## NTU Module Review: MA2002 Theory of Mechanism

The purpose of a mechanism is to transmit motion and force. This course introduces the students some basic mechanisms including linkages, cams and gears. Mechanisms are the building blocks of a machine. In a machine design problem, very often the first task is to determine the type and configurations of mechanisms to provide the desired motions. Once the kinematic issues are addressed, the dynamic analysis can then be performed. In this course, techniques for the kinematic and dynamic analyses of mechanisms will be covered. A course in the theory of mechanisms is essential for any mechanical engineers as the knowledge is fundamental in understanding the working of machines. Apart from analytical ability, it also provides students the opportunities to develop their design capability.

## NTU Module Review: MA1008 Introduction to Computational Thinking

Computational thinking (CT) is a problem solving process with the aid of computer; i.e. formulating a problem and expressing its solution in such a way that a computer can effectively carry it out. It includes a number of characteristics, such as breaking a problem into small and repetitive ordered steps, logically ordering and analyzing data and creating solutions that can be effectively implemented as algorithms running on computer. As such, CT is essential not only to the Computer Science discipline, but also can be used to support problem solving across all disciplines, including math, science, engineering, business, finance and humanities. The aim of this course is hence to take you students with no prior experience of thinking in a computational manner to a point where you can derive simple algorithms and code programs to solve some basic problems in your domain of studies. You will also learn current computer languages, such as Python, for the coding. In addition, the course will include topics on the internal operations of a processor, and raise awareness on the socio-ethical issues arising from the pervasiveness of computing technology.

## NTU Mechanical Engineering Review, Full Courseware Package & Module Bundle

Mechanical engineering has been described as the ‘mother of all engineering’, thanks to its all-encompassing nature. Over the years, the study of mechanical engineering has grown from producing basic, functional products, to designing advanced, technology-based items that are smaller, smarter, and greener than ever before.

The specialisations within MAE reflect the diverse nature of the discipline, and are testament to MAE’s comprehensive approach to mechanical engineering teaching and researching. Additionally, our curriculum is constantly updated to match various industries’ evolving trends, so NTU MAE graduates always have the most modern, relevant, and immediately applicable knowledge at their fingertips.
