Structural Design and Engineering

Module name (EN):
Name of module in study programme. It should be precise and clear.
Structural Design and Engineering
Degree programme:
Study Programme with validity of corresponding study regulations containing this module.
Civil and structural engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2011
Module code: BIBA211
The exam administration creates a SAP-Submodule-No for every exam type in every module. The SAP-Submodule-No is equal for the same module in different study programs.
Hours per semester week / Teaching method:
The count of hours per week is a combination of lecture (V for German Vorlesung), exercise (U for Übung), practice (P) oder project (PA). For example a course of the form 2V+2U has 2 hours of lecture and 2 hours of exercise per week.
4VU (4 hours per week)
ECTS credits:
European Credit Transfer System. Points for successful completion of a course. Each ECTS point represents a workload of 30 hours.
Semester: 2
Mandatory course: yes
Language of instruction:
Written exam

[updated 28.09.2020]
Applicability / Curricular relevance:
All study programs (with year of the version of study regulations) containing the course.

BIBA211 (P110-0026) Civil and structural engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2011 , semester 2, mandatory course
BIBA211 (P110-0026) Civil and structural engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2017 , semester 2, mandatory course
Workload of student for successfully completing the course. Each ECTS credit represents 30 working hours. These are the combined effort of face-to-face time, post-processing the subject of the lecture, exercises and preparation for the exam.

The total workload is distributed on the semester (01.04.-30.09. during the summer term, 01.10.-31.03. during the winter term).
60 class hours (= 45 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 120 hours (equivalent to 4 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 75 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.

Learning outcomes:
Structural Design:
 After successfully completing this module, students will be able to draw structural details.
 - They will have basic knowledge about the design, manufacture and assembly of building elements and structures including the integration of the technical structure.
 - They will be familiar with the application and use of building materials and building products.
 - They will be familiar with the functional requirements for components and buildings such as moisture protection, thermal insulation, sound insulation and fire protection and their structural implementation.
 - They will be able to apply building regulations, especially safety regulations and standards.
Structural Physics:
 -Students will have acquired knowledge about and understand processes in structural physics (heat, moisture and sound).
 -They will be able to use their knowledge of structural physics for structural designs.
 -They will be able to independently develop and apply subject-related content.
