CER 498 - Design of Civil Engineering Systems
(3 cr.) This course provides an opportunity for students to apply and synthesize their knowledge of civil engineering. Multidisciplinary teamwork is emphasized. Course work from the various subdisciplines of civil engineering provides the foundation for this course. Students develop requirements, generate alternatives, make practical engineering approximations, analyze feasibility and make decisions leading to a completed design. The design includes principles of sustainability taking into account realistic constraints. These may include economic, environmental, legal and cultural issues. Deliverables include a comprehensive design report including drawings and a client briefing. This course provides an integrative experience that supports the overarching academic program goal. Prerequisite: CER 310, CER 330, CER 340, CER 350; Every Year, Spring
