What should I study? Lecture notes

UNRWA specifications

UNRWA contracts

Consult some UNRWA staff or senior engineers if you know some.

Exam highlights The exam is a comprehensive one (design, management, concrete technology, soil mechanics, infrastructure, tests, reinforcement)

Full of Varity (multiple choices, calculations, qualitative and quantitative questions, drawings) but mostly implementation based.

Academic, real cases, and case studies

Contracts and claims

Exam highlights Design is classic.

Settlement and deflection, failure shape.

Management questions are mostly related to time schedules and Gantt chart.

Concrete technology & tests: mixes, w/c, mostly related to implementation (cast, shuttering, support, vibration, curing,. Tests: cubes, Schmitt hammer, load test, core test, & slump.

Exam highlights Reinforcement: tests, spacing, hocks, cross-section limitations, cover limitation.

Soil: types, bearing capacity, compaction, collapse angles, water table and content.

Foundation & retaining walls: types, design, over-turning, sliding, discharge.

Infrastructure: roads, survey, compaction water & wastewater piping, excavation. Tests: marshal and CBR.

Exam highlights Reinforcement: tests, spacing, hocks, cross-section limitations, cover limitation.

Soil: types, bearing capacity, compaction, collapse angles, water table and content.

Infrastructure: roads, survey, compaction water & wastewater piping, excavation. Tests: marshal and CBR.

Exam highlights Contractual questions: guarantees types, insurance, tender documents, special & general conditions, measurements, disputes & arbitration, claims.

Tender documents priorities & order in case of contradiction (drawings & details, specifications, BOQ).

Variation orders (VOs) & fines.

Breach, cancelation, suspension, and termination (with guarantee liquidation).

9Various questions In case of cube results failure 7 or 28 days, standard deviation, what would be your action? In case of core test failure? Difference between calendar/working days. A contractor fail to do proper curingA contractor not committed to proper inspection & approval (e.g. cast with no approval). A contractor dismantled slab support before time? Can you terminate a contractor? Can you suspend a contractor? How to deal with a slow performing/delayed contractor? Aggregate specifications.

Various questions Level percentage of error? Checking a pipeline without survey deviceInternal water piping checkingDrop manhole Maximum and minimum slopes for sewage pipes with justification.Areas calculation (sphere, triangle,..etc).

Word of advice Time management

Do not start with design questions

Do not panic

Multiple choices are very tricky
