    This module describes the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a small network. Students learn how to configure a router and a switch for basic functionality. By the end of this module, students will be able to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues with virtual LANs and interVLAN routing in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.


  • ROBOTICS & COMMUNICATION SPECIALISATION OPTION

  • Communication Systems

    (4 Credit Units)

    This module covers the fundamentals of analogue communication principles. Key topics covered in this module include components of a basic communication system, and factors that affect communication performance. The techniques of modulation and demodulation will be explained to allow students to understand and relate important concepts, including signal representation, performance measurements and system applications.

Year 3

  • COMMON MODULES

  • Integrated Real-world Project 5

    (4 Credit Units)

    The aim of this module is for students to apply the knowledge learnt, their initiative and creative ability and practical skills to real-world engineering projects. These projects may take the form of an investigation or the development of engineering hardware, software or both. Students will work in teams to undertake the project development underpinned by the design thinking approach. On completion of the module, students will be able to communicate their results, concepts and ideas of the engineering projects they have undertaken and develop confidence in tackling projects at higher levels.

    This module will also imbue in students a sense of civic consciousness in the context of engineering and sustainability. It will develop students’ competencies in sustainable development, raise their awareness of sustainability in the context of society and the environment, and appreciate the impact engineering solutions may have on the environment.

  • Internet of Things

    (4 Credit Units)

    This module aims to equip students with a basic fundamental in the Internet of Things (IoT). Students will learn the system architecture of a typical IoT system with a good understanding of functionalities of its building blocks. They will acquire the necessary skills and knowledge through a series of practical exercises. Upon completion of the module, students will be able to implement a simple IoT system prototype with off-the-shelf equipment, platforms or services.

  • Mobile Application Programming

    (4 Credit Units)

    This module aims to provide students with hands-on training on basic mobile applications development using an open-source platform. Students will learn basic mobile app architecture and design concepts. They will also have a good understanding of the different building blocks in a mobile app.

  • Project ID: Connecting the Dots^

    (4 Credit Units)
  • ^ Interdisciplinary Studies (IS) modules account for 13 credit units of the diploma curriculum. They include modules in communication, innovation and world issues, as well as an interdisciplinary project.

  • COMPUTER NETWORK SPECIALISATION OPTION

  • Scaling & Connecting Networks

    (4 Credit Units)

    This module describes the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in larger and more complex networks and on the WAN technologies and network services required by converged applications in a complex network. Students learn how to configure routers and switches for advanced functionality. By the end of this module, students will be able to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues with OSPF, EIGRP, and STP in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. Students will also develop the knowledge and skills needed to implement a WLAN in a small-to-medium network, configure PPPoE, GRE, single-homed eBGP, extended IPv4 and IPv6 ACLs., SNMP and Cisco SPAN, QoS and the trends in networking including Cloud, virtualization, and SDN.


  • ROBOTICS & COMMUNICATION SPECIALISATION OPTION

  • Embedded Robotics

    (4 Credit Units)

    This module provides an introduction to the fundamental analysis of various mechanisms and electrical circuits within the context of robotics discipline. It also covers different types of sensors used in robotics applications. The operating principles of sensors (infrared light, ultrasonic sound and embedded vision) as well as the basic signal conditioning such as signal amplification and noise filtering.

  • 6-Month Internship (Local/Overseas)

    (20 Credit Units)
