This course introduces students to the 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 linear public works (e.g., roads, roundabouts, etc). Project design explicitly concerns technical approaches with CAD/CAE/BIM software as well as consideration of the existing environment and technical English writing.
Students need to have and bring along a personal laptop to each class and lab. Laptops should have AutoCAD Civil 3D 2015 installed. Other material will be distributed.
Students will be graded on several design tasks. The CAD assignments and the tasks on technical English writing will also be checked for completion. Class participation is essential and will be considered in the final grade.
Evaluation will be an integral part of the class. This allows students to contribute to the teaching and development of the subject. The main factor will be the assistance, class participation and completion of tasks.
