Join us for an unforgettable experience as we tour ancient and modern civil engineering projects in some of the most beautiful and culturally rich locations in Europe. After once per week meetings winter semester and three weeks of classroom study and preparatory work spring term, we will spend three weeks visiting sites in Italy, France, Belgium, and the Netherlands. Site visits will likely include the Roman Colosseum, the Vatican, the Roman Aqueducts, the Florence Dome, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Eiffel Tower, the Versailles Palace, the Paris Metro, the TGV hi-speed rail system, Atomium Museum, Brussels Parliament, Anne Frank house, various windmills, turbines, and water control structures in the Netherlands, various museums, and more! Students will be organized into teams to study the technical features associated with these sites and learn how ancient and modern civil engineers use creative methods to design and construct infrastructure that benefits society and fuels advancements in civilization. The course will be focused on all disciplines of civil and construction engineering: structures, transportation, construction, geotechnical, water resources, and environmental. The course will include credit for two required civil and construction engineering courses: CCE 201 – Sustainable Infrastructure and CCE 231 – Global Leadership. The course is open to Civil and Construction Engineering majors only.
