Modules

Module Title Module Description & Objectives Contact Hours
Module 1:
Principle of safety at engineering workplace
The welfare of people working or operating within any manufacturing or engineering environment is of prime importance. All works should expect to be able to carry out their work in a safe manner that has no negative effect on their health and wellbeing. In fact, many organisation not only reduce risks and make improvements to working environment but try to make their own working environment superior to others, making it a competitive aspect when recruiting staff.

Health and safety in the workplace is about to measures designed to protect the health and safety of employees, visitors and the general public who may be affected b workplace activities. Safety measures are concerned with controlling and reducing risks to anyone who might be affected by these activities. Health and safety is controlled largely by legislation and regulations and the law is continually being revised and updated.

It is important that organisations are aware of these changes and keep up to date with developments. This unit will give learners an understanding of hazards and risk associated with health, safety and welfare in an engineering workplace, the associated legislation and regulations and of their roles in complying with related legal obligations. Learners will also be required to undertake full assessments and to appreciate the significant risks encountered in the work place and the measures taken to deal with them. They will also study the principles of reporting and recording accidents and incidents, again within a legal context

(60hours)
Module 2:
Computer aided engineering drawing
This unit will enable learners to produce engineering drawings of different components, assemblies and circuits using a variety of sketching, drawing and computer- aided drafting techniques. An understanding of how graphical methods can be used to communicate information about engineering products is an important step for anyone thinking of taking up a career in engineering. This unit gives learners an introduction to the principles of technical drawing and their applications using hand drawing and computer aided drafting (CAD) techniques.
On completion of this unit a leaner should:
• Be able to sketch engineering components
• Be able to interpret engineering drawings that comply with drawing standards.
• Be able to produce engineering drawings
• Be able to produce engineering drawings using a computer aided drafting (CAD) system.

(60 hours)
Module 3:
Fundamental of Revit
Students will be taught how to use the Autodesk Revit software, with a focus on creating and documenting full 3D project models for an urban environment, as well as how to use the internal topography tools and the Site Designer add-in extension. Begin by learning about the user interface and basic drawing, editing, and viewing tools. Then learn how to create topographical surfaces and modify the topography using Autodesk Revit tools and Site Designer tools. From there, move into modelling hardscapes using walls, floors, and stairs, and adding components such as trees, site furniture and planting areas. Finally, learning the processes that take the model to the construction documentation phase.

By the end of module students will be able to:
a. Understanding the purpose of BIM and how it is applied in the Autodesk Revit software.
b. Navigating the Autodesk Revit workspace and interface.
c. Working with the basic sketching and modifying tools.
d. Linking CAD and Revit files as the basis of a project.
e. Creating Levels and Grids as datum elements for the model.
f. Creating a 3D building model with walls, curtain walls, windows, and doors.
g. Adding component features, such as furniture and equipment.
h. Adding floors, ceilings, and roofs to the building model.
i. Modeling stairs, railings, and ramps.
j. Setting up sheets for plotting with text, dimensions, details, tags&schedules.
k. Creating details.

(60 hours)
Module 4:
fundamental of Building information modelling
This module aims at providing students with BIM Fundamentals knowledge, where BIM concepts and basics will be introduced. Lectures will be conducted to facilitate learning. The module will provide background knowledge on the work processes pertaining to modelling development during project phases. Elaboration on the types of BIM Model will be introduced and their purposes in which they are modelled for coordination and collaboration activities will also be explained. Students will also be introduced to the type of BIM software and tools available in the market.

By the end of module students will be able to:
a. BIM modelling
b. Site Analysis
c. E-submission
d. Visualisation
e. Clash Detection
f. 4D scheduling
g. 5D estimation
h. Sustainability

(60 hours)
Module 5:
BIM implementation strategies and setup
This module aims at providing students with in-depth knowledge on BIM deployment within an organisation, where students will be taught how to implement BIM Strategies and setup of necessary standards operating procedures and guidelines when adopting BIM in an organisation. Lectures will be conducted to facilitate learning. The module will thus aim to introduce students with Singapore BIM Guide, Submission Guideline and Essential Guides to facilitate setting up of standards. Students will also be introduced to BIM Risk Management where they will learn about BIM legal issues and BIM Particular Conditions. (60 hours)
Module 6:
BIM for landscape industries
This design studio module enables students to apply a systematic approach to project site survey and analysis throughout a landscape design project. It introduces students to ideas on regenerative landscape design, and allows them to understand typology of water sensitive urban design and their solutions in the urban context. It also heightens ecological awareness specific to landscape design and planning. (60 hours)
Module 7:
Industrial Attachment (IA)
This industrial attachment aims to provide students with practical training in managing technical functions, specifically those geared towards digital designing inengineering management activities that include development, operations, maintenance, and technology. The programme focuses on the fundamentals of supervisory capacity and is ideal if you are involved in or associated with technical functions, such as design, development, manufacturing, construction, operations, quality and maintenance. Skills, tools and techniques acquired in this programme are relevant to a wide variety of industry and business sectors. The programme offers balanced training in both technical and design management.

On completion of this module a student should:
I. Be competent to plan and monitor a design project
II. Be competent to implement the project plan within agreed procedures
III. Be able to present the structural and landscape design project outcome

24 Weeks
