Engineering Systems Design 2 builds directly on Engineering Design Systems Design 1 by further developing the students' understanding of the engineering method and the importance of engineering in society. Engineering Systems Design 2 focuses on inter-relationships in engineering systems drawing on important examples from lightweight structures and digital electronic circuits. The importance of modelling change through dynamic models is also emphasized. Together with Engineering Systems Design 1, this subject will prepare students for an exciting and rigorous engineering education that will allow them to serve the needs of an increasingly complex society.
