You will study a range of traditional and modern topics such as joining technology and nanomaterials. The course will provide you with a high level of understanding of new and current materials, their applications, and design issues related to their use. You will also develop your reporting and research skills and extend your problem solving and written and verbal communication skills. Many successful students from this course have gone on to do PhD research with us. The course gives an insight into the field of materials, bridging the gap between many science and engineering disciplines. Delivery The one year course includes taught modules and a major research project in the form of a dissertation. The two year course is designed for students who require extra English tuition, or who need further training in certain other key background skills. You take a preparatory year comprising English language and other relevant introductory modules, including engineering modules. You then continue into the second year and take the one year version of the course as described above.</p> Tue, 01/23/2018 - 11:32 1108614 1108614 User Centred Design of Domestic Energy Feedback - Research Degree https://newengineer.com/program/user-centred-design-of-domestic-energy-feedback-research-degree-907008 <p>Congratulations on taking your first steps toward a Research Degree with Coventry’s Faculty of Engineering, Environment and Computing.

Through original approaches from world-leading experts, we’re aiming for our research to make a tangible difference to the way we live. As a research student you are an integral part of Coventry’s lively and diverse research community and contribute to our reputation for excellence. With our exceptional facilities and superb support mechanisms you are afforded every opportunity for academic success. THE PROJECT In response to the need to reduce carbon emissions due to the housing sector, the aim of this PhD is to contribute to developing the state of the art in energy feedback for occupants. There are three related objectives, which will form iterative phases. The first is to engage with a representative sample of occupants to carry out participatory design of energy feedback interfaces. This will involve user studies to investigate and characterise occupant energy behaviour. The second is to derive requirements for interface designs, and run participatory design sessions with occupants both individually and in groups to rapidly prototype preferred solutions, using a range of resources. The third objective is to create and deploy fully working energy feedback systems back to occupants and study their engagement and use. This deployment phase will itself form the next iteration of user studies, to be followed by further participatory design and deployment to optimise the feedback system.</p> Tue, 01/23/2018 - 11:06 907008 907008 Senior UX Designer https://newengineer.com/job/senior-ux-designer-1126166 <p><strong>Responsibilities</strong></p> <ul> <li> <p>Be highly consultative, working with clients to understand their challenges, frustrations and opportunities</p> </li> <li> <p>Act as practitioning project lead on large, complex, high risk assignments, often multidisciplinary in nature, delivering on time and on budget, in line with project and client requirements</p> </li> <li> <p>Be a hands-on practitioner to create high level strategy, user experiences, digital journeys and final designs</p> </li> <li> <p>Act as a UX/UCD evangelist, seeking opportunities and creating initiatives to inspire and build long-standing, consultative, senior relationships</p> </li> <li> <p>Resolve complex client issues and agree way forward.

This includes the design and planning of both urban and rural landscapes with the potential to study landscape projects in a range of country contexts. We will work with you to expand on your ability to think critically about the design of place and space. You will develop advanced skills so that you can deal with complex aspects of landscape design and planning in a creative and innovative way. You will develop an advanced knowledge and understanding of the way landscape has been conceptualised and theorised at different times and in different places, informed by relevant research findings and relevant practice. You will consider this historical context with changes in the environment and the impact this will have on landscape architecture in the future. The studio based design projects offer an opportunity for you to refine your design skills. The practical skills you will develop include being able to creatively respond to complex architectural briefs and generating design proposals. You will be able to evaluate the materials, process and techniques that apply to landscape architectural projects and integrate these into your proposals.</p> Tue, 01/23/2018 - 01:18 1108638 1108638 Mechanical Technology A.A.S. https://newengineer.com/program/mechanical-technology-aas-890322 <p>The Mechanical Technology program at Clinton Community College is designed to prepare students for employment in the manufactur ing industries.

In all fields the chemical engineer needs to balance the need to manufacture products economically with meeting safety and environmental requirements. Chemical engineers play a leading role in new and emerging technologies such as nanotechnology, carbon capture, the production of renewable fuels, and increasingly work at the interface between engineering and the life sciences. These novel areas are reflected in the range of option courses available to our students.</p> Tue, 01/23/2018 - 01:09 620282 620282
