Senior Design: 2019-20

The Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering's Senior Design capstone course consists of selected civil engineering projects including planning, preliminary analysis and final design. Different projects are selected each year. Students are assigned to project teams with specific tasks under the direction of a faculty course coordinator. Professional engineers from local firms propose projects and act as consultants to each design team. Emphasis is placed on student initiative, responsibility and resourcefulness in an open-ended project. A final written design report and oral presentation are required for each design team, with emphasis on technical communications, professional ethics and engineering practices.

For questions or additional information on the Senior Design projects featured below, contact Dr. Dan Zitomer, P.E., professor and chair of civil, construction and environmental engineering.
