Robotics Systems Modules

Year 1

Project 1

RSE1101

This module is the first of a two-part robot construction project that spans two modules: RSE1101 Project 1 and RSE1102 Project 2. The focus of the project is on the development of basic robot construction capabilities for the creation of a basic robotic system to fulfil a mission. Classes are conducted for basic capability development and workshops are conducted for basic robot construction.


C Programming

RSE1201

This module focuses on the fundamentals of programming that includes control-flows (such as statement grouping, decision making, case selection, procedure iteration, and termination test) and basic data types (such as arrays, structures, and pointers). Additionally, there is an intensive discussion of the lexical, syntax notation, and semantics of the C programming language.


Engineering Mathematics

RSE1901

The this module starts with the fundamentals of differential and integral calculus and progresses to  differential and integral calculus, including multivariate calculus.


Critical Thinking and Communicating

UCS1001

Critical Thinking and Communicating is a 4CR, 12-week, 48-hour module that aims to equip students with critical thinking skills to read and comprehend scientific texts, specific to their degree programmes, as well as foundational knowledge and skills in writing and presentation for academic success. It will incorporate critical thinking in a range of skill-based topics such reader-response writing, lab reports, design reports or proposals, writing literature reviews and delivering oral and poster presentations to choose from so that students may see the immediate relevance and applicability of the knowledge acquired. Students will be assessed through a total of 4 Continual Assessments (CAs) that will include group-based, take-home assignments as well as individual, in-class assignments. The module will also incorporate a class participation grade.


Digital Competency Essentials

UDC1001

This module focuses on equipping the students with essential digital skills incorporating all the MOE Digital Competency baseline requirements.The module consists of stackable asynchronous micro-learning e-modules. The topics covered include digital and data literacy, digital safety, ethics, data management, digital learning, and fundamental technical skills.Students’ progress and learning outcomes are assessed through online assessments such as quizzes and through practical exercises and assignment (where applicable). DiCE is a mandatory 2-credit module required to be completed by all SIT undergraduates enrolled in SIT-conferred or SIT-joint degree programmes and must be completed 6 trimesters upon matriculation into SIT. Students can plan their learning path on completing the stackable asynchronous micro-learning modules within one trimester or across six trimesters.


Integrated Work Study Programme (Career Skills)

RSE3601A

The Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP) is an integral and compulsory applied learning component, which provides students with the opportunity to integrate what they have learnt in the classroom with what is practised in the real world, and vice versa. It comprises two integrative parts: i) work and ii) study. The work component refers to a work attachment that students undergo in various organisations, whereas the study component refers to the integration of knowledge and practice, as well as the development and the application of innovation skills. The study component also includes the ongoing development of career skills. The IWSP is a key learning platform that contributes to the inculcation of the SIT-DNA in every student.

The IWSP consists of 2 parts:
1)    IWSP (Career Skills)
2)    IWSP (Work Attachment)
IWSP (Career Skills) is a prerequisite requirement for IWSP (Work Attachment). Students must complete and pass IWSP (Career Skills) before they are allowed to embark on IWSP application for the work attachment.

IWSP (Career Skills)
Students are required to complete a set of five blended “Career Readiness Micro-Modules”. They serve to impart complementary skills to prepare students in navigating the IWSP application and the workplace - to have a growth mindset and be self-directed in their career development. The micro-modules include: Zoom workshops, e-learning materials and assessment tasks that students are required to complete. 


Project 2

RSE1102

This module is the second of a two-part robot construction project that spans two modules: RSE1101 Project 1 and RSE1102 Project 2. The focus of the project is on the development of basic robot construction capabilities for the creation of a basic robotic system to fulfil a mission. Classes are conducted for basic capability development and workshops are conducted for basic robot construction.


C++ Programming

RSE1202

This module looks at the C++ language with particular emphasis on its object-oriented features. Topics include stylistic and usage differences between C and C++, namespaces, function and operator overloading, classes, inheritance, templates, and fundamental STL concepts.


Physics

RSE1401

This module looks at the analysis of structures in static equilibrium and consider the influence of materials in affecting the mechanical behaviour of solids. The dynamic behaviors of structures are also considered. Concepts involving Kinematics, Newtonian Mechanics, Work and Energy, Momentum and Impulse, Rotational Motion and the Universal Law of Gravitation are covered.


Systems Engineering

RSE1801

This module looks at the engineering of man-made systems through the systems approach. Fundamental principles and concepts for developing engineered systems are covered for general systems as well as for software-intensive systems.
