Modules

Teaching techniques include lectures, workshops, tutorials, laboratories, field trips and IT based blended learning. Visiting lecturers from industry contribute in some modules.

  • Advanced structural design
    The module will use the European codes for safe and effective design of normal structural elements and structural systems. It will cover engineering principles and analytical techniques and using software.
  • Soil-structure engineering
    This module will acquaint the students with classical and modern methods for the analysis and design of structures which are embedded in the ground, specifically embedded retaining walls, piled foundations and tunnels.
  • Finite elements and stress analysis
    The module will equip the student with linear elastic analysis of thin-walled sections, 2D and 3D stress analysis and transformations. It will introduce the Finite Element method theory and use ANSYS software.
  • Highway engineering and operation
    The module covers the system characteristics and operations for highways before considering geometric alignment and construction of highways.
  • Railway engineering and operation
    This module will underpin understanding of railway system characteristics and operations, and provide skills in geometric design for railways.
  • Water engineering
    This module covers the concepts and theories of groundwater hydrology, the principles of groundwater flow, well hydraulics analysis and design, contaminants transport in the aquifer, and remediation technology of contaminated groundwater. There is an introduction to aspects of 3-dimensional groundwater flows using USGS MODFLOW and FEFLOW with practical.
  • Project
    This module is one third of the course and is an individually supervised piece of work that is typically either a research project or an innovative design exercise. The theme is related to topics covered on the course.
