Course Descriptions

The civil engineering curriculum is designed to give the student a sound education in preparation for this people-oriented, public works profession. The first two years include courses that deal with the principles of mathematics, physical and engineering sciences on which engineering concepts are based, as well as courses in humanities and social sciences and introductory courses in engineering and design. The last two years are devoted to developing the necessary technical competence, as well as the ability to apply the knowledge that the student has acquired to the design and synthesis of complex civil engineering projects.

CE 567 - Applied Hydrologic Modeling

Watershed planning and stormwater management strategies are examined using computer simulation models. With an emphasis on conceptual foundation, students will be introduced to some of the most widely used models in the fields of hydrology and stormwater quantity management. Topics examined include watershed loss, transform, and routing methods, as well as model configuration, calibration, and evaluation.
