As Civil Engineers, it is essential to know different
analytical and numerical approaches to assess the performance of different
structure elements commonly found in structural engineering. This unit
gives students to learn various modelling structural behaviour used in practice
in the design and analysis of structures. Students will learn relevant topics
in structural engineering with the design and analysis of structure using STAAD
PRO software in Lab.
This unit develops students' ability to think independently and allow students to build upon and further develop and apply their creativity,skills and knowledge gained from prior studies. The students will utilize case studies of building design projects to look insight into the process by which architects work both individually and collaboratively to put disciplinary knowledge and expertise into practice. Cases will introduce a broad range of issues including design process, human factors, context, site, environment, culture, diversity, social justice, legal and regulatory issues, accessibility, technologies, materiality, sustainability, design disciplines, careers, and collaboration.
The aims of the design project are
·To demonstrate current understanding of terms, approaches that architects employ in designing the human environment
·To enable the student to work autonomously on a sustained piece of work appropriate to the programme being studied
·To develop student's ability to fully manage a project whilst synthesizing ideas or information to generate novel solutions
·To achieve a body of work or practice that is coherent and resolved.
Specific objectives of the project are
·To demonstrate an ability to select, critically evaluate and apply relevant areas scholarship to the design of an architectural design project.
·To enable the student to choose a project of interest from a predefined set generated by members of academic staff, or negotiate a suitable topic individually
·To be able to identify the possibility of new concepts within existing knowledge frameworks and approaches
·To enable the student to work within the set specification to satisfy the academic and/or industry requirements
·To enable the student to manage a sustained piece of work and monitor progress, while adhering to an overall academic timescale
·To allow the student to reflect on their performance in delivering a project on time and meeting the deadlines
·To enable the student to disseminate the results of their work to a wider audience, using appropriate academic and professional conventions
·To recognize how architectural design process affects or is affected by political, legal, social, cultural, economic and ethical dimensions
·To enable the student to conduct research into a specified area within the scope of study without digressing from agreed/self-set objectives.
This unit equips students with skills to be able to
identify the machine equipment, electric equipment, fire extinguishing system
and elevator facilities.It will cover water-supply (potable and other)
installation, hot water-supply installation, waste and vent system, waste
purification system, gas system, heating system, air conditioning equipment and
will examine electrical and mechanical systems of buildings and apply their
knowledge to the requirements of the case studies..
unit provides the student with principles of
architectural planning and history of architecture. It covers processes modular
construction in both residential and commercial buildings as well as retail,
educational, leisure, cultural, hotel and medical facilities. The architectural
planning of both residential buildings and commercial building will be explored
in detail. The students will also gain the knowledge of how towns and cities
have developed through the history and modern architecture contributes to the
sustainability and environment.
buildings, it is essential to develop background requirements and technical
discussions within a design team. This unit gives students insight and
background for the selection of appropriate equipment and materials, and their
integration in order to design an appropriate environment for different types
of buildings (e.g. office space, housing, commercial property). Students will
learn design development to cover user requirements in relation to
environmental control systems for both residential buildings and commercial
