The course is an empirical introduction to the understanding of structural action and potential of materials, with an emphasis on structure as an integral part of architectural design. It deals with basic definition of forces, stresses and strains, definition of structural elements and systems, resisting deformation, stability, historical development of structures and interdisciplinary design process. The course explores properties of materials - tensile, compressive, shear stresses and strains in simple structures. Stresses and deformations in beams, restrained and continuous beams are also considered.

. This course provides students with requisite knowledge in the practice of property valuation which is one of the core subjects in Estate Management. Specifically, students will be able to appreciate economic basis of property values, the concepts of value, price, worth and their relationship with value; determinants of property values etc. After studying course you should be able to explain the types, basis and purpose of valuation; identify factors affecting property values and the process involved in property valuation.
This is a course designed for students in quantity surveying and other allied disciplines. That is, the Architecture, Building and Estate Surveying students will be given the opportunity to understand the rudiments of building measurement. The main focus of the course is to impact to the students the major traditional functions of a quantity surveyor in the ways they communicates/interacts with other construction professionals in the construction industry, principles of building measurement and the preparation of the bill of quantity. Topics to be covered include the introduction to the methods of communication in the construction industry, applied mensuration and bill preparation process with emphasis on the communication in the construction industry, the use of the Building and Engineering Standard Methods of Measurement (BESMM 3), bill preparation processes and the measurement of simple building foundation.
This course is an introduction to construction of buildings. It is designed primarily for students in Quantity Surveying and Estate Management. It focuses on the study of the following aspects of building construction; site preparation, construction of simple foundations, floor construction, walls, and general concrete works. As a practical oriented course, the focus is to impart understanding of the construction methods in the students in order to prepare them for other specialised applications to be encountered at higher levels. Topics to be covered include functional requirements and their design and construction requirements; types and methods of classification; component members and methods of construction of the selected elements and trade works in the building.
This is a course designed for students in quantity surveying. The students will be given the opportunity to understand the rudiments of ensuring good building designs. The main focus of the course is to impact to the students the knowledge of the various properties of building materials that should be taken into consideration when designing buildings to enhance interior comfort. Topics to be covered include the introduction to the science of environmental physics, Basic heat; light and sound, level of thermal comfort, calculation of thermal indices, ventilation and conditioning, basic units of lighting; luminance, illumination and their calculations, noise, room acoustics, reverberation and sound insulation theory.
This course is a second year course on basic elements of planning designed primarily for students in Urban and Regional Planning, Remote Sensing and Geo-informatics and Estate Management. It is a course that provides basic knowledge on planning models â€“ iconic, analogue and symbolic models (descriptive, predictive and planning), the planning process narrating stages and techniques in planning activities, and the process of generating and transforming urban and regional structure in the global system with particular emphasis on the trend in the formation of human communities â€“ village, town and city. It also focuses on the city structure and urban system including the formal and informal economic, social and physical structure.
This course is a build up to Theory of Structures I (ARC211). Also it is introductory course to design of structures, definitions, convections, rational analysis of structural members of system and common language for discussion. Calculation is kept to a necessary minimum instead concentrating on imbuing understanding that will allow rational decision making in architectural design process. And overlap with a studio work project to illustrate the process of basic static and the application of statics to the determination of reactions, stresses, shears and moments in trussed structures. Introduction to the analysis of statically indeterminate structures, moment area theorem, conjugate beam and moment distribution.
This will involve field planting. Each student will be allocated a field plot for the planting and management of an arable crop. Students will be exposed to practical work in animal production and health, fisheries and wildlife management, and crop and forestry nurseries.
This course provides students with requisite knowledge in the practice of property valuation which is one of the core subjects in Estate Management. Specifically, students will be able to identify principal types of landed properties, appropriate valuation methods to apply as well as data requirement for the use of the methods.
This course is a development over the Principles of Measurement & Description I taught in first semester. The Principles of Measurement & Description II is designed primarily for students of Quantity Surveying and allied disciplines. However, it also meets the need of students in other fields, as a course that provides hands-on training on the principles behind measurement works in relation to construction works. As a rider to Construction Technology, the focus is to impart useful skills on the students in order to enhance their measurement skills and ability to form a detailed and relevant descriptions as stipulated in the current edition of Building and Engineering Standard Method of Measurement 3 (BESMM 3). Topics to be covered include more examples of substructural works, especially pad, deep strip, raft foundations. Measurement of Superstructure items, i.e. roof, doors and windows including ironmongery. Sport items, preliminary items, provisional sums, pc sums and the use of bill diagrams.
This course is an introduction to construction of buildings; it builds on the knowledge gained from the preliminary course â€“ QSV 203 (Construction Technology I). It is designed primarily for students in Quantity Surveying and Estate Management. However, it focuses on the selected elements and components of a building which includes roof, doors and windows, stairs, surface finishes, temporary works and drainage works in building. As a practical oriented course, the focus is to impart understanding of the construction methods in the students in order to prepare them for other specialised applications to be encountered at higher levels. Topics to be covered include functional requirements and their functions; types and methods of classification; component members and methods of construction of the selected elements in the building.
This course is to exposed students to practical work in the following areas: Safety precaution, accidents: types, causes & prevention, type of site, workshop layout and organisation, type of workshop.
