Short Courses in Engineering & Technology

The discipline is based on the application of existing technology within a field of engineering through the use of basic engineering principles and technical skills. As such, undergraduate and graduate programmes in the field focus primarily on the applied aspects of science and engineering to equip graduates with practical technical skills in product improvement, manufacturing, construction or engineering operational functions.Studying engineering equips students with practical skills to acquire and apply scientific, mathematical, economic, social and practical knowledge to design and build structures, machines, devices, systems, materials and processes that safely serve as a solution to the needs of society. Combined with knowledge and processes related to technology, programmes in engineering and technology field provide students tools and skills to manipulate materials so to shape and change the physical world to meet needs. Through hands-on training, students are encouraged to come up with creative applications of scientific principles.

Aeroelasticity Certificate Aeroelasticity
  • Feb 2017
  • EEA  600 per module
  • International  600 per module
  • 3 months

Aeroelasticity is the interaction between structural dynamics and unsteady aerodynamic flow over the structure. It is an important area of study for two main reasons. First the interaction can lead to static or dynamic instabilities which can result in failure of the structure. Secondly the loads calculated using aeroelastic simulations are significantly different for flexible structures compared to decoupled structural and aerodynamic simulations.
