UG Coursework Unit
Faculty & College
To be successful in this unit students require a sound knowledge of applied mechanics, mechanics of materials, higher level structural analysis skills and the behaviour of steel as a civil engineering material.
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
design structural elements and entire structures to meet stipulated function and performance objectives
use relevant Australian Standards and codes of practice to analyse and design structures
demonstrate an understanding of the behaviour of steel as a structural material
design connections and structural steel members in tension, compression, bending and combined actions.
