Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering – B.Eng

Qualification: B.Eng (Bachelor of Engineering)

Duration: 4 years (2 years at Mahanakorn University of Technology and 2 years at The University of Sheffield)

Program description:

If you’re not sure which area of civil engineering you want to go into, this broad-based course is a good choice. The structure of the three-year BEng is the same as the MEng Civil Engineering for the first two years. but without the extra year of more advanced work.

You’ll be involved with the integrated design group project, investigating new methods and materials to design an entire eco-town or urban regeneration site, but will focus much more on individual project work.

The University of Sheffield

  1. Integrated Design Project II (Individual Design Project)
    Civil Engineering is about creating, improving and protecting our environment (ICE 2010).

    Engineering leaders in the 21st Century need to understand and integrate a wide variety of issues to develop, evaluate and justify appropriate solutions to complex problems.

    This module, which forms the individual design element of an integrated design project, is intended to enable students to gain practical experience of undertaking a non-routine design with an investigative aspect, and to develop skills in investigating, managing and evaluating information justifying decisions and presenting solutions.

    The project will involve individual student-led investigations and design of an aspect of the overall project.
  2. Integrated Design Project 1
    Civil Engineering is about creating, improving and protecting our environment (ICE 2010).

    Engineering leaders in the 21st Century need to understand and integrate a wide variety of issues to develop creative solutions to complex problems.

    This module, which forms the first stage of an integrated design project, aims to develop skills in multi-disciplinary group working and ability to explore and integrate a wide range of issues to develop holistic solutions to complex design problems.

    The project will involve student-led investigations and management as well as specialist teaching on elements of design, creativity, sustainability, management, economics, ethical and social issues.
  3. Advanced Structural Analysis
    This module will enable students to analyse continuous systems with various mechanical behaviours, develop and apply the necessary mathematical tools to quantify such behaviours and advanced stress analysis, equivalent stress measures and structural strength analysis
  4. Civil Engineering Hydraulics Design
    This module is aimed at providing students with the knowledge and skills required to design a range of structures whose function is to control and manage water. A number of different types of hydraulic structures will be examined during the module.

    Emphasis will be placed on the application of practical design methods. Students’ learning will be assessed by formal examination at the end of the module.
  5. Finance and Law for Engineers
    The module is designed to introduce engineering students to some of the key financial and legal issues that engineers are likely to encounter in their working environment.

    The module will draw directly on practical issues of budgeting, raising finance, assessing financial risks and making financial decisions in the context of engineering projects and/or product development.

    At the same time the module will develop students¿ understanding of the legal aspects of entering into contracts for the development and delivery of engineering projects and products and an awareness of environmental regulation, data protection and intellectual property rights.

    Through a series of parallel running lectures in the two disciplines, the module will provide a working knowledge of the two areas and how they impinge on engineering practice.

    There will be a heavy emphasis on group working, report writing and presentation as part of the assessment supplemented by online exercises and an individual portfolio.
  6. Geotechnical Design
    The primary aims of the module are to examine (i) the influence of geology on geotechnical design and (ii) the principles underlying modern geotechnical design codes.

    The topics covered include consideration of geological structures and processes in rocks and the interpretation of geological maps as they apply in engineering work.

    The module will build on material covered in earlier Geotechnical Engineering modules.

    As such, design and construction issues relating to shallow foundations, retaining walls and earthworks are further extended.

    In addition to the lectures, the module includes project/practical work and tutorials.
  7. Integrated Design Project III
    Civil Engineering is about creating, improving and protecting our environment (ICE 2010).

    Engineering leaders in the 21st Century need to understand and integrate a wide variety of issues to develop creative solutions to complex problems.

    This module, which forms the final stage of an integrated design project, aims to practise skills in multi-disciplinary group working and ability to manage and integrate multi-stranded project information.

    Recasting the design in an international context will provide opportunity to develop awareness of cultural, climatic, ethical and professional issues etc that impact on implementation of civil engineering projects in different parts of the world.
  8. Multi-Storey Building Design
    This module will enable students to learn about the design of multi-storey buildings through a mix of project work and lecture presentations. Project briefs will be broader than those previously encountered and will enable students to design creatively.

    The module deals with the fundamental principles governing the structural performance and practical applications of a range of structural systems.

    Design exercises are based on basic hand calculations and place emphasis on decision making in the conceptual design process. The syllabus will cover multi-storey buildings in reinforced concrete and composite steel/concrete.
  9. Urban Drainage Engineering
    To enable students to gain a basic understanding of the fundamental concepts and processes associated with urban drainage and to apply these concepts to a variety of engineering problems.
