All assignments must be submitted as pdf le electronically through the learn website in addition to a printout version to be placed in the appropriate box. Late assignments will have 20% deducted for each day late, unless prior arrangement has been made. Please contact the course coordinator (preferably well in advance) if you have genuine diculties meeting submission dates. The 15% Transportation Test (test duration is 90 mins) is currently scheduled on the 9th May at C1 lecture theatre from 6.30pm to 8pm. The transportation material covered in this test will also be examined to some extent in the nal year exam. Any “CIVIL” approved calculator is allowed. Students with genuine medical grounds may apply for an Aegrotat for the nal examination, with their grade to be based on their internal coursework, mid-semester test and exam result (if any). To achieve a pass in the course, students need to achieve at least 40% in each of the Surveying and Transport course work and at least 40% in the mid-term test and at least 40% in each of the Transport and Surveying components of the nal exam. The total mark to pass the course is also expected to be at least 50% (out of 100%). Repeat students must see the Course Coordinator ASAP with regards to exemptions from labs, assignments, etc. If desired, students with previous relevant academic passes or practical experience (e.g. Polytechnic surveying courses, previous engineering employment) may also apply to the Course Coordinator for exemption from part of the coursework. All exemptions must be conrmed by Friday 4th March. All students will (re)sit the test and nal exam. Textbooks Recommended Texts: Study Guides: Study Guides will be available in PDF format on the course webpage on Learn and students can view and print them (eg, via the UC copy centre). Students are expected to bring their electronic or printed materials of the study guide to all sessions and record their notes in them. Other Suggested Texts: Austroads (2009), Guide to Road Design (esp. Part 3: Geometric Design) – electronic copies will be available on Learn. Banks, James H.
