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 487 - Technical System Design & Synthesis

Technical system design of subdisciplinary elements of civil engineering projects submitted by corporate and governmental sponsors will be completed by individual team members to fulfill the needs of a team project initiated with CE486 and continuing in CE488. The “x” will be used to identify subdiscipline designation (c = general civil design, e= environmental, g = geotechnical, s = structural, t = transportation, w = water resources).
