Overview

This course is core for students enrolled in the BEng Hons (Civ), MEPR and MENS.
The course looks at engineering design in a broad sense. This requires consideration of human, societal and environmental issues to prompt a different understanding of the nature of engineering problems. New approaches to solving problems also requires consideration, with the emphasis on people and society being at least equal to that on technology.
This course requires students to apply knowledge, skills and competencies to demonstrate the integration of prior learning into an optimised engineering solution.

In this course students will work in groups, each group constituting an engineering design team.

The design teams will work on a multi-faceted design brief which describes client requirements and design objectives. The brief will require all students to draw on, use and integrate the skills, knowledge and competencies gained during their study programs.

Design teams will present optimised design outcomes to the client team and other design groups in a short presentation, and will submit a written design report to the client prior to presentation.

This course contains a mandatory residential school.
