Civil Engineering is a branch of Engineering that deals with the design and construction of the artefacts of civil use: civil and industrial constructions, transportation infrastructure, bridges and tunnels, hidro-technical utilities such as dams, aqueducts and sewage systems, structures in seismical areas and others. The prerequisites for studying civil engineering include mathematics, physics, project management and design among others. The students can specialize in a variety of sub-topics like: Construction Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Water Resource Engineering, Earthquake Engineering Costal Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Materials Engineering or Urban Engineering.
Architecture is both the science and the art of designing and erecting buildings and building complexes according to certain proportions and rules dependent on the function, character and designation of the building. The science is relevant through the technical and functional resolution of an architectural project while the art is the special component of creating nonfigurative plastic images of abstract essence. Architecture is the most comprehensive form or spatial organization that aims at fulfilling the complex functions in a balanced, harmonious and esthetical manner.
For the realization of a building/construction/edifice both architects and civil engineers work together usually on well-defined projects starting with the design phase, then costs and resources estimation and finally implementation, which includes detailed structural calculations.
The BTEC Level 3 Certificate in Construction and the Built Environment (QCF) is recognised across the construction industry as an ideal start for those wishing to progress towards supervisory or technician roles, or professional qualifications.
This key introductory OU level 1 module examines the range of human activity that is ’engineering‘, from design concepts to the manufacture of products. It introduces the context in which engineers operate – addressing such areas as product safety standards and patent law – as well as looking at current engineering practice.
This course is a compulsory module of the Open University’s Master of Engineering and postgraduate Diploma in Engineering programmes if you haven’t successfully completed Key skills for professional engineers (T397) as part of your undergraduate studies.
Equivalent to the first year of a degree, for entry into Engineering degrees at Queen's University Belfast. The International Diploma combines academic study, intensive English language teaching and study skills to prepare you for direct entry into the second year of a university degree.
Le but de ce cours de base en géomatique est de présenter un aperçu des méthodes d'acquisition, de modélisation et de représentation des données à référence spatiale. Les ingénieurs civils et en environnement devront comprendre le rôle et les enjeux de la géomatique face aux disciplines de la construction, de l'aménagement et de l'environnement.
L'art des structures propose une découverte du fonctionnement des structures porteuses, telles que les bâtiments, les toitures ou les ponts. Ce cours présente les principes du dimensionnement et les structures en câbles et en arcs. Un deuxième cours présentera les structures en treillis, en poutres et en cadres.
Ce cours est une première introduction à la mécanique des fluides. Nous allons aborder tout d'abord les propriétés physiques des fluides : les états de la matière et la notion de viscosité.
To acquire systematic knowledge of construction management. Acquire the abilities to develop construction enterprise, project and process management models by evaluating structural changes of national and international construction markets.
The course will address basic principles of stormwater management approaches in urban areas, such as Low Impact Development (LID), Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS), Sustainable Urban Drainage Schemes (SUDS), Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD), etc. The course focus will be on low-rise high density housing (LRHD) area opportunities and limitations for stormwater management approaches implementation.
The program deals with three aspects of creativity: 1.) Creativity in individuals - psychological view: Influence of intelligence and personality on creativity – Definition of creativity, methods to unfold creativity 2.) Creativity in teams: Team performance; Intercultural and interdisciplinary aspects of teams – Idea generation in teams, creativity techniques in teams 3.)
Natural hazards are a constantly recurring threat in many countries. Although they can hardly be prevented, their destructive effects on human settlements can be essentially mitigated through constant monitoring, appropriate planning strategies and technical measures. The course aims at demonstrating the possibilities as well as limits of human control and will give an exemplary overview of potential countermeasures before, during and after the occurrence of a disaster in the fields of earthquake, fire, flood, tsunami and nuclear hazards.
You will be introduced to a new school of thought under Austrian architects and researchers under weekly changing focus on • Social and Cultural Specifics in Viennese Architecture 1850-1950 • Sustainable Architectural Design Made in Austria • Building in a Historical Context within Austria • Theoretical lectures and innovative presentations • Excursions to historical buildings and current building sites • Visits to architectural offices, companies and research institutions • Weekly public evening lectures by internationally acclaimed experts.
