Prerequisite: graduate standing in Civil and Environmental Engineering. Credit/no-credit only.
CEE 500, Spring 2009
CEE 500 is scheduled to meet Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, from 3:30 p.m. to 5:20 p.m., in More 234. Typical the class will meet on Tuesdays; however, it may be necessary to have some Thursday meetings towards the end of the quarter.
The class is intended to provide an opportunity for students to learn about new developments in structural engineering. As such, students will give a 20 minute presentation on their on-going research activities or work with another student to review the results of recent research activities by others and give a 30 minute presentation of these activities. Towards the end of the quarter, student presentations will be supplemented by presentations by practicing engineers and visiting researchers.
A passing grade requires making a presentation to the class and missing no more than one scheduled class session.
By Tuesday, 7 April 2009, please send me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the name of your partner, if you are planning to work with someone else.
