    Soil Structure Engineering

    This module introduces the application of geotechnical engineering design approaches and in particular the concepts of soil/structure interaction to the design, construction and maintenance of deep foundations, excavations and flexible earth retaining structures.

    Environmental Impact Assessment

    This is a heavily research-informed, problem-centred, module with insights from industrialists. It explores the process of evaluating the potential effects of construction on the environment - known worldwide as Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). The module has two principal themes. The rationale of EIA, and its legal and planning framework is first introduced. The module then introduces the potential impacts and matters than need to be taken into account as part of EIA, how these can be captured, assessed and monitored to minimize the unwelcomed environmental ramifications. Practical case studies and examples will be used here, including but not limited to deep basements, development on challenging grounds like peatlands and reclaimed lands. You are expected to gain insight into possible environmental limitations and risks, management, decision-making, and monitoring.

    The emphasis will be on EIA procedures in the UK, and how this exercise brings together different disciplines and stakeholders. On completing this module, you should be able to identify the need for EIA in construction projects, and that should EIA is needed, how the assessment can be planned and implemented, what soft and hard tools are available to conduct such an assessment, and how potential impacts of construction can be predicted, prevented, corrected and monitored. You should demonstrate your ability in underpinning your ideas with good reasoning, in a critical and professional manner.

    Optional Modules

    Advanced Structural Analysis

    The module aims to o provide advanced skills for the analysis of structures (such as buildings, roofs and bridges) as well as an opportunity to practice using current computing tools to perform such structural analysis. The module is very hands on and develops the students engineering judgement and equip them with necessary skills to be able to devise sensible modelling strategies and make sound decisions.

    Close

    Highway and Railway Engineering

    This module will provide you with the knowledge that will enable you to become competent in highway and railway engineering. You will gain the skills and appreciations of requirements, methods and techniques for designing and maintaining highway and railway pavement systems. The module will cover the impact of the roadway environment and the physical infrastructures assets like bridges, drains, etc.

    Close

    Design in Steel and Concrete

    Structural design is a vital step in many construction, infrastructure and engineering projects in general. The module aims to provide advanced current design practice and assessment techniques as used in a modern design office; knowledge of recent research and the philosophy behind the relevant Codes of Practice and British Standards.

    Close

    Structural Stability and Dynamics

    The module aims to provide you with a systematic understanding of advanced knowledge of structural stability and dynamics of structures; to enable you to critically appraise and apply current structural stability and dynamics analysis methods.

    Close

    Circular Economy and Sustainability

    The ill-informed use and management of construction materials continues to be a global problem and there is a requirement to rationalise the choice and use of materials towards more circular economies where materials and waste remain within the economy cycle for as long as possible. Engineers need to understand the opportunities available to minimise, recycle or recuse the construction waste to minimise the carbon footprint.

    This module has an emphasis on resources consumption and an understanding of circular economy thinking towards a more sustainable society. You will learn to conduct life cycle assessment, life cycle management and related environmental systems analysis approaches, and to make informed decisions about materials and construction methods using life cycle analysis.

    Close

    Environmental Sustainable Engineering & Logistics

    The module provides a holistic approach to deliver sustainable construction projects. The module focuses on sustainable development and sustainable construction. The module will enable you to explore and develop your understanding of the construction industry, and its environmental challenges and opportunities. You will learn about the industry's output, scope and constraints. Integrated process of design, operation and management will be the core of this module. The module considers management of health and safety within the built environment including relevant regulations and management systems.

    Close

    Innovation, Sustainability and Transition in the Oil and Gas Sector

    The module will introduce you to theoretical and empirical framework to analyse evolving nature of oil and gas sector. In particular, it focuses on transformational change presented by innovation, sustainability and transition of strategies, policies and processes in the oil and gas sector. Drawing on the conceptual underpinning the module provides a petroleum (oil and gas) sector-specific overview introducing students to major themes and debates.

    Close

    Intelligent Transport Systems

    This module aims to provide an introduction to the key concepts of transportation policy, transportation modelling and safety, along with an understanding of the technological and legal aspects of transportation as well as an awareness of environmental issues. The objective is to provide you with the knowledge that will enable you to become competent practitioners in transport systems and transport infrastructure areas.
