Mathematics and Engineering 1 - BIOE40005
The aims of this module are to:
Mechanics and Electronics 1 - BIOE40006
To teach students introductory Newtonian mechanics - including equations of motion, conservation of linear and angular momentum, and conservation of energy - with specific consideration given to particle mechanics and rigid body mechanics, and to show how these concepts can be used to study bioengineering problems.
- Specifically, to introduce them to the common components used in electronic equipment, the functions they perform, and the way they can usefully be interconnected to form circuits.
- To introduce students to the various techniques available to predict the performance of circuits.
Students will be taught over three terms using a combination of lectures, labs and study groups. Lecture sessions will be made available on Panopto for review and supplemented with technologies to promote active engagement during the lecture such as 'learning catalytics'. Study groups focusing on problem sheets will be based on taught content from lectures to reinforce these topics and allow students to test their understanding. Labs will focus on building practical skills and reinforcing the theoretical topics discussed in lectures.
Vibrations and Waves
To give students a theoretical and practical introduction to basic fundamental concepts in maths, engineering and physics
