INDUSTRY AND PROFESSION
EXAMINATION QUESTIONS 2014-2015
This sheet is for all ‘first sit’ and ‘resit’ candidates for H21IP1. The exam paper comprises 6 questions.
You are required to answer ALL questions. You can prepare as much as you like but you will not be
allowed to take any notes or other material into the examination except as permitted in the rubric
(overleaf). The rubric on the paper is essentially the same as last year. A calculator is not needed.
Bear in mind the weighting of each question. There are 120 minutes for 100 marks so a known question
worth 15 marks should be allowed about 18 minutes for producing a checked answer.
Some past papers should be available in University Library resources for the module. Some past exam
papers refer to earlier versions of CESMM (now 2012 version 4),the CDM Regulations (now 2007 version)
and ICE Rules for Professional Conduct (now 2008 version) so be wary of referring to any past answers
you may find. Current module handouts and lectures as PowerPoint presentations provide information
and are available on Moodle. Lectures and revision classes provide some suggested points for answers.
External web sites provide useful further material that can attract higher marks showing that you have
read more widely and found information for yourself. Remember also the lectures given by guest
speakers and any other outside activities you take part in such as a careers fair or a site visit. You
should ideally attend all classes to get maximum information to help you develop answers. You can if
you wish provide outline answers for the lecturer to peruse and comment on (not mark), up to the end
of Autumn Term. These can be handwritten or typed out and can be submitted by email.
Your exam answers must be handwritten in appropriate English using essay-style prose, elaborating on a
range of points. Bullet-point lists can be used as parts of complete sentences with appropriate
explanation or discussion as required by the question (see next two sentences as examples of using
commas or bullet points acceptably). The key words in the questions are (for example) list, state,
outline, define, identify, indicate, give, comment, describe, explain and discuss. Each requires slightly
different types of answer as shown below:
Give a brief set of points
List or express concisely in proper English
Give a brief description/explanation in proper English
State appropriately in proper English
State appropriately in proper English
Give brief points or views in proper sentences
Give information in proper sentences
Clarify understanding/interpretation in proper sentences
Give balanced views from various perspectives.
For general marking criteria please refer to the Department of Civil Engineering M/BEng Handbook.
Higher marks can be earned by including extra researched information in answers (provided it is
relevant). An excellent answer will attract a mark of >70% and a barely satisfactory answer will attract a
mark of ~40%. An average answer, given that the questions are known in advance, should attract a
mark of around 60%.
The rubric on the front of the exam paper is essentially:
Time allowed TWO hours.

dictionaries, may be used.
Explain the roles of the parties and organisations involved in a typical newbuild civil engineering project (one using the ‘design-bid-build’ system), from
project conception to constructed facility in operation.
Explain how key industrial and educational developments from
approximately 1750 to 1850 led to the the formation and evolution of the
civil engineering profession in Britain.
Explain briefly what would be considered as good professional behaviour for
civil engineers at work and in their work.
Discuss, with examples as appropriate, the professional civil engineer’s roles
and responsibilities in promoting, developing and delivering sustainable
solutions in infrastructure development.
Discuss, with examples as appropriate, ways of ensuring, as far as possible,
the health and safety of construction workers.
Discuss the advantages and disadvantages that might be had from using
