Second in a two-course sequence for the senior design project in civil and environmental engineering. Application of civil and environmental engineering concepts in the design of a project that integrates the concepts and technical knowledge learned in two or more of the following disciplines: engineering mechanics, materials, environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, transportation engineering, and water resources engineering.
The course will provide students with the ability to:
I. recognize the necessity to consider both technical and non-technical factors associated with real-world projects;
II. get exposure to the ethical and professional issues in civil engineering design;
III. identify and develop the scope of work for a project;
IV. comprehend the design of civil engineering structures in a “full picture” capacity;
V. work on a team to execute the project;
VI. present their project to practicing engineers;
VII. develop meeting agenda and maintain meeting minutes;
VIII. understand the role of cost estimation and engineering economics in civil engineering design;
IX. prepare the design documentation for a realistic civil engineering structure and present it in the form of a professional technical report;
X. understand the limitations of existing design codes in the design of special civil engineering structures;
XI. present the progress and final project reports in oral and written forms;
