A project-based course undertaken by all students not proceeding to the award of honours. Working in groups of four, students undertake a major multi-disciplinary design project. Each group works on a unique project supervised by a member of the academic staff. The aim of the project is to provide students with the opportunity to work on real-world problems and to develop their creative design skills. The design project will provide students with the opportunity to integrate the material learnt in the various sub-disciplines of civil or environmental engineering. The objective is to develop the students' design, teamwork, managerial and self-directed learning skills. This course also contains the assessment of the industrial training components of the degree for students not proceeding to the award of Honours. Students are required to complete a minimum of 60 working days of approved industrial training prior to the commencement of Stage 4, submit a report on this training before Week 4 of Session 1, Stage 4 and to present a seminar on their industrial training experiences at a specified time during Session 1.
