Civil Engineering• "Civil engineering is the profession in which a knowledge

of the mathematical and physical sciences gained by study, experience, and practice is applied with judgment to develop ways to utilize, economically, the materials and forces of nature for the progressive well-being of humanity in creating, improving, and protecting the environment, in providing facilities for community living, industry and transportation, and in providing structures for the use of humanity.” - American Society of Civil Engineers, 1961

• Application of Math and Science as Services for Humanity

Engineering & Project Management (CE167)

• Also known as Construction Engineering• Planning and execution of designs from other

engineers• More of the Business side of engineering

o Managemento Decision Makingo Engineering Economicso Contractingo Planning, Estimating, Schedulingo Law and Ethics

Page 5: Transferring From Chabot

Environmental Engineering (CE111)• Air Quality Engineering

o Climate Change and Pollution

• Environmental Fluid Mechanics & Hydrologyo Water Flow and Water Resourceso Coastal Ocean, Surface and Subsurface Water Flow

•Water Quality Engineeringo Sanitary Engineeringo Sources, Transport, and Treatment of chemical and microbiological contaminants that affect water

Page 6: Transferring From Chabot

GeoEngineering (CE175)• Rational exploitation of mineral resources• Providing materials for construction• Providing a firm foundation for our built

infrastructure• Using and maintaining the water flowing

through the ground• Mitigation of natural hazards of all kinds

Page 7: Transferring From Chabot

Structural Engineering (CE120)• Structural Design and Structural Analysis• Wind and Earthquake Engineering• Buildings, Bridges, Towers, Flyovers,

Tunnels, Off-Shore Structures

Page 8: Transferring From Chabot

Transportation Engineering (CE155)

• Transportation of People and Goods efficiently and safely

• Streets, Canals, Highways, Rail Systems, Airports, Ports, and Mass Transit

Lower Division Courses• CE 11 – Engineered Systems & Sustainability

o Basic principles of environmental science needed to understand natural processes as they are influenced by human activities

• CE 60 – Civil Engineering Materialso =Engr 45 + Lots of Concreteo Introduction to structure and properties of civil engineering

materials such as asphalt, cements, concrete, geological materials (e.g. soil and rocks), steel, polymers, and wood

• CE 70 – Engineering Geologyo Principles of physical and structural geology; the influence

of geological factors on engineering works and the environment.

o Field Trip to local points of geological interest

Page 13: Transferring From Chabot

Lower Division Courses• CE 93 – Engineering Data Analysis

o Application of the concepts and methods of probability theory and statistical inference to CEE problems and data; applications to various CEE problems and real data will be developed by use of MATLAB and existing codes

o Pay attention in Engr 25. MATLAB will come up a lot!!!

Transition to Upper Division is tough• More intense and in depth material• Much more time devoted to study• More need for independence• Attend Office Hours!!!

Page 14: Transferring From Chabot

Upper Division Courses• ME 104– Engineering Mechanics II - Dynamics

o Introduction to the dynamics of particles and rigid bodies.

o Foundation for Automotive Engineering and Aeronautical Engineeringo You will learn the basics of Rocket Science!!

Page 15: Transferring From Chabot

Upper Division Courses• CE 130– Mechanics of Materials

o Introduction to the mechanics of deformable solids; elastic and ultimate resistance of materials; stress and deformation analysis

o Builds on Engr 25 (Statics) and Engr 45 (Materials Engineering)o How and why objects deform and/or fail

Page 16: Transferring From Chabot

Outside of Class• Engineer-In-Training Examination

o First step towards becoming a Professional Engineer

o Usually taken junior/senior yearo Review of basic engineering knowledgeo Practically a necessity for a Civil Engineer

• GRE, Graduate Records Examinationo SAT for Graduate Schoolo Required if you want to go to graduate school

(Masters, PhD)

Page 17: Transferring From Chabot

Student Organizations• American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE)

o Concrete Canoeo Steel Bridgeo Career Fair: Many companies come to campus

to recruit interns and new gradso Company Info Sessions

Page 18: Transferring From Chabot

Student Organizations• Chi Epsilon, National Civil Engineering Honor

Societyo Conception, Design, and Constructiono Scholarship, Practicality, Character, Sociabilityo Social and Academic Events

Page 19: Transferring From Chabot

Internships• Provides practical experience• See how the class work applies to the real

world• I have worked for the City of Palo Alto

o Utilities Engineering – Water, Gas, Wastewatero Use AutoCAD to map underground utilities as

well as do surveying in the field
