METHOD OF INSTRUCTION: Distance Learning Higher Education

 

This distance learning education program is completed by a traditional correspondence instruction method. Once you sign up for the course, Bircham International University will send you (to your mailing address) the suggested textbooks. After reading the book, you will be asked to write a 20 to 35 pages report that reflect your understanding of the book. This report is equivalent to the exam and can be submitted by email or mail. Bircham International University will evaluate your written work. If passed, BIU will issue the corresponding diploma. For more instructions about BIU pedagogy, tutoring, and evaluation, please read our distance learning education study guide. More info...

 

Students enrolling into this distance education program should be aware that:
1. Location: Bircham International University needs a functional geographical location to ship the book and materials for successful completion of this program of study.
2. Communication: Email, courier, phone are key communication instruments with Bircham University that play an important role in the progress and support of this program of study.
3. Capacity: Any impediment, physical or psychological, to read a book and write a report must be communicated to Bircham International University prior to enrollment into this distance learning program.
4. Technology: No specific technology is required to complete this distance education program.
5. Language: Book reading and report writing in other language than English must be requested (and approved by BIU) prior to enrollment in any distance learning program.
6. Discrimination: There is no discrimination with respect to race, color, gender, beliefs or religion.
7. Age: Check the admission requirements for each distance education degree program. More info...

 

All information related to the distance learning degree programs is in English, although you may, upon request and approval, submit the required assignments in other languages.

 

Duration - Civil Engineering Online via distance learning

For a program of 21 credits, the estimated time for completion is 21 weeks. For 45 credits, the estimated time for completion will be 45 weeks, and so on. Calculations are approximate. The length of each distance learning degree program is calculated based on an average of 15 hours of learning per week. It also depends on the number of validated credits from previous knowledge and the level of commitment to the studies.

Foundation Engineering
This course presents methods of subsurface exploration and sampling, shallow foundations, lateral earth pressure theories, and earth retaining systems. It explains the engineering properties of soils and how they relate to design and construction including soil identification and classification.
Academic Supervisor : Miguel Ángel Fernández Sánchez

Surveying
This course examines the principles and techniques of surveying; errors in surveying operations; distance measurements; chain surveying; angles measurements and bearings; coordinates geometry; leveling; leveling of profiles and cross-sections contour lines; areas and volumes computations; and photometry.
Academic Supervisor : Miguel Ángel Fernández Sánchez

Materials Science
This course explains how materials are manufactured; why they behave the way they do; how they are fabricated into structural objects-parts; and how they can be compounded into alloys, reinforced composite structures, and flexibilized toughened structures. It considers the properties of materials utilized in practice of engineering, and the atomic, molecular, and crystalline structure of metals, ceramics, composites, and polymeric materials.
Academic Supervisor : Wolf Dettmer
