- 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
- 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
- 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.
