Further information on descriptions Description: Aims:
To develop skills in integration of civil/ structural engineering, environmental control and architectural objectives to produce creative and competent designs.

Learning Outcomes:
On successful completion of the unit, the student should be able to demonstrate an ability to work in an interdisciplinary design team, contributing engineering expertise, insights and creativity to the overall creative process.

Team working, drawing, analytical, and written and oral presentation skills. Ability to relate knowledge of regulations and real behaviour to the design of buildings.

Structural and Environmental Engineering Design linked with architecture studio. Structural issues should include the integration of architectural and environmental aspects in the complete conceptual design, the design to codes of practice of principal members, connection details and construction aspects, and the design of foundations. Environmental issues should include optimal use of daylight, solar heating, natural ventilation, noise from surroundings.
