Engineering: Civil and Environmental Engineering



This subject provides engineering students with the opportunity to develop the necessary computing knowledge, numerical techniques and programming skills to engage in engineering problem solving. The subject introduces students to basic knowledge and skills on computational numerical methods, Excel spreadsheet and Visual Basic programming with no assumed knowledge of programming. There are opportunities to apply acquired skills through the assessment of skills for civil and mechanical engineering problem solving. Examples are chosen from within the broader engineering context and serve to reinforce material covered in other subjects in civil and mechanical engineering.
