Example Learning Outcomes
 Concrete Technology: Conducted in-depth study of the various factors affecting the behavior and performance of concrete.
Evaluated engineering aspects of the strength of concrete, permeability and durability, deformation and cracking, curing,
admixtures, temperature effects and specialized testing procedures.
 Structural Engineering Concepts: Explored concepts in structural engineering related to characteristics of loading and the
behaviour and design of structural systems, with attention to ultimate strength, stability, connections and post-buckling strength.
Capstone Project: Completed an exploratory project to develop a new concrete with lesser environmental impact, effectively innovating
a new material composition emphasizing flax shives (a waste product from the textile industry obtained from the stem of flax plants) as
the main ingredient.

 Completed analytical testing to measure the load bearing strength and environmental impact of the produced concrete.
 Diligently managed time and priorities to meet a sensitive deadline for the completion of this project.
 Applied skills in the use of AutoCAD 3D to design wooden frames and other equipment required for this project.
 Drafted a final engineering report outlining the concrete’s effectiveness as a potential insulation material.
 Successfully achieved an established benchmark for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
