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 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.)
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.
Istanbul is a unique case with its fragmented and complex layers in regard to its culture, architecture and geography. Working within the sensitive historic contexts of Istanbul requires far more than the specialist skills of an architect, conservator and/or city planner. In this regard, the course Building Istanbul Then and Now aims to create a comprehensive understanding of architectural culture of Istanbul in the last two centuries.
In this course in Art and Design we will be exploring the intersection between art and architecture in the city and branding cities through art and design. The course will combine lectures, excursions, slideshows and discussions on topics related to urban space, public art and branding cities. This process is accompanied by showing information about the symbiosis of art and architecture in the cities like Berlin, Graz, Beijing and Auckland.
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.
INNES multidisciplinary sessions aim at stimulating intellectual and personal development in an open and diverse environment. You will experience the exciting combination of a high-quality academic education and a wide range of cultural and social activities. Our short term sessions are offered by lecturers coming from prominent universities.
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.
