Most T193 students have completed T192 (Engineering: origins, methods, context) before they start T193.
Please remember that T193 is a 30 credit module, which as a rule of thumb will require 300 hours of study. The module runs over 21 weeks, so approximately 14 hours per week on average.If you are considering studying this module without having completed T192, here are a selection of quiz questions, based on T192 material, which will help you get a flavour of the topics, gauge the level, test your preparation, and identify potential areas for revision prior to starting T193.
The answer revealed after completing each question directs to the specific section of the T192 printed materials where the corresponding topic is covered. A pdf version of the T192 printed materials will be available on the T193 website under resources once you enrol on T193. If you identify any topics you need to revise, you are recommended to study the appropriate sections of the T192 printed materials.
This quiz represents a selfassessment tool. You can choose to try just some of the questions.
Entering answers
For most questions, you need to enter answers that are numbers or algebraic expressions. Use the syntax below to enter your answer. Note that you may sometimes get an error message while you are entering your answer, but this will disappear once you have entered the whole answer, provided your syntax is correct.
When you enter a number, do not include any units or any description of rounding. Where a question requires an algebraic answer, the system will usually accept any algebraic expression or equation equivalent to the correct solution, unless the question specifically asks for a particular form. Note that the input is casesensitive, so the variable ‘Y’ is different from the variable ‘y’. Remember that BIDMAS rules apply when entering expressions on a line, and you may sometimes need to use brackets to group things together.
Remember to use * to indicate multiplication.

Stage 2 Diagnostic and prep material

T212 requires students to be numerate and confident when manipulating equations. Although most of the mathematics is relatively simple, inadequately prepared students may struggle. Also it is necessary to know some basic physics of electricity and electrons.
This quiz is designed to enable potential students to decide if they are ready to study T212.
The quiz has six parts. The instructions tell you how to interpret your results and whether or not you are ready for T212.
The quiz has six sections:
 Numbers and indices
 Fundamentals of voltage, current and resistance
 Algebra and manipulating equations
 Trigonometry
 Basic Physics
 Searching the internet
Your progress through the test will be stored in your browser, so you can leave the test and return on another day if you don't have time to complete it now.


Stage 3 Diagnostic and prep material

This quiz is intended to help you assess whether you have the necessary background knowledge and skills to successfully study T366 Nanoscale engineering. There are 30 questions, divided into three sections covering maths, engineering and chemistry, reflecting the multidisciplinary nature of T366.
You can have up to three attempts at each question and most questions offer hints after an incorrect attempt. The mark you are awarded will depend on how many attempts you needed to get to the correct answer. These marks are for your own guidance and will not be used for any other purpose. Most questions have several variants so you can repeat the quiz, or individual questions, as many times as you want to if there is a particular area where you need more practice.
When you have finished the quiz and submitted your answers you will get an overall mark and some feedback giving advice on whether or not you are suitably prepared to start T366.
The format for entering mathematical answers can vary between questions, make sure you read the instructions carefully to see what is expected. Unless stated otherwise, you should use the notation described below. Note that you may sometimes get an error message while you are entering your answer, but this will disappear once you have entered the whole answer, provided your syntax is correct. Note that the input is casesensitive, so the variable ‘Y’ is different from the variable ‘y’.

Postgraduate Diagnostic and prep material

It is assumed that students taking up study of T868 will be familiar with the mathematics and chemistry covered in undergraduate science and engineering courses. To give an idea of the level of mathematics and chemistry assumed, the following questions have been compiled. You may like to attempt them before deciding to register for T868.
Please note that quiz feedback will be given once your attempt is fully submitted.
