What are the entry requirements?
There are no formal entry requirements for participants wishing to take this module as a single subject, however these are not introductory level modules and some familiarity with the area as well as a level of independent study would be expected for exam success. Participants taking this module as part of the Bachelor of Engineering in Manufacturing Technology must meet the entry requirements outlined on the relevant course pages.
ENGLISH LANGUAGE: Applicants who do nto have English as their first language must ensure they satisfy English Language requirements. For entry to undergraduate courses, a minimum score of 5.5 in an IELTS exam is required. For postgraduate courses, a minimum of 6.0 is required. It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure their English proficiency meets these requirements.
What modules will I study?
Electronic manufacturing process
Electronic packaging and components
PCB engineering and design
POCB assembly process
12 weeks, 3 hours per week from 7.00pm to 10.00pm
This programme may be offered again in the 2022-2023 academic year. This will be confirmed in early Summer 2022
What will the time committment be?
Each 5 credits will normally equate to approximately 100 Total Learning Hours. Total Learning Hours includes the time you spend in class (lectures, tutorials, practical elements) and the time you spend completing work outside of college. The balance between these two varies by discipline, and by level of study. You should bear in mind that the workload will increase at particular times e.g. when assignments are due.
Each taught module has a programme of continuous assessment worth 50% and a final exam worth 50%. It is necessary to pass both elements to achieve an award in the module.
Participants not registered on the Degree may request a TUS Subject Certificate (Level 7, 5 Credits) on successful completion of the module. Students registered on the Degree will receive ECTS credits for each group of modules successfully completed. Accumulation of 60 credits will lead to the Degree Award.
NOTE: This module may be completed as a stand-alone course, or it may be completed by eligible participants for the credit towards the award of Bachelor of Engineering in Manufacturing Technology (Level 7).
