The Course Modules are designed to help students to understand Highway Engineering & Highway Design.
Highway Engineering involves design, construction, operation & maintenance of roads to ensure safe & effective transportation of people & goods. The Course provides various key design principles and design procedures to assist students to understand best design and construction practices.
Please see the Promotional Course Videos for a quick flavour.
Highways Design module provides the design process of highway link design, horizontal alignment, vertical profile, super-elevation, stopping sight distance analysis, visibility checks, verge widening requirements, departure & relaxation, and various design checks. Also covers kerb and footway development.
Pavement Design module provides a detailed process of pavement design and covers full depth pavement construction process and Overlay/ Inlay treatment. It covers existing pavement improvement process, carriageway widening, and subgrade improvement process. it also covers high friction surface (HFS) treatment process by providing details cold HFS and Hot HFS.
Junction Design module covers the design process of the 4-legged junction, 3-legged junction and T-junctions. It covers junction visibility, junction swept path analysis, cycle lane design and provisions for disabled road users. It also covers the basic concept of grade-separated junctions such as half cloverleaf, Dumb-bell Roundabout, 2-bridge Roundabout, etc.
Roundabout Design module covers the detailed process of Roundabout Design. It covers the crown line design. entry/ exit design, deflection radius requirements and various value engineering solutions. It also covers various design checks, drainage low point checks and cycle lane design provisions. It also provides key tips to design a safe roundabout.
Standard Details Module covers all highway details such as Pavement Details, Kerbing & Edging details, Footpaths details, Bus Stop Details, etc. These standard products are generally procured from suppliers and installed on the site as per the standard details requirements and specifications.
GCE Mentor is a group of Civil Engineering experts from the industry. Mentors prepare, compile the course content and review it before publishing. Several iteration and value addition takes place before publishing the course. It is vital for Mentors to not only make the course engaging but also provide important and advance information to GCE Students. We would encourage to GCE students to please share their feedback of every course module as they progress the course. Your valuable input will not only improve our current courses, it will also help us to understand Student’s perspective so that we can improve our upcoming course modules.
