Summary

 

Rock Engineering - CIVE97090

Aims

  • Engineering rock mechanics is the study of both rock mechanics and rock engineering, and is concerned with all structures that are built in or on rock. This includes structures formed from the rock itself, such as slopes and caverns, as well as engineering structures such as tunnels and foundations.
  • This module is an introduction to the subject, and aims to familiarise students with the principal concepts and techniques used in the discipline, whilst indicating more advanced issues. Through a series of weekly worksheets, students have the opportunity to apply the fundamentals presented in the lectures to typical engineering problems.

Role

Course Leader

Environmental Engineering - CIVE96012

Aims

This module aims to provide knowledge and skills in the design of drinking water supply and treatment works, wastewater collection and treatment systems, and waste and resource management. Understanding of the basic principles will be supplemented, where appropriate, by practical problem-solving exercises in the context of civil engineering.

 

 

Role

Lecturer

Waste Management Engineering - CIVE97015

Aims

To provide detailed knowledge and skills in the management, treatment, disposal and recycling options for solid wastes and the role resource efficiency plays in conserving resources and contributing to a low carbon economy, while focusing on key engineering and technical aspects involved. Understanding of the basic principles of waste and resource management will be supplemented, where appropriate, by practical problem-solving exercises in the context of civil engineering.

Role

Lecturer

Soils and Engineering Geology - CIVE95010

Aims

To give students a broad understanding both of basic soil and rock mechanics and the behaviour of soils and rocks needed for engineering design, and an understanding of their geological histories and the geological hazards associated with them.
