1 COURSE DESCRIPTION DIPLOMA IN CIVIL ENGINEERING ECM107 INTRODUCTION TO CIVIL ENGINEERING This course introduces the students to the developments of civil engineering in terms of their historical and future perspectives highlighting the achievements of civil engineers both local and overseas. The focus is then shifted to the personal traits of the achievers and elevate the students aptitudes, attitudes, critical, creative and innovative thinking. The final assessment will be the successful completion of a group project dealing with innovative and functional physical models. ECM106 CIVIL ENGINEERING DRAWING This course covers three aspects of engineering drawing, technical drawing, structural drawing and civil engineering drawing. Students are also taught how to read architectural drawing. The use of CAD software for drafting is taught along side the manual drafting approach. ECG103 GEOLOGY This course deals with the the basic aspects of physical geology, structural geology and engineering geology for civil engineering works. Principles of engineering geology will be emphasized in areas of applied geology. ECG203 BASIC SOIL MECHANICS This course deals with the principles of soil mechanics. It covers topics on physical properties and classification of soil, vertical stresses, shear strength, flow of water through soil and soil compaction. ECS208 BASIC SOLID MECHANICS Concept of stress, strains in relation to one-dimensional and two-dimensional element, torsion of circular section, shear forces, bending moment and deflection in beam, shear stress in beam.

2 ECM206 ENGINEERING MATERIALS This course covers four main engineering materials i.e. cementious, metallic, organic and inorganic materials. They are studied with reference to their composition, properties, modification of some of their properties with respect to environmental effects and their behavior at service. ECG213 SOIL ENGINEERING This course deals with the application of basic soil mechanics principles to civil engineering works. It covers topics on lateral earth pressure, bearing capacity of soils, soil consolidation and settlement, slope stability and sub surface soil exploration. ECS218 STRUCTURES AND MATERIALS LABORATORY The structures and materials laboratory introduces the testing procedures for basic civil engineering materials and mechanics of structures such as tensile and torsion tests. Experiments on arch, suspended cables, deformation of pin jointed structures and influence line for simply supported beams are carried out as well. The course also covers the experimental testing of cement, aggregate and fresh and hardened concrete. ECW201 HYDRAULICS AND WATER QUALITY LABORATORY This course reinforces concepts introduces in basic fluid mechanis, hydraulics and wastewater. Students are required to conduct experiment, analyze and interpret data and prepare laboratory reports. ECM216 BUILDING SERVICES This course introduces building services as a multi-disciplinary subject. It covers topics on electrical, mechanical and utilities. ECM226 BUILDING SERVICES LABORATORY This course provides exposure to students on the basic knowledge and understanding of the principles in electrical, mechanical and utilities.

3 ECS228 MECHANICS OF STRUCTURES Introduction to types, forms, internal forces and joint of statically determinate structure, three hinged arches, portal frame and suspension cable and an introduction to column stability. Introduction to influence lines concept for statically determinate beams. ECW211 BASIC FLUID MECHANICS This course introduces students to the concept of fluid mechanics, including various properties of fluid such as density, viscosity and pressure. Methods to measure some of these properties are discussed and the concepts of floatation and stability are also introduced. The course will also cover fluids under static condition and concepts on continuity, momentum principles common flow measuring devices. ECG223 SOIL ENGINEERING LABORATORY This course provides a hands-on skill on conducting standard soil laboratory testing. Introduction to simple field tests for civil engineering purposes. ECW301 BASIC HYDRAULICS This course builds on the fundamentals given in fluid mechanics and reinforces students understanding of the behaviour of fluids, through the study of the flow of water in typical civil engineering applications. The course covers the study the steady incrompressible flow in pipelines and pipe networks, uniform flow in open channels and fluids machinery. ECG305 SURVEYING This course deals with the work of surveying in civil engineering practices. Students will be introduced to surveying equipment, surveying techniques and analysis. ECG315 SURVEYING PRACTICAL This course deals with the work of surveying in civil engineering practices. Students will be exposed to field work using appropriate survey equipments.

4 ECS308 STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS This course deals with the determination of rotation and deflection for statically determinate structure by using unit load method and Castigliano s second theorem method. Analysis of statically indeterminate structures is by using slope deflection method and moment distribution method. ECS318 STRUCTURAL CONCRETE DESIGN The course deals with the methods of analysis and design of reinforced concrete structures in accordance with the relevant standard. ECG304 HIGHWAY ENGINEERING This course deals with the historical development of highway in malaysia, traffic engineering theory, road geometric and pavement design, traffic control devices, road construction and maintenance. ECM306 BASIC CIVIL ENGINEERING QUANTITIES This course aims to combine knowledge in calculation of quantites and principles of work estimation in order to estimate the total cost of a project. ECM307 INTRODUCTION TO CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT This course provides basic knowledge on the management of construction projects through out the various stages of the project life. The students will also be introduced to the workings of the construction industry. A brief introduction to basic management concepts will also be provided. ECW311 WATER AND WASTE WATER ENGINEERING This course covers three areas namely water supply and wastewater engineering system. The study of water supply will focus on sources of water supply, water quality, water demand and water treatment system. The study of wastewater engineering will cover the collection system of wastewater, conventional wastewater treatment system, enviromental impact of wastewater and its effect on public health.

5 ECS328 STRUCTURAL STEELWORK AND TIMBER This course includes the civil engineering design project is a guided design of steel and timber in accordance with relevant standard. ECM317 CIVIL ENGINEERING CONSTRUCTION PROJECT This course has been prepared for student undertaking Diploma in Civil Engineering (EC110 & EC111) to provide a mechanism for student to practice and execute the combination of knowledge that has been learn before such as engineering economy, construction business and construction management, in the implementation of construction projects. This course also provides basic knowledge on the management of construction projects throughout the various stages of the project life. ECS316 CIVIL ENGINEERING DESIGN PROJECT This civil engineering design project is a guided design of a building, including the design of the structure, foundation and production of design drawings, integrating the relevant knowledge gained from previous courses.
