You must either have successfully completed the following subject(s) before starting this subject, or currently be enrolled in the following subject(s) in a prior study period; or enrol in the following subject(s) to study prior to this subject:
Please note that your enrolment in this subject is conditional on successful completion of these prerequisite subject(s). If you study the prerequisite subject(s) in the study period immediately prior to studying this subject, your result for the prerequisite subject(s) will not be finalised prior to the close of enrolment. In this situation, should you not complete your prerequisite subject(s) successfully you should not continue with your enrolment in this subject. If you are currently enrolled in the prerequisite subject(s) and believe you may not complete these all successfully, it is your responsibility to reschedule your study of this subject to give you time to re-attempt the prerequisite subject(s)
No additional requirements
In previous subjects you have learned about the components making up the structure of a track in the rail corridor, as well as learning about the broad range of other infrastructure within the corridor for which the civil engineer would be responsible. Everything within the corridor had to be built and needs to be maintained, and design of infrastructure is pointless without its eventual construction. This subject is built around a comprehensive and multi-faceted case study in which you will work on interdependent construction projects within an overarching infrastructure development scenario. You will work in a team of colleagues within this subject, because the amount of work involved in each project requires a team effort, but also because all infrastructure construction in the rail industry requires teams drawn from many disciplines. Interaction and collaboration of the teams in this subject is an essential part of the learning and of the assessment. Your participation in and contribution to your team and its project and responsibilities will be closely assessed and will be considered in setting the final grade in this subject.
