EG40G1: GEOTECHNICS 2 (2022-2023)

Last modified: 31 Jul 2023 11:19


Course Overview

The course is a variant of the existing EA40JE course, to be made available only to students on the Graduate Apprenticeship in BEng in Civil Engineering, and forms part of the Level 4 Honours Programme.  The variation covers the same Learning Outcomes, content and assessment as the existing EA40JE course, which is being taught in the same half session as this variant.  What changes is that the delivery model is a blended model, whatever the state of Covid Lockdown.
