    2nd Year and 3rd Year Civil Engineering Courses Difficulty

    Hello for the people that have done these courses from the 2nd and 3rd Year Civ Eng, which ones stand out as being difficult? And which ones stand out as being easy? I'm just asking for a general feel of ones that stand out as being all around difficult/require hard work so I can plan my other degree courses with it as well as planning for trimesters

    Re: 2nd Year and 3rd Year Civil Engineering Courses Difficulty

    Tried to be objective from easiest to hardest:

    CVEN1300

    CVEN2301
    CVEN3303
    CVEN3031
    MATH2019
    CVEN2401

    CVEN2002
    CVEN2101
    CVEN2501
    CVEN3101

    CVEN2303
    CVEN3202
    CVEN3203

    CVEN3304

    I haven't done the 3rd year water courses yet but I assume they fall around middle bracket. Keep in mind CVEN3031 and CVEN2101 are largely weighted by group assessments - I would have put them higher on list just from groupwork experience. I enjoyed the geotechnical courses so I would have put them slightly a bit lower on the list personally (CVEN3202 has bonus marks, CVEN3203 has great scaling however to compensate for difficulty). CVEN3303 was extremely easy for a third year course when I did it as hand-in assignment answers were essentially given and it was open book final exam. CVEN3304 on the other hand is the hardest for me; pop quizzes in lectures, ROTEish first strand on concrete materials, Ali being course coordinator.
