CIVL 6692 - Civil and Environmental Engineering Seminar


Civil and construction engineering programs tend to stress problem solving by analysis and mathematics while rarely mentioning the importance of carefully considering the physical and social environment of a project. Because many engineers work with isolated bits of knowledge there is a failure to think holistically. Successful project delivery is the result of a respectful appreciation of the project’s natural environment. An awareness of and the need to respect nature and her forces during engineering design and construction is the theme of this course. 3 credits.
