Unit Code: CEB605

Unit Name: Civil Engineering Technology

Description: The construction sector is a major part of the civil engineering and building industries. Construction projects range in size from the small (such as the construction of a swimming pool or a subdivision cul de sac) to the very large (such as the construction of a hydroelectric power scheme, a freeway system or a mine). Typically, civil engineering projects require a good grasp of the interaction between machinery and materials. Also you will be able to select the right machine for the project. Engineers also need to manage competing demands of time, cost and quality. Civil engineers must, therefore, be familiar with construction equipment and techniques in common use, and must be able to plan and direct construction works efficiently. This course includes a minimum of two field visits where you will have the opportunity to witness theory in practice.
