Summary

 

Ports and Maritime Transport - CIVE97131

Aims

  • Railways and their systems comprise many disciplines, such as planning, policies, management, and most branches of engineering. They are complex systems and it is often a challenge to have a broad view, not just considering relevant elements only. For those who are interested in and who wish to work in the industry it is important to have a broad view, seeing the railways as a whole system, whilst having a solid understanding of the complex system elements.
  • This module aims to provide students with an understanding of railway planning, management, engineering and operations, both in the UK and worldwide. The lectures will cover the core elements of 1) Governance, 2) Demand and Marketing, 3) Operation Planning, 4) Safety, and 5) Assets. Examples are drawn from the UK and London’s railway systems, as well as the world's urban metro and railway systems.

Role

Course Leader

Freight Transport - CIVE97129

Aims

  • The impact of recent trends in logistics and supply chain management on freight transport. 
  • Presentations on the strategic, tactical and operational levels of freight transport. 
  • Routing and scheduling methods used in tour and load planning. 
  • The developing field of mobile communication in freight transport. 
  • City logistics: the problems and solutions for freight transport in cities. 
  • The specialist fields of port logistics, construction logistics and hazardous material transport. 
  • Freight flow modelling techniques as used in national, regional and urban planning. 

Role

Course Leader

Transport Systems - CIVE96013

Aims

  • To cover the principles of transport systems design in the wider context of the civil engineering profession. The design and execution of large transport infrastructure projects is a multi-layered exercise, with this module aiming to provide an overview of the key stages involved.
  • To develop a good command of the concepts involved in traffic engineering, travel demand modelling, transport economics, environmental evaluation, logistics and supply chain management.

 

Role

Course Leader

Transport and its Context - CIVE97116

Aims

  • To introduce students to the fundamentals of the transport system and the context in which it operates, forming the foundation and basis for the rest of the transport MSc courses.

Role

Lecturer

Mathematics I - CIVE40003

Aims

This module introduces mathematics as a logical and structured discipline, focussing on providing the mathematical knowledge and skills required for their First Year Civil Engineering programme.  
 
It provides a basis for the more advanced mathematical techniques which are required in subsequent years of the programme, with an emphasis on application of mathematics to the solution of engineering problems. 

Role

Lecturer

Operational Research and Systems Analysis - CIVE97004

Aims


To introduce the students to some of the operational research methods that are used in the systems approach to Engineering and Management, so as to provide them with the requisite tools for the mathematical representation of decision-making problems, in particular emphasising the roles of uncertainty and risk.
