An important part of this course is the practical work in engineering design. Students will be required to carry out one or two major design projects involving the application

of studies undertaken elsewhere in the course.

out the course.


One 3-hour paper for Pass and Final Ilonours.

Work done during the year on design projects will be given due weight in assessing the standard of all candidates.



A course

of z

lectures and about 40 hours' drawing office work.


Analysis of determinate and simple indeterminate structures. Structural properties of steel, concrete and timber. Codes of practice. Design of beams, slabs, columns and connections.


Students are required to prepare and submit during the year original designs based on the lecture course. Work submitted will be assessed as part of the Annual Examination.
