 1.   Key Information

Module/Unit title:      Technical Drawing and Design for Engineers


Module Tutor:           Ian Ulyatt


Location of Delivery: Village Hall


2.   Introduction to the Module

ISG will develop an Education Strategy to improve the learning environment. Key areas of focus are:

  1. Student Satisfaction. We will improve student satisfaction by: maintaining high quality engineering programmes, investment in improved facilities, improving student support and focusing on high quality teaching and learning.
  2. High quality teaching and learning. We will encourage sharing of best practice across the ISG, promote University policy to ensure that all academic members of staff acquire teaching qualifications or recognition, and embed personal development planning and review. We will enhance support for the development of teaching practice, including the peer observation scheme.
  3. Student as Producer. Each student will develop its own approach to “student as producer,” expressing the concepts of the University’s policy into the idiom of the discipline.
  4. Accredited programmes of study. We will maintain our approach to securing accreditation from approved professional bodies when strategically relevant.
  5. Enterprise engagement. The ISG will engage enterprises in curriculum development and delivery.
  6. Student attainment. We will monitor the rates of completion and degree standards against national benchmarks, ensure that standards are appropriate via external examiner reports, and continually review assessment approaches and teaching mechanisms.
  7. Employability. We will improve employability by appropriate focus of the portfolio, high quality employability training embedded in programmes, improving links and encouraging student involvement.
  8. Facilities. The provision of high quality facilities, including accessible learning spaces, high specification teaching workrooms.


The purpose of this module is to provide students with development opportunities for the practical skills that are required throughout their studies, and beyond. Students have the opportunity to develop their engineering communication skills and gain 3D computer modelling experience.

This module emphasises the importance of integrating skills and knowledge from different parts of the degree programme in order to solve problems through the application of fundamental engineering science. The material introduced in this module will be revisited during the subsequent years of the degree programme.

6.   Attendance Requirements:


International students who are non-EEA nationals and in possession of entry clearance / leave to remain as a student (student visa) are required to be in regular attendance at Study Group’s ISC. Failure to do so is considered to be a breach of the immigration regulations.  From the academic year 2008/09 onwards, Study Group’s ISC is required to inform the UKBA (Home Office) of significant unauthorised absences by any student visa holders.


7.   Mark Scheme for the Coursework Assignment

90-100%: A range of marks consistent with a first where the work is exceptional in all areas;


80-89%: a range of marks consistent with a first where the work is exceptional in most areas.


70-79%: a range of marks consistent with a first. Work which shows excellent content, organisation and presentation, reasoning and originality; evidence of independent reading and thinking and a clear and authoritative grasp of theoretical positions; ability to sustain an argument, to think analytically and/or critically and to synthesise material effectively.


60-69%: a range of marks consistent with an upper second. Well-organised and lucid coverage of the main points in an answer; intelligent interpretation and confident use of evidence, examples and references; clear evidence of critical judgement in selecting, ordering and analysing content; demonstrates some ability to synthesise material and to construct responses, which reveal insight and may offer some originality.


50-59%: a range of marks consistent with lower second; shows a grasp of the main issues and uses relevant materials in a generally business-like approach, restricted evidence of additional reading; possible unevenness in structure of answers and failure to understand the more subtle points: some critical analysis and a modest degree of insight should be present.


40-49%: a range of marks which is consistent with third class; demonstrates limited understanding with no enrichment of the basic course material presented in classes; superficial lines of argument and muddled presentation; little or no attempt to relate issues to a broader framework; lower end of the range equates to a minimum or threshold pass.


35-39%: achieves many of the learning outcomes required for a mark of 40% but falls short in one or more areas; not a pass grade but may be sufficient to merit progression to the next level.


30-34%: a fail; may achieve some learning outcomes but falls short in most areas; shows considerable lack of understanding of basic course material and little evidence of research.


0-29%: a fail; basic factual errors of considerable magnitude showing little understanding of basic course material; falls substantially short of the learning outcomes for compensation.

You are required to demonstrate that you have met all the learning outcomes to satisfy the module requirements.  Therefore it is important you demonstrate competence in all coursework and examination assessments.


To meet the learning outcomes you will need to attend all lectures and seminars. If your attendance is below 85% it is unlikely you will meet the learning outcomes.

11.   Module tutor’s report on the last presentation of the module


University of Lincoln ISC




International Year One Engineering


TERM:            Summer 1                                                                    YEAR 2015/16


MODULE:      Technical Drawing and Design for Engineers


MODULE TUTOR(s): Ian Ulyatt

Please comment on the successful areas of the module.


The student gained an in-depth understand of engineering drawing and was given a comprehensive overview of how to design / draw and use computer aided design for the production these engineering representations. A total of material was given to them to aid their future development. This include 40 mp4 files, 20 word documents, 18 ppt, 13 pdf’s and various web address to aid their personal development as engineers.


What was not so successful?

Getting the students to use the information supplied on Blackboard and using this material in their portfolio of work.




Is there anything that you will be changing as a result of your comments above? (i.e. teaching style, teaching methods etc)


The ordering of the some of the seminars topics.

Checking the student has accessed this material


Any other comments, recommendations for changes?


I will be adding more material on Blackboard and maybe, introduce a midterm written assignment, to check that students are completing the design and coursework.
