Innovation in Civil Engineering - CI9-B5
This module provides a set of theories, examples and tools to help you make sense of innovation in civil engineering and the associated changes in the behaviours in the production and operation of infrastructure. The industry is being transformed by new digital technologies, advanced manufacturing approaches, and new approaches to sustainability and use of resources. The module aims to provide some introductory hands-on experience of building information modelling, to show how technological choices are important and consequential and to inform your decision-making about new technologies as civil engineers.
Business and Project Management - CI2-282
This module builds on the foundations set in the first year by further exploring the business environment in which civil engineering projects take place. It is part of the design thread through the MEng programme. The CI2-282 module introduces the concept of risk management and the different types of risks inherent in the civil engineering industry. It also gives an overview of the organizations involved in the supply chain and the principles of project management and procurement, including ways to improve performance, worker safety and the environmental impact.
