Introduces students to the theory tools and techniques of engineering design and creative problem-solving, as well as design issues and practices in civil engineering The course includes several design cases, with an emphasis on built facilities (e.g., buildings, bridges and roads). Project design explicitly concerns technical approaches as well as consideration of the existing built environment, natural environment, economic and social factors, and expected life span. A large design case is introduced, which is used in the subsequent specialty area design subjects
What Will You Learn?
- Apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline. Design systems, components, or processes, meeting specified needs for broadly defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline. Apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature. Conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and analyze and interpret the results to improve processes. Function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams.
