Principles of Structure – Online project: Developing a paper bridge

Principles of Structures course for Quantity Surveying and Construction students in Faculty of Built Environment and Surveying, has adopted an online teaching and learning. To deliver the course effectively, students are divided into groups. They are required to study the problem on how to develop a paper bridge that can withstand certain load, length and other requirements. They are required to discuss the design concept, loading, testing and finally develop the final bridge.

This is one of the Problem-based Learning via online in this course. The result is fantastic when comparing this to non-engineering students with the pure engineering students. This has increased their understanding on the principles of the structure and the most important is they enjoy it very much.
