Description of module content:

The group project will integrate the subjects studied throughout the course. Typical projects may involve transportation studies, structural design, foundation selection and design, construction management, water engineering, whilst addressing planning and environmental issues. The design aspects will be more conceptual in nature than detailed. The students will be required to work co-operatively in their groups and each will be responsible to the group for a particular field of study, which will develop research, analysis and presentation skills. The group will aim towards producing a final report, supported by a formal presentation. Throughout the project, the student will be encouraged to keep a record of their work, and each group will be directed by a tutor.
