A final design course in which advanced principles of design are learned by application to a suitable civil engineering project. The course, which builds upon the foundation established in CE 295, focuses on approaches to be taken in defining complex problems (including the outlining of project objectives and scope), acquisition of suitable data resources, generation of alternative solutions, methods for selecting design alternatives and project implementation. Design philosophy and methods are discussed and explored in the context of the particular assignment given for the current year. The course requires that the students work in groups to achieve the desired outcome. Group interaction and performance is monitored throughout. Guest lectures from various industrial and other representatives will be provided to enhance the student's design experience.
