Foundation in Engineering
Intake for the 3-semester Foundation Programme is in April and July.
Intake for the 2-semester Foundation Programme is in September.
The programmes is based on a semester system. Each semester consists of 10-12 teaching weeks, plus time for assessment. The main unit of instruction is the lecture, typically 2 to 3 hour-long sessions where students are familiarised with a subject's main theoretical concepts and ideas. In addition, lab work, tutorials and assignments form the bulk of the learning experience and assessment. Academic tutorials are held within the semesters to provide students with the opportunity to participate in class discussions, improve their presentation skills and to apply theoretical concepts to practical issues.
Non-academic tutorials are held in order to expose students to topical issues for discussions and to assist students on a one to one basis on personal or academic issues.
For progression into the undergraduate programmes at the Schools of Engineering, students must obtain an average of at least 40% in the subject areas of Mathematics, Physical Sciences, IT and English Studies. A mark of at least 30% must be obtained in every module.
The nature of the assessment depends upon the individual module but is mainly based on lab work, assignments and examinations.
