  • CE405: Soil Mechanics: The objective of this course is to introduce the
    subject of soil mechanics and provide the basics of geotechnical engineering
    to all civil engineering students. In this course, students will understand the
    basics of soils through hands on experience in the geotechnical laboratory.
    Some of the important topics that students will learn during the course: soil
    structure and grain size; identification and classification of soils for
    engineering purposes; physical and engineering properties of soils.
  • CE445: Mechanics of Materials: This course provides an introduction to the
    mechanics of solids with applications to science and engineering.
  • CE 470: Structural Analysis: This course introduces modelling and design
    of structural elements subjected to transverse loads (beams). It builds on prior
    knowledge and skills of analysis and design of structural members subjected
    to axial loads and trusses.
  • CE 430: Transportation Engineering1: This course introduces
    technological, economic, and social aspects of transportation. Emphasizes
    design and functioning of transportation systems and their components. It also
    covers supply-demand interactions; system planning, design, and
    management; traffic flow, intersection control and network analysis;
    institutional and energy issues; and environmental impacts.
  • OR 425: Operations Research Techniques: Operations research helps in
    solving problems in different environments that needs decisions. The coursecovers topics that include: linear programming, Transportation, Assignment,
    and CPM/ MSPT techniques. Analytic techniques and computer packages will
    be used to solve problems facing business managers in decision environments.
  • IE 405: Engineering Cost Estimating: This course introduces the types of
    cost estimation from the conceptual design phase through the more detailed
    design phase of a construction project. In addition, the course highlights the
    importance of controlling costs and how to monitor project cash flow.
  • CE 420: Properties and Behavior of Engineering Materials:
    This course covers basic principles that govern the properties and behavior of
    engineering materials; atomic structures, interatomic forces, amorphous and
    crystalline structures; phase transformations; the study of the capabilities and
    limitations of different materials: metals, polymers, ceramics; and corrosion.
  • CE 425: Reinforced Concrete Design: This course covers the structural
    design of reinforced concrete and prestressed concrete members. Topics
    include the structural design of reinforced concrete slabs (including two way
    slabs and flat plates), beams, columns and footings; prestressed concrete
  • CE 515 :Traffic Engineering Operations: This course in an Introduction to
    traffic engineering analysis, operation and control including traffic capacity
    analysis, introduction to traffic studies, basics of traffic signal design and
    phase timing, analysis and design of pre-timed and actuated signalized
    intersections, signal coordination for arterials, and traffic modelling, including
    computer applications.
  • CE 450: Hydraulics and Hydrologic Systems: This course provides a basic
    introduction to hydrologic engineering, including fundamentals of hydrology,
    rainfall‐runoff modelling, hydraulic processes (including both pressurized
    pipe flow and open channel flow), and hydrologic frequency analysis.
  • CE 460: Transportation Engineering 2: This course emphasizes design and
    functioning of transportation systems and their components. It covers supply-
    demand interactions; system planning, design, and management; traffic flow,
    intersection control and network analysis; institutional and energy issues; and
    environmental impacts.
  • CE 480: Street and Highway Design: You will be given guidance and
    practice in the principles of good highway design. Emphasis is placed on
    efficiency and safety of design within the national recommendations. The
    combined effects of physical construction with traffic management are
    explored. Manual calculations are explained as is the use of appropriate
    computer programs in highway design.
