  • Subject notes


    The delivery of this subject is based on lectures which are fully integrated with weekly workshops and a series of assignments allocated throughout the semester. Problem-based learning is a key feature aiming to enrich students’ appreciation of the subject contents and their engineering relevance and practical applications. A hands-on exercise is conducted in a laboratory environment to quantify various constituents of soil and classify them with hydrological and engineering implications. The subject also allows students to develop their teamwork skills by collaborating on group assignments.


    This subject does not require students to purchase any particular prescribed textbooks but learning material is provided online via a series of relevant web links and downloadable documents, including an online text.


    Practical context and industry links are provided in the problem-based learning exercises.
