Advanced mapping and animation (ENGS2006)Introduction
A classroom based course split into Part I and Part II. This course replaces the City and Guilds Forensic Collision Investigation Course withdrawn by City and Guilds from 2013. This course can also be studied mainly by distance learning, for details click here.
What you will studyThe course starts by revisiting the maths and physics necessary to understand the discipline before applying these principles to the techniques used in collision reconstruction. This is reinforced during practical sessions when students put these techniques into practice.
This course assumes that you hold a GCSE in mathematics and have studied some basic physics.
If you are a confident learner but feel you need to revisit your maths, you can download Module 1 (maths) here. Module 1 comprises five weeks distance learning. For less confident learners we run a one week classroom based maths primer periodically throughout the year. The maths primer course does not have a credit level. Module 2 (physics) is also available for download here.
Classroom based with work based learning between the Part I and Part II course.
