Special topics in civil engineering offered as course with lecture and/or laboratory. Maximum of 6 credits in combination of CEE 498 and CEE 499 may be applied toward an undergraduate degree.
This course is designed to introduce students to key technologies, theories, and challenges of infrastructure design for development. We will (for example) cover technologies for household power, water, sanitation, indoor air quality, and disaster response in low-income contexts. We will also spend some time exploring development theory and cross-cultural communication as they pertain to global infrastructure design. The course structure allows motivated students to focus on their own particular technological interests while still gaining a broad knowledge base regarding infrastructure & development. Students from outside of CEE are welcome in this course.
