Civil Engineering program description.

CE2023Mechanics of Materials 5 ch (3C 3L)

Elastic and plastic stress, strain; behaviour of beams and columns, torsion; material strength. 

Prerequisites: APSC 1023.

Corequisite: MATH 1013.

CE2033Structural Analysis5 ch (3C 3L)

Influence lines for beams and trusses; analyses of indeterminate structures including approximate, classical, moment distribution, and numerical methods. 

Prerequisites: CE 2023.

CE2113Soil Mechanics I4 ch (3C 3L*)

Soil properties, seepage, effective stress, consolidation, shear strength.

Prerequisites: GEOL 1044, CE 2023

Corequisite: CE 2703.

CE2703Introduction to Fluid Mechanics4ch (3C 1T)

Physical properties of liquids and gases, fluid statics, kinematics of fluid flow, energy considerations in steady flow, momentum and dynamic forces in fluid flow, fluid measurements, introduction to forces on immersed bodies.

Prerequisites: APSC 1023 and MATH 1013.

CE2913Numerical Problem Solving4 ch (3C 2L)
An introduction to the application of numerical methods and statistical techniques to the solution of civil engineering problems. Introduction to the systems approach and system analysis terminology. Numerical solution of civil engineering problems using root finding, interpolation, integration, and the solution of systems of algebraic equations. Introduction to the numerical solution of ordinary and partial differential equations. Techniques such as multiple linear regression, stepwise regression, time series analysis, nonparametric tests, and optimization are applied to the design and operation of civil engineering systems.Prerequisites: CS 1003, STAT 2593, MATH1503, MATH 2513.
CE2973Civil Engineering Design I 3 ch (2C 2L)

Continued development of communication skills used by engineering through the application of the design process to meet a well-defined set of requirements and constraints. Communication aspects emphasized include graphical representation of designs, formalized design calculations, and the development of project schedules and estimates. Design aspects of emphasize the generation, iteration and analyses of alternatives. Credit will not be given for both this course and CE 3973.

Prerequisites: ENGG 1003, ENGG 1015.
