- ENGR 1001 : Information Technology for Engineers - 3 Credits
- ENGR 3000 : The Technology of The Steelpan - 3 Credits
This course attempts to summarise and
present, in a formal fashion, current knowledge on various
technological aspects of the steelpan musical instrument. The
major technologies that impact on the instrument are acoustics,
mechanical vibrations, metallurgy, physical structure and signal
analysis. However, no special prerequisite knowledge is required
in any of these areas. The course starts off with an overview of the
very subjective area of the perception of music. This is essential
as it provides a reference point for later discussions. Other topics
include the manufacturing process, including a discussion on the
types of metallurgical properties required for different instrument
characteristics, the modal properties of the instrument and
the dynamics of the stick impact. The course ends with some
consideration of significant recent developments.
