Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
1 Perform basic calculations related to analysis of road geometry design
2 Apply principles of pavement safety, drainage, design and rehabilitation
3 determine appropriate strategies for pavement maintenance.
