About this Unit
Students will learn about the high potential of waste materials produced by continually growing rapid urbanisation and rising populations, which can be widely reused in engineering projects such as buildings, roads. The focus of this unit is the use of solid waste such as glass, tailings and demolished waste in engineering materials such as concrete, road base and asphalt. In addition, students will explore several recycling and recovery processes and investigate the performance of waste incorporated into engineering materials. Students report on real world state-of-the-art developments while integrating concepts of the circular economy, Australian standards and regulations to ensure the compliance of the developed materials. Work Integrated Leaning (WIL) is a component of this unit.
