Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

Reinforced concrete is a key structural material for the construction industry. The paper will teach students methods for designing reinforced concrete elements and structures to meet New Zealand Standards

The learning outcomes for this paper are linked to Washington Accord graduate attributes WA1-WA11. Explanation of the graduate attributes can be found at: https://www.ieagreements.org/

Taught through lectures, workshops and laboratory classes.

Covid-19: Note face to face activities are subject to change depending on Covid-19 restrictions. Under the current red traffic light requirements face-to- face teaching activities may take place with appropriate social distancing and mask usage. Please check the Moodle page regularly for any updates.

Lectures: Three 1 - hour lectures per week. These will be recorded on Panopto and be available after the live session. Copies of lecture slides will be available in advance of each session

Workshops: One 2 - hour session per week (divided in two streams) on Mondays (9AM to 11AM and 12PM to 2PM). Students will work in groups of up to five and should sign up to one workshop session. The work is individual so no groups will be assigned however students are encouraged to work in groups.

Tutorials: One 1 - hour tutorial per week (divided into two streams). These will be Q&A sessions to address any issues with the assignments. These will also be recorded on Panopto and will be available after the live session.

Laboratories: Students will be placed in groups of seven or eight and must attend one 3 - hour laboratory. N.B. The day following the lab session students will need to return to the lab to remove specimens from moulds and complete any remaining clean up of the lab space.

Important Note for International Students: For international students in New Zealand under student visas, regular attendance is part of your visa obligation and is checked as a requirement on the University under the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students, to which the University is a signatory. Academic staff are formally required to monitor attendance in classes and submission of compulsory assessment events/items and to report to Waikato International in the event that any problem with irregular attendance or non-submission is not resolved.

Assessment

Edit Assessments Content

Workshops will be used to develop material for the assignments. Students are encouraged to work in groups during the workshop sessions however each student must make their own individual submissions

Samples of your work may be required as part of the Engineering New Zealand accreditation process for BE(Hons) degrees. Any samples taken will have the student name and ID redacted. If you do not want samples of your work collected then please email the engineering administrator, Natalie Shaw (natalie.shaw@waikato.ac.nz), to opt out.
