Module overview

This module follows on from CENV1026 Design and Computing for Civil Engineers where students are set a series of design challenges, ranging in complexity, concept and scale. In CENV2028 students are set an engineering brief to design a full scale structure based on real client and site requirements.

Students work within a group, within a proactive and competitive environment to practically apply their knowledge to develop a design that balances innovation, practicality, the client’s requirements, economy, sustainability and buildability. They will further improve their time management skills by working to tight deadlines, and communication skills through the preparation of drawings, models, reports, and design calculations. A final presentation to design tutors, fellow students and external critics from industry will demonstrate the design proposal in its entirety.

Particular focus is placed upon the ability to work as an effective team and realise a coordinated and well resolved engineering system.
