Friday, August 17th, 2012

Advisors,
I am emailing to let you know that the pre-req is not required this fall  for HU 3885 Intro to Game Design.  If you have a student who would like to take this course, I will be happy to put in a waiver.

The course meets TR 9:35-10:55 (84779 and 84778).

Please let me know if you or interested students have any questions.

Thanks,

CE4404 – Railroad Engineering

This 3 credit course (approved technical elective for CE and ME students) provides an overview of basic elements and roles of rail transportation, history, organizations and economics, safety, intercity and urban passenger rail, freight operations, track-train dynamics, signals and communications, motive power and equipment, track components, construction and maintenance. Course objective is to gain the basic understanding of railroads as a transportation industry. It will approach the subject from a multi-disciplinary perspective, merging fields within and outside engineering to create a complete package.

Attached Syllabus for more information.

CE 5408 Public Transit

An exploration of  public transit that includes history, government policy, user characteristics, urban contexts, market behavior, level of service, sustainability, funding and financing, transit modes and technology, route and alignment planning, operations, facilities design, construction, and future trends. Some of the topics are based on the interests of students.

2012-2013 Senior Design Form

Monday, March 12th, 2012

JUNIORS AND SENIORS!

Below is some information regarding senior design options and also the application form that needs to be turned in if you plan to take senior design next year (2012-13).

2012-13 Senior Design Form

This form needs to be turned in to me no later than Friday, March 16th…for both fall and spring senior design!  Getting an idea of how many students are needing senior design helps in the course planning process.

You must make sure you meet senior design pre-reqs.  Please check the pre-reqs listed on the back of the flowcharts.  During fall registration I will register students who indicated a fall senior design on their form.  Next fall during spring registration I will register the remaining students who indicated they would like to do senior design in the spring.

All CE4905 (one semester) senior design sections meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8-10 am.  Please remember to leave this open in your schedule!   CE4916 (iDesign) will be meeting “By Arrangement”.

Environmental Engineering students….please try not to take senior design in the same semester as BL3310 (Microbiology) (their times usually conflict).

Fall and Spring schedules are up on Banweb!  Happy Scheduling!!

Please let me know if you have any questions.  Thanks!

Hello all!

Attached is some information regarding senior design options and also the application form that needs to be turned in if you plan to take senior design next year (2011-12).

This form needs to be turned in to me no later than Friday, March 18th…for both fall and spring senior design!  Getting an idea of how many students are needing senior design helps in the course planning process.

You must make sure you meet senior design pre-reqs.  Please check the pre-reqs listed on the back of the flowcharts.  During fall registration (in March) I will register students who indicated a fall senior design on their form.  Next fall during spring registration I will register the remaining students who indicated they would like to do senior design in the spring.

During the 2011-12 academic year we have a proposed project that will run the full year (CE4900 & CE4910)….fall and spring.  It would cover CE4905 and a professional elective on your flowchart.  All CE4905 (one semester) and CE4900/4910 (full year) senior design sections meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8-10 am.  Please remember to leave this open in your schedule!

EEN students….please try not to take senior design in the same semester as BL3310 (Microbiology) (their times usually conflict).

The schedule of classes for next year will be coming out soon!

Please let me know if you have any questions.  Thanks!
