Module Overview
Series of experiments in fluid mechanics and heat transfer, thermodynamics, solid mechanics, dynamics, control and electrical engineering.

Completion of the progress requirements of Level HE1

Module Aims

To apply knowledge and experience previously gained to a variety of experiments that compliment (though are not dependent on) material covered in other modules.

Learning Outcomes
