During 2021 we will continue to support students who need to study remotely due to the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 and travel restrictions. Make sure you check the location code when selecting a unit outline or choosing your units of study in Sydney Student. Find out more about what these codes mean. Both remote and on-campus locations have the same learning activities and assessments, however teaching staff may vary. More information about face-to-face teaching and assessment arrangements for each unit will be provided on Canvas.

Unit of study_

CIVL4025: Engineering Project B

Engineering Project A and B provide an opportunity for students to undertake a major project in a specialised area relevant to civil engineering. Students will generally work in groups, although planning and writing of reports will be done individually; i. e. , a separate report must be submitted by each student. Only in exceptional circumstances and by approval of Engineering Project course coordinator and the relevant academic supervisor concerned will a student be permitted to undertake a project individually. Engineering Project is spread over a whole year, in two successive Units of Study of 6 credits points each, Engineering Project A (CIVL4024) and Engineering Project B (CIVL4025). This particular unit of study, which must be preceded by or be conducted concurrently with CIVL4024 Engineering Project A, should cover the second half of the required project work. In particular, it should include completion of all components planned but not undertaken or completed in CIVL4024 Engineering Project A.

  • LO2. evaluate critical research issues with originality, ingenuity and initiative
  • LO3. formulate an appropriate method for investigating a specific research question
  • LO4. document and report research work undertaken in a format appropriate for academic literature with correct referencing
  • LO5. communicate research outcomes to a broad audience (peers, academics, laypeople) in a clear, confident and engaging manner
  • LO6. reflect on the contribution of research to the discipline of engineering and to engineering practice
  • LO7. demonstrate in-depth knowledge of a specialised area within the discipline
  • LO8. analyse data, draw appropriate conclusions and present those conclusions in context, with due consideration of methods and assumptions involved.

Unit outlines

Unit outlines will be available 2 weeks before the first day of teaching for the relevant session.

There are no unit outlines available online for previous years.
