To learn basic skills in AutoCAD to be used in upper-division CE classes.
To gain additional skills in computer programming through the use of Visual Basic for EXCEL.
To be introduced to the types of projects that civil engineers design and build.Course Goals from CE Faculty
Most of our time will be involved in the design and the calculation of engineering projects.
Usually we will produce small working drawings of our result.
As part of the calculations, we often will use spreadsheets (such as EXCEL) that we might create, or that another engineer may have made before.Who we will probably be
The list shows the favorites
Lecture/Discussion/ Problem Solving.
Working in teams, group interaction.
Visual presentations by instructor (Mmedia, video)
Computer assignments.Teaching Style
Sometimes even with no power and no electricity.
Earthquake response, accident investigation.
We cannot become so dependent upon computer facilities that when we lose them we can’t continue our work.
Lives sometime depend upon our immediate response to all types of disasters.Civil Engineers sometimes work in less than ideal situations
