About this course

Civil Engineering is concerned primarily with the planning, analysis, and design skills for such areas as structures, geotechnical, transportation, and water resources.

  • Structures:
    Analysis and behavior of steel, concrete and composite structures. Classical and finite element analysis of structures in static and dynamic environments. Research projects include: fiber reinforced plastics, prestressed concrete bridge behavior, wind engineering, inelastic seismic response of concrete and steel connections and systems, and nonlinear dynamics.
  • Geotechnical:
    Basic geotechnical engineering, foundation design, dynamics of soil, groundwater seepage and hydrology. Advanced geotechnical engineering and environmental geotechnology. Research projects include: subsurface exploration, soil and material testing, ground improvement and stabilization, soil-structure interaction and soil contamination.
  • Water Resources:
    Surface and groundwater with emphasis on open channels, closed conduits, modeling, stormwater management, hydraulic designs, hydrologic characterization, reservoir, systems, and groundwater systems are studied with respect to theory and practice.
  • Transportation:
    The curriculum in transportation engineering covers planning, design, and operation of transportation facilities including highways, mass transit, airports, and railroads. The coursework covers state-of-the-art Intelligent Vehicle Highway Systems (IVHS). Tesearch in the areas of traffic incident management, traffic safety, advanced traveler information systems, efficiency of electronic toll collection systems, and air quality modeling of electronic toll plazas is carried out through the Transportation Systems Institute (TSI).
