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 May 2017.

  • EG-325 Ground and Water Engineering Design

    Site investigation of geotechnical problems, stages of investigation, site reconnaissance, choice of methods of exploration, standard and cone penetration tests (SPT, CPT), design of shallow foundations and piles based on SPT, settlement of pile foundations, computing consolidation settlement, ground improvement techniques, Open Channel Flow. Design of drainage systems, Hydrologic principles, sustainability in water drainage design (SUDS).

  • 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 first four coursework assignments is a group project with four design elements including superstructure, geotechnical, foundation and drainage design. This aims to help students to apply prior design knowledge from relevant modules in design practice. The last coursework assignment is a group conceptual design exercise based on real-life projects from industry. This aims to help students utilise prior knowledge of different aspects of engineering design to develop design concepts which meets client/project brief, whilst paying due consideration to the necessary design parameters.
