Roads are a major component of civil engineering infrastructure systems. A significant proportion of civil engineering professionals are employed in designing and maintaining roads and pavements. To equip students with a valuable knowledge in and understanding of road and pavement engineering, this unit covers the overview of transportation infrastructure systems, road design principles and processes, design of roadside drainage systems and design of heavily-trafficked flexible and rigid road pavements so that advanced knowledge and skills for road and pavement engineering professionals or highly skilled work and/or further learning are achieved. Students will work on projects using relevant software so that they will be experienced to the real world of road and pavement engineers.
