Abstract: This paper investigates the dis-integrative effects of unitisation/modularisation on the so called integrative and application orientated topics of Engineering Applications, and suggests possible solutions to the identified problems. Within the main aims of increasing student choice, providing flexibility and enhancing credit accumulation and transfer, many Universities have unitised their courses. In addition most University engineering departments are accredited by the relevant professional body which requires courses to provide a specified minimum of hours to 'core' units which has resulted in an overall reduction in hours given over to units which provide for the applications of those core units thus providing for a Total Engineering education. To resolve this problem requires departments to discover new ways of implementing the ideas of Total Engineering in a Total Teaching way. The paper looks at ways of increasing different modes of teaching within a traditional Electronic Engineering degree course. It is suggested that within an educational world of diminishing staff resources directed study and open-access facilities must be fully utilised.
