IE309 Operations ResearchMathematical modelling approach to managerial decision making; Linear programming; Sensitivity Analysis; Integer Programming; Transportation; Transhipment; Assignment; Network Flow Models; Multi-criteria Decision Making; Decision Analysis.
EC871 Economics IThe course introduces students to the fundamentals of supply and demand; the microeconomic theories of the role of the government in market allocations, firm behaviour and industrial organisation, and the functioning of the labour market; the macroeconomic topics of national income accounting, sources of short run economic fluctuations; and topics in open economy/international macroeconomics.
MG328 Human Resource ManagementHuman resource management (HRM) is about people and the organisation of work, the manner in which firms seek to manage and deploy their people in order to realise corporate strategies, and the day to day interactions between the firm and its people. The aims of this module are to:
CE334 Construction OperationsThis module provides details of the stages and operations involved in a construction project from a number of different perspectives: local authority, civil engineering consultant, civil engineering contractor and architect.
CE338 Project Planning and Organisation IIThis module builds on previous module(s) of building and organising project plans for execution of projects using commerical software.
CE346 Structural Engineering Design IThis module will focus on design of Concrete and Steel Structures by studying the following: Introduction to allowable stress design and limit states design philosophies. Overview of modern LSD steel and concrete codes, principally Eurocodes 2 and 3. Design simple steel structural members including ties, struts, beams, connections, truss roofing systems.Design one-way reinforced concrete spanning slabs, singly and doubly reinforced concrete beams, columns and pad foundations.
CE344 Transportation Systems and Infrastructure IThis module introduces the planning, design and operation of Transport systems and related infrastructure. An initial focus is placed on Highway and Traffic Engineering with topics including highway design and traffic engineering. The module also covers Environmental Impact Assessments for infrastructural projects. Emphasis is also placed on the sustainable design with an introduction to concepts including the embodied carbon and carbon footprint (with an emphasis transport infrastructure).
CE337 Introduction to GeomechanicsThis module provides an introduction to soil as an engineering material, and it includes some of the basic mechanics of soil behaviour. The context of soil behaviour is set by considering soil origin, mineralogy, phase relations, gradings and plasticity. The main mechanics components of the module are covered in six further sections: earthworks and compaction, effective stress, groundwater, permeability and seepage, 1-D consolidation, shear strength and lateral earth pressures.
ME222 Safety TechnologyPrimarily laboratory based in identifying hazards, controls and various levels of safety technology in the Engineering laboratories, research specifications for various personal protective equipment (hearing, eyes, breathing, feet, head, hands etc), awareness of hazards and PPE on other workplaces such as construction sites.
