4990 Student Design Milestones

CE 4990 is a team-based project course focusing on a design or research effort with a focus in a sub-discipline of civil and environmental engineering. Involves the study of an open-ended project, including problem formulation, development of methodology, data collection from physical experiments and/or models, analysis and interpretation, and formulation of conclusions/solutions.

Teams work together with a faculty member and his or her graduate students to carry out a research project. Each student is expected to devote a level of effort consistent with a three-hour course. As such, students should plan to spend 80 to 120 hours on CE 4990. At the end of the semester, students will create and present a poster as part of the departmental undergraduate symposium.
