Aims
  1. The student is able to describe the nature of knowledge being developed and used in the engineering domain and especially the way models are used in the field of Civil Engineering
  2. The student is able to reflect on the production and use of knowledge in relation to a specific case in the field of Civil Engineering
  3. The student is able to describe and recognize differences between research techniques common in the field of Civil Engineering in particular: experiment, observation, literature- and document study, model study, open interview. The student is able to assess the applicability of certain techniques in a particular research design
Content

This is a part of Module 11, Preparation BSc-thesis Civil Engineering of the Bachelor Civil Engineering. See here for the complete description of this module. 


In module 1-8 of the CiT-programme students gained domain specific knowledge in the different subfields of Civil Engineering and applied this knowledge in projects using several design and research methods.
In Production of Knowledge the focus will be on questions regarding knowledge production in the field of Civil Engineering. What is knowledge? How is knowledge generated and used and by whom? How may I generate knowledge myself?
Special attention is paid to the following aspects:
  • The central role of models (both conceptual and mathematical) within the different subfields of Civil Engineering
  • The role of actors within the production and dissemination of knowledge
  • The production of knowledge in relation to time and space
