About this Unit
An understanding of how the built environment works is essential to designers and construction professionals. This unit provides an introduction to physical units of measure, tolerance, statics, dynamics and optics. It also introduces students to electricity and magnetism as well as the concepts of momentum, energy, work, power and the operation of motors and machine. Students engage with these concepts through a hands-on learning experience including practical projects and live demonstrations.
