ENGG1800: Introduction to Engineering A

Introduction to Engineering ENGG1800 is a unit for first year students undertaking “Flexible First Year” or other students interested in Engineering. It is designed to be taken with ENGF1112 as part of “Flexible First Year”. Through this unit students will complete two six week modules, the first on “Materials and Forces” and the second on “Fluids and energy”. Through these modules students will be exposed to applications in the engineering disciplines of Aeronautical, Biomedical, Chemical, Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical.
