E656: Engineering the Built Environment in Splash Fall 2019 (Nov. 02, 2019)
When a civil engineer is asked "So what is it you even design?" the answer is often as simple as the wave of a hand. Most of the time with a quick look around you will find yourself surrounded on all sides by the product of civil engineering and its many sub-disciplines. With roles in structures, construction, transportation, energy, water, and environmental protection, civil engineers must master a multitude of concepts and problem solving styles to stitch our built environment together. From bridges & dams to tunnels & towers no project is too big to tackle. This course will offer a broad overview of the inner workings of our built environment and it will provide an in-depth look at some of the most exciting challenges faced by today's civil engineers.
