Module Overview
Completion of the progress requirements of Level HE1 & modules ENG2014, ENG2017, ENGM2070, & ENG2075
Module Aims

To integrate the Civil Engineering disciplines; to extend knowledge, through project work, in design, fluids, geotechnics, structures, construction, sustainability and health and safety; to develop skills in team work, resource investigation, communications and management.

Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of the module, students should be able to:
  • Identify solutions to planning and design problems.
  • Critically appraise alternative solutions.
  • Prepare drawings, calculations, specifications, and construction method statements – including health and safety risk assessments
  • Present work in written reports and visual presentations, and defend it orally.
  • Appreciate problems of time and resource constraints in constructional problems
Module Content

Week 1: Detailed design for a river diversion channel built into a soil slope.
Week 2: Conceptual design for a road realignment scheme.

Methods of Teaching/Learning

Self study with tutorial assistance from academic staff. Learning takes place through detailed project work and peer appraisal monitored by academic staff. All parts of the work are supervised and monitored by academic staff.

The module is run intensively over a two-week period after the Easter vacation (usually weeks 13 and 14 of the Semester). 2 hours of introductory lectures, 16 hours of “consultancy” sessions, 2hrs of peer design checking, 1 hour of presentation/oral exam, and 79 hours independent learning.

Total student learning time 100 hours.

Selected Texts/Journals

Required reading

Recommended background reading
Course notes and suggested reading related to the projects. It is expected that students will make extensive use of the University Library and the Internet; especially for the feasibility study. Use of the Institution of Civil Engineers Library in London is also encouraged.
