Teaching

  • EG-120 Strength of Materials

    Introduction to the mechanics of materials. The module covers basic engineering concepts such as stress and strain and their relationships. It describes the way in which simple engineering components behave under the action of external forces or other actions such as thermal changes. The course serves as an introduction to more advanced modules on structural mechanics or stress analysis.

  • EG-121 Highway Design and Surveying

    This module introduces construction and geometric design of highways and practice in surveying. This module includes a field trip to be held in early June 2018.

  • EG-329 Hydrology and Unsteady Flow

    This module comprises two components: Hydrology (80%) and Water Engineering Design (20%) Hydrology: 1. Introduction of important concepts in hydrology, such as hydrological cycle, rainfall runoff process, hydrological design; 2. Ensuring students to be able to solve common hydrological problems following the general practice guideline in engineering hydrology; 3. Encouraging critical thinking on issues related to development issues, with special emphasis on water supply problems under the climate change impacts. Water Engineering Design:Storm water design calculations. Design of paved and roof drainage systems. Application of rational method hydrology open channel flow in urban drainage. Preliminary design calculations. British and Eurocode applications. Case studies and design of SuDs components

  • EGA216 Strength of Materials

    Introduction to the mechanics of materials. The module covers basic engineering concepts such as stress and strain and their relationships. It describes the way in which simple engineering components behave under the action of external forces or other actions such as thermal changes. The course serves as an introduction to more advanced modules on structural mechanics or stress analysis.

  • EGA304 Civil Engineering Design Practice II

    This module aims to develop skills in civil and structural engineering design through project-based learning. The coursework assignments are based on a real-life project from industry, which includes concept design and design elements such as superstructures, geotechnical, foundation and drainage. This aims to help students to apply their prior knowledge of different aspects of engineering design and develop design concepts which meet client/project brief, whilst paying due consideration to the necessary design parameters, health and safety and sustainability. This will also help students to further develop their design skills obtained from relevant modules in design practice.
