Student Outcomes—(ABET) This course contributes to the civil engineering student outcomes by developing:

1. An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics through differential equations and science including calculus-based physics, chemistry, and at least one additional area of science appropriate to civil engineering;
2.  An ability to apply knowledge of engineering including four technical areas appropriate to civil engineering;
4.  An ability to design a system, component, or process in more than one civil engineering context to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability and sustainability;
6.  An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems; 12. An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice
