TEACHING CIVIL ENGINEERING DESIGN USING PROJECT-ORIENTED INDUSTRY DRIVEN CAPSTONE COURSES

Waddah Akili
2011 Proceedings of the Canadian Engineering Education Association (CEEA)  
Teaching civil engineering design through senior projects or capstone design courses, with industry involvement and support, has increased in recent years.  ...  While some design projects are still of the "made up" type carried out by individual students, the vast majority of projects today deal with "real-world problems" and are usually conducted by student teams  ...  No sooner has a client or professor defined a series of objectives for a design project than the designer-whether in a consulting office or in a classroom-want to find out what the customer really wants  ...
