Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this subject, students should:
  • Fluently and critically apply engineering techniques, tools and resources;
  • Possess a comprehensive, theory based understanding of the underpinning natural and physical sciences and the engineering fundamentals applicable to the engineering discipline;
  • Have an in-depth mastery of, and capacity to reflectively critique and use, a specialist body of knowledge within the engineering discipline; and
  • Have completed Schedule C which includes those topics from one or more branches on the topic tree to be competent in an area of specialisation within civil engineering (i.e., structural engineer, a geotechnical engineer, etc.)
  • NOTE: Each individual topic on topic tree has an individual objective identifying the specfic knowledge to be acquired in that topic. The overall objective for the subject depend upon the aggregation of the objectives for the topics chosen by the student.
