Course Description & Objectives: 

This course is a continuation of the first semester course, but at the first three stages of a project. The students are now familiar with the project types. They have now to recognise the field data needed by the Civil Engineer for the feasibility study, the preliminary design and the final design.Students are encouraged to read up on what interests them in Civil Engineering topics.The Engineer  gives his/her  view in class, the Surveyor  shows examples  in the field, and then the students must observe and explore for themselves.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Objectives:

  •  The purpose of this course is to explain by the Civil Engineer what common field data he/she needs at these stages of projects
  • To draw from the student what common field data would be needed by the Civil Engineer
  •       To give the student the opportunity of verifying his/her data list on visits to sites
  •      It trains in greater discernment of field data and site identification
Learning Outcomes: 

On completion of the course, the student will:

  •    Have gained from the experience of a practicing Engineer regarding the field data needs of the Engineer  during  feasibility  study,  preliminary  design  and  detailed  design,  and  where  the Surveyor fits into the process
  •       Have experienced the field reality of data recognition at these three stages of a project under the guidance of an experienced Surveyor.           .
  • Have increased their powers of observation for engineering data.
