CEN 2001 - Site Engineering

Credits: 4
The course is organized into three modules: Lecture, Site Design Lab, and AutoCAD Lab. The lecture module is an introduction, from a Civil Engineering perspective, to: (a) the infrastructure systems that support urban socioeconomic activities, and (b) fundamental system design and analysis methods. Lecture topics include infrastructure system concepts, case study of the Panama Canal, building systems, analysis and design fundamentals, transportation systems, water & wastewater systems, energy systems, and sustainable systems. The surveying lab and AutoCAD lab provide students with the necessary knowledge to select and develop sites for civil engineering structures. Proper site selection and engineering have a significant impact on the economics of a project and long term utility and sustainability of the constructed facility.
Prerequisite(s): Civil Engineering majors or consent of the instructor.
When Offered: Every fall semester
