Systems Engineering for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles - AERO97080
This module gives the student an introduction to engineering systems and applies the systems engineering tools to the design of UAVs. In the process, it aims to teach the students how to design and control UAVs, which aerodynamic principles are applicable for UAV flight and to show them their multiple applications. It will also examine the challenges in the wider adoption of UAVs, including operation in controlled airspace and interoperability with piloted aircraft.
Engineering Practice 2: Project Development - AERO50010
The planning and bidding for projects, as well as the review of project proposals, are a common activity practising engineers engage in, whether working in industry or academia. Through this module you will be introduced to the basic considerations involved in developing a project proposal, from understanding your customers and their needs, to planning and costing a project, and identifying and mitigating risks. Skills developed in this module will be utilised during subsequent project work.
