Water Engineering Project
This course provides a practical introduction to investigation and design techniques in water engineering. The emphasis is on a realistic problem requiring investigation of several options in a multi-objective context and conceptual design. The problem is set by a practicing engineer.
- Semester 2 - 2017
On successful completion of the course students will be able to:
1. Develop basic investigation and conceptual design skills in a multi-objective, multi-option problem framework.
2. Apply research and design skills acquired in earlier courses to solve design problems.
3. Work as part of a design team.
4. Communicate and interact at a professional level.
Investigation of a range of water engineering options in a multi-objective context; hydrologic analysis; conceptual hydraulic/water resources design.
This course is only available to students enrolled in the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Civl) program and associated combined degrees. Pre-requisite - successful completion of CIVL4450
Content covered in course CIVL4450 Water Engineering.
