I am a Korean-New Zealander who live in Christchurch, New Zealand. I have been living here since I was 10, hence it was very natural for me to become bi-lingual, up to native standard in both languages. Ever since I was in the elementary school, I had strong interests in machines, vehicles and electronics, which kept building through my high school years. Through my passions on these elements, I could choose to go to engineering school. Through the first two years in my degree I observed myself as an efficient collaborator who moves projects forward in a competent, technically sound manner. Inspire stakeholders to share ideas and information for project success. Seeking a challenging position with a leading engineering firm, particularly focused on mechanical construction/assembly. Considering all these features of myself, I am currently striving to become a better engineer, seeking for a great opportunity to work with a professional and intelligent team.
I have an ambition to become a successful mechanical engineer who works for vehicle manufacturing companies such as Porsche, BMW and Cadillac.
This skills-based course will introduce students to the "engineering process". Through a series of lectures, exercises and projects, the students will gain experience in specific skills and activities that contribute to the engineering process. Examples include problem solving, technical sketching, team work and report writing. Additionally, the importance of sustainability, ethics and biculturalism in an engineering context will be introduced. Students will also gain a better understanding of the different engineering disciplines in regards to a career choice.
This is a required course for all Engineering Programmes as well as Physics and Astronomy degrees. PHYS101 builds on NCEA level 3 physics to develop Mechanics, Conservation Laws, Fluids, Waves, Thermal Physics, and Electromagnetism into an essential foundation for science and technology understanding.
A first course in the methods and applications of engineering mathematics. Topics include calculus, linear algebra, and modelling techniques. This Course is designed for engineering students who have done well in NCEA Mathematics with calculus.
A continuation of EMTH118. Topics covered include methods and Engineering applications of calculus, differential equations, and linear algebra, along with an introduction to probability. This course is a prerequisite for many courses in engineering mathematics and other subjects at 200 level.
Atoms and the periodic table; chemical bonding; reduction and oxidation reactions; properties of gases; introduction to thermodynamics; kinetics; chemical equilibrium; Gibbs energy and the second law of thermodynamics; aqueous chemistry; acid-base equilibrium.
A course for students advancing in Engineering programmes that requires in-depth analysis of components and structures, ENGR102 reinforces concepts of free-body diagrams and the mechanics of real life applications (both statics and dynamics).
Axial, torsional, transverse and bending loads; compound states of stress, principal stresses and strains; basic theories of failure for ductile and brittle materials; buckling including local buckling effects; basic energy methods; impact theory.
This course provides an introduction to the concept of energy and the laws governing the transfers and transformations of energy. The course begins with an emphasis on thermodynamic properties and the First and Second Law analysis of systems and control volumes. This follows with an integration of these concepts into the analysis of basic power cycles. The course continues with an emphasis on the analysis of power and refrigeration cycles and the application of basic principles to engineering problems.
Dynamics and kinematics of machine elements; derivations and fundamental analysis of equation of motion of single-degree-of-freedom systems; vibrations: free and forced vibrations (harmonic, periodic, quasi- and aperiodic), introduction to computational methods to solve differential equations (Euler, Newmark-Beta), multi-degree-of-freedom systems.
Use of the package MATLAB including matrix algebra, user-defined functions, surface plotting. Numerical methods including solutions of systems of linear equations, solution of ordinary differential equations and systems of equations, approximation techniques. Modelling projects and engineering applications.
