This is courseware used by Professor Howard Turner at California PolyTechnic University, geared toward upper-level university students. Includes labs, tests, and more.

Civil Engineering Senior Design Project
Courseware is prepared and used by Professor Ramon Sierra, P.E. and Jose A. Quintana, P.E. from FIU. The objective of the compulsory senior course is to experience the design of a practical project utilizing knowledge learned from previous courses in order to present a final solution. The design requirements are performed under the supervision of a faculty member and a professional engineer with special emphasis on five educational objectives: technical proficiency, communication, responsible citizenship, lifelong learning, and ethical behavior.

Student Project for Water Distribution System  
Provided by Kurt N. Ohlinger Ph.D. PE, Associate Director, Office of Water Programs, California State University, Sacramento. This is a term project where students learn how to design a drinking water distribution system for a proposed development. The project incorporates the use of Bentley’s WaterCAD software. All documents and pertinent regulations are included in the package provided to the student teams. A Microsoft Word document is included so the project overview can be modified as needed to fit your course requirements.

Student Project for Modeling and Wastewater Collection System Model 
Provided by Kurt N. Ohlinger Ph.D. PE, Associate Director, Office of Water Programs, California State University, Sacramento. This project is designed as a real-world problem of taking an existing sewer system (septic tanks) and presenting a preliminary design. Bentley’s SewerCAD software is used to design the wastewater collection system. All documents and pertinent regulations are included in the package provided to the student teams. A Microsoft Word document is included so the project overview can be modified as needed to fit your course requirements.
