Unit sets
These unit sets have been designed such that introductory          ENB101     Engineering Mechanics 1
units have no prerequisites. Later units in each set may           ENB102     Engineering Mechanics 2
have earlier units as prerequisites.                               ENB273     Civil Materials

sources. It includes the following: waste minimisation;            and graphs, partial derivatives. Hyperbolic functions: inverse

waste as a resource; reducing the mass, volume and                 first and second order ODE's, Laplace transform methods,
toxicity of the waste; disposing of waste in a socially and        Fourier series. Multiple integrals: areas and volumes.

UDB214 PROFESSIONAL STUDIES 2
Assignment-based project orientated group work where you
design and document a commercial development from a
project management perspective considering
constructability drawing on your skills in estimating;
planning; scheduling; site organisation; environmental
planning & sustainable urban development. Focus on
special construction techniques; reuse of buildings and
building materials; durability of materials, minimisation and
disposal of construction waste; construction practice;
planning and use of appropriate forms of construction for
various building sizes and types; community negotiations;
statutory responsibilities including access for people with a
disability .

UDB312 CONTRACT ADMINISTRATION
The administration of construction contracts represents one
of the core applications for both construction managers and
quantity surveyors. In order to appreciate some of the
commercial implications of contract administration you will
study administrative implications for both parties to the
contract.

UDB313 PROGRAMMING AND SCHEDULING
This unit covers the following: Project time and resource
planning techniques such as bar charts, critical path
networks (precedence, time scales, and activity on arrows);
Line of balance; Resource allocation and levelling; Schedule
updates and progress control; Delays and claims analysis.
Applications of computer-based project planning software
will form an important part of the study in this unit.
