who wish to study engineering at a university in English. It has been created as part of the PADILEIA project.
However, it will be useful for anyone who wants a taster of studying engineering at university, as well as anyone interested in how engineers think, approach problems, and follow projects from ideas to solutions.
