Proposal ID: 106773
Type: New Course
Submission Date: May 8, 2019 10:25am
Effective Term: Summer 2019
The Infrastructure Materials focus area in Civil and Construction Engineering has grown to five faculty over the past 10 years. We are initiating several CAT IIs to revise our course offerings where there was overlap, to put courses in a logical order, to make that order clear to our current and future graduate students, and to utilize our faculty breadth and depth in courses we offer. We are also combining certain courses where there was overlap and we are team teaching several courses as well to bring the best expertise and experience to our students. We are also dividing courses between 500 and 600 level to indicate which courses are at a more advanced level (e.g. the 600 level courses). In addition, we seek to offer this course as a slash course to open this up as a technical elective for upper division students. This can provide both a needed 4 credit technical elective and may encourage students to consider graduate school who had not previously done so. This proposed course CCE 423/CCE 523 Concrete Fundamentals, previously CCE 523 Concrete Durability, will be able to go into greater depth in the area of hydration, microstructural development and transport properties and shrinkage/volume change related durability that were covered in the first half of the previous course. The remaining portion of what was Concrete Durability has been placed into a new course that is approved as CCE 621 Durability and Condition Assessment of Reinforced Concrete.
