    Land and Construction Surveying

    This module introduces you to geospatial surveying practices, principles and procedures for civil engineering and construction projects. The module develops skills in using modern surveying instrumentation to enable 3-dimensional position of features to be determined and for the quality of those positions to be known. The processes for determining vertical height (level) as well as horizontal position (by measuring angles and distances) will be studied. On completion of this module, students will be able to carry out survey data collection using a range of equipment and will appreciate the role of the surveyor and the role of survey data for construction purposes.

    Ground Engineering

    Any construction project at any scale begins with groundworks. For the success of groundworks, Civil Engineers need to have a fair understanding of engineering geology (i.e. earth science for engineers), soil mechanics, rock mechanics, and materials used in transforming the natural ground to the engineered ground through reinforcement and/or stabilisation, so too the benefits and costs (technical and environmental) of groundwork solutions.

    This module is designed for you to gain a thorough understanding of engineering geology (earth processes, geological structures, ground hazards and engineering implications), soil mechanics (physical, hydraulic and mechanical properties), and soil as a construction material in form of compacted ground or reinforced compacted ground (i.e. accompanied with physical/chemical additives).

    This module builds on stability analysis topics of study that are embedded in the Level 4 Engineering Mechanics module. This module also builds on the Level 4 Engineering Materials; the emphasis here will be on materials in ground engineering discipline.

    Close

    Engineering Surveying

    This module develops your understanding and theoretical knowledge of applied techniques within engineering surveying. You will develop your ability to devise solutions to measurement problems and to evaluate the results and the systems performance in an engineering context. Students on this module will hence investigate and apply measurement techniques and systems in order to solve engineering surveying problems.

    This module includes a residential field scheme which takes place away from the university.

    Close

    Water Engineering

    The main aim of this module is to gain knowledge and analysis of various water engineering areas such as open channel hydraulics and basic coastal engineering.

  • Core Modules
    Close

    Capstone Project

    The main aim of this module is to equip you with the necessary skills to carry out and report research in order to consolidate the knowledge gained in other modules in a chosen field of study, combine it with the published knowledge of others, investigate it practically and report your findings.

    Close

    Structural Engineering

    Structural Engineering is at the heart of many construction, infrastructure and engineering projects in general. The module aims to enable you to expand the knowledge and understanding gained in analysis and design of structural elements in preceding years and to apply this knowledge to a conceptual structural design of a whole structure.

    Close

    Geotechnical Engineering

    Any construction project at any scale begins with groundworks. For the success of groundworks, Civil Engineers need to have a fair understanding of engineering geology, soil mechanics, rock mechanics and the application of these in design of Geotechnical Structures. 

    This module is designed for you to develop the ability to use the properties of soils in the analysis of geotechnical problems that require assessment of the stability and deformation of the ground and to develop an appreciation of how this knowledge can be integrated into conceptual and detailed geotechnical design of structures and earthworks.

    This module builds on the Level 5 Ground Engineering and Level 4 Engineering Mechanics modules.
